I know it feels like we should be dressing more for Fall and Winter, but as far as the Dalestyle staff is concerned, Memorial Day weekend is our official kick off to summer! So, we thought we’d share one of our favorite trends from the Spring-Summer ’13 runway: all white. Last year it seems everyone was mixing all different kinds of patterns, but for SS ‘13 the runways were full of monochromatic looks that emphasized shape and textiles with our favorites done in pure white.
Why not try an all white linen or silk suit a la Narciso Rodriguez or DKNY with a sheer button up or silky camisole underneath. I mean hello 70’s Bianca Jaggar en Saint Tropez! The key to this look is mixing sensuous fabrics in the same hue and making sure the fit is more relaxed than super tailored. The silky Celine white rainbow pants, from our Tanteshaus collection, would be a perfect example with a sheer white button up and a great pair of strappy Manolos.
You can also sex up the all white look by wearing white leather. It would work especially well this Memorial Day considering the unseasonal weather. The white leather eyelet dresses Proenza are so feminine, yet have an added edge because of the materials used. A beautiful white dress can always be made more interesting with the right accessories like a leather jacket or a kooky pair of polka dot shoes.
Yes – we know it’s cold out, but even if you’re wearing a full on suit, remember there’s no other hue that screams summer better than white!
