Shopping Roundup: How to Wear White This Summer

Upgrade your summer whites game

Clearly we’ve got wearing white on the brain this week. After name checking the neutral hue as the pants du jour for warm weather, we thought we’d go even farther, pulling together more white pieces for your summer wardrobe.

Below, how to wear white this summer:

Start with jeans

One Dapper Street

SG Says: White jeans are a great way to break into summer whites. They’re more sturdy than linen and (hopefully?) won’t make you feel like you’ve been dropped into a 90s boy band music video. Not quite feeling a blinding-white hue? Go for a pair in an off-white shade to turn down the volume.

Break it up

SG Says: We love a monochrome look, and you could absolutely wear white jeans with a white t-shirt if you’re feeling brave (and skipping ketchup on your hot dog). But you can always pair your white with a neutral like grey or navy, or even add a bold hue for a standout.

Wear white like any other neutral

In fact, just pretend it’s gray. It’ll feel less scary.

White, but make it (athleisure) fashion

Justin Bieber, Drake

Dunno what it is, but there’s just something about a man in a sporty white lewk.

Dress It Up

SG Says: White is a color of leisure, but it doesn’t mean you should look too casual. Swap out your sneakers for loafers, your t-shirt for a gingham button-down.

Go with brown accessories

Not black. It’ll feel less aggressive.

Drink and eat safe

If you’re nervous about wearing white for reasons that have nothing to do with fashion, stick to light-colored liquids and maybe pass on the red wine. We’re sure you’d be fine, but why press your luck?
