How to weave white into your wardrobe this summer

Now that the weather is getting warmer (and just as importantly, a whole lot drier), we can all revel in the fact that our summer wardrobes can be revived for the next few months.

Whether it’s the BBQ-friendly floaty dress, the short sleeved t-shirt which can be worn casually for the day and glammed up for the evening, or of course the summer sandal which allows you to finally forget the long winter of tights and trousers – there is a lot of joy to be had in summer dressing.

And what better way to embrace the new seasonal freedom than by weaving light, bright shades of white into your outfits? Not just for Wimbledon, the understated elegance of wearing these light colours in the sunshine can be seriously underrated.

Now, there is no denying that wearing all white can be a little daunting for various reasons (maybe you’ve seen scarred by a grass-stain ordeal or red wine incident already), so if you’re feeling a little intimidated, we suggest mixing and matching some of the white tonal pieces below into different outfits, to create a look that’s still stylish and classy, but feels a little safer.

Shade-wise, there’s many variations of white to chose from to still remain on trend – from ivory, to eggshell and even the classic cream, you can get the look with tops, dresses, skirts, and trousers, or even just through your choice of accessories – it’s all down to your personal preference.

Here, the YOU fashion team have rounded up some of the best tonally white items on the high-street which you can shop right now and start embracing your new white wardrobe. Head to the checkout page to snap them up before everyone else does…
