The temperatures are rising, the palms are swaying in the beachy breeze and our late balmy evenings are back. It’s safe to say that Summer is very much here and we can see that white is most definitely the new black when it comes to this summer season’s fashion in Australia.
We’ve been asked in our Boutique recently quite a lot about the best white outfits this season, and what casual summer dresses and wedding party dresses are going to be the ones to wear now restrictions are a little looser and we can arrange some low key gatherings again. So, we’ve put together our top list of the best white outfits for Summer!
Zulu & Zephyr - Dive Dress White
This gorgeous A line dress in a crisp white cotton is a timeless classic look for any summer occasion. The thin straps and clean cut neckline is effortless as a work lunch outfit, but also is extremely flattering for your cousin’s rather nice backyard summer party. We love it's versatile simplicity so much it features in our new Summer Dresses category!
ÉSS THE LABEL - Abby Top White
This flirty yet sophisticated take on the classic ruched blouse is a must-have white addition to your summer wardrobe for relaxed summer outings, wear over or off the shoulder, style as you please. Pair this super soft brushed 100% cotton top with jeans and sandals, or a high waisted mini and heels to match any social situation. It’s light and cool, so if you need a little upper body protection from the sun but want to feel the breeze, this top is your friend.
Faithful The Brand - Rose Wide Leg Pant - Plain White
We just LOVE these pants! You can’t go wrong with a stunning white high-waisted pant this summer, match with a sleek crop top or slinky bodysuit, and garnish with slick hair for a chic evening look. Or if you’re feeling low key for a trip to town, pop on a plain singlet and a floral summer hat.
ÉSS THE LABEL - Anouk Blouse White
There’s not much this blouse wont go with, floaty, light and with a loose V neckline, luxuriate in flattering gentle white cotton. The cuffs are elasticated, so worn up by the elbows or by the wrists, style it to make your mood. Channel a boho vibe with a billowing maxi skirt, or go a little ‘Bad Sandy’ from Grease and match with tight leather pants for a glam girls night look.
Zulu & Zephyr - Surface One Piece Swimsuit
Pack your overnight bag, and dive into the holidays with this stunning shoulder tie snow white swimsuit. You’ll bring vintage style elegance, with a modern low profile no-underwire cut. And as the sun drops, and the cocktails are sipped, cover up with a white sarong at your waist to make the most of your sunkissed glow.
ÉSS THE LABEL - Paloma Collared Linen Shirt
We’ve seen real signs this year in the industry that the perfect ‘White Blouse Shirt’ has been a key item at fashion shows (the ones that were actually allowed to happen) and trending with fashion bloggers online. There are SO many ways you can wear a white shirt, our favourites however are tucked into something on the bottom by Neuw Denim, or worn as a floaty, chic layer over a high waisted bikini.
Bec & Bridge - La Fontelina Dress in White
This eco-conscious dress in stunning white has a touch of european elegance to it to wow at any smart casual event. With delicate small covered buttons down the centre, it has a vintage feel, but with a modern hidden zipper at the back for easy and quick entry. Delicate strappy heels like these white delights by Senso suit this look perfectly.
Veja Sneakers - V-10 Sneaker in Extra White
While talking of shoes, sustainable and eco-conscious sneaker brand Veja hit the money with these triple white sneakers. If heels aren’t quite what’s right for you today, go casual but clean cut with these V-10’s matched with a playful summer dress for an outfit to turn heads.
ÉSS THE LABEL - Frankie Linen Jumpsuit
A total must-have dress up or down number for this summer. It absolutely flew off the shelves, unsurprising as white linen is an Australian go to each year. Linen is hypoallergenic, and it's durability makes it last much longer than other fabrics.
ÉSS THE LABEL - Crystal Wrap Dress
This divine number is right on with the current hot trend of puffy, almost Victorian style sleeves. A strong look, but a soft silhouette and a V line neck creates an effortless outfit combined with sneakers or sandals.
Neuw Denim - Lola Mom Jean in Lune
It’s not always roasting temperatures, so a tight white skinny jean is a must-have for any wardrobe. Neuw do it best and combine a high fashion look with an edgy rock ‘n roll inspired cut in these white jeans, complete with signature fob ring, designed in 100% cotton. Did you know, the ‘Lola’ jean was named as such after that Kinks song.
ÉSS THE LABEL - Linen Carmen Bustier Top
Sexy, yet demure, this bustier top has a little senorita sass in it for any styling. We love it with a high waisted flowing skirt, like this Arlo Ruffled Maxi Skirt also in white...Surprise, Surprise.
