Little says SUMMER more than all white! It’s fresh, beachy and cool.
But you might be like me and hesitant to wear all white. My life is messy, I leave in the dusty desert of Phoenix and somehow it seems like my kids always have jelly or something sticky on their hands. But wearing all white is so chic so I wanted to put together these tips.
We know accessories make any outfit but when wearing all white, it’s easy to blend in without some bold accessories.
A few favorites:
A fabulous tote (straw, metallic or a bold color are all great)
A cute hat (a fedora with bling, a “beachy grandma” number or a trendy straw hat will keep you cool and really elevate your outfit).
BONUS Tab’s Tip: Remember, off white or cream is warm so wear gold jewelry and warm makeup while pure white is cool so wear silver jewelry and cool makeup.
2:: Add a pop of color.
You know I’m all about color but white really needs some help.
A printed top (preferably with white in it)
A statement necklace (plus look at the bag and shoes below!)
Fun fingernails or toenails
A scarf (especially in your hair!)

3:: Natural elements
When I think white linen (whether clothing or home decor), I automatically think
- shell jewelry
- a straw tote
- brown woven sandals
- accents of leather, jute or wood
4:: Add nautical stripes or a tropical print.
Both are also classic summer prints and add interest and FUN.
5:: Mind your makeup.
Just like when wearing black, wearing all white means you need to darken your makeup a bit so avoid looking washed out. A little extra cheek color or a bold lip color both go a long way! Red, coral and fuchsia are all terrific summer lip colors.
Summer is a great time to try a shimmery eye color, a fresh new blush or a fun eyeliner color like purple or blue. Try something new!
6:: Try a new completer piece.
Have you tried a lacy kimono? Have you worn shorts and a blazer? Now’s the time to experiment! White goes with everything so it’s a smart buy and easy to create outfits with.
