How to wear white

Head-to-toe white looks ultra chic but can be tricky to wear. Discover how to create a flawless finish here

Featuring: Tibi PF18; See By Chloé PF18

Wearing white has always come with cachet: the historic symbol of purity, serenity and status. In many ways, not much has changed. Who doesn’t want to be the woman so poised that she can wear white to a party without worrying about spills? White is also synonymous with fresh starts, making it the perfect color to breathe new life into your wardrobe. This season brought modern updates in the form of everything from languid layers to precision tailoring, meaning there’s a white look to suit every style.


White is an easy way to put a chic spin on your 9-to-5 uniform. Keep things simple and elegant by investing in streamlined, wear-forever classics like Khaite’s button-up trench coat, which will elevate pared-back neutral pieces. Alternatively, team Tibi’s relaxed, masculine pant suit with a T-shirt and sculptural shoes; when it’s time to clock off, just add a pair of statement earrings and you’re good to go.

Take your cue from the likes of See By Chloé or Brock Collection and fine-tune your layering skills. Add interest to all-white ensembles by mixing in delicately pretty floral prints or a mix of contrasting fabric weights and textures. Now all you need to buy is the best detergent you can find…
