When I first saw the all-white clothing trend on many of the Spring/Summer 2011 runways, I wrote it off, figuring it wasn’t going to translate well into the real world. But my opinion did a 180 when I saw the recent photos of Blake Lively (above left). Blake, who is a known trendsetter and the current face of Chanel, was photographed wearing a white ensemble at a recent dinner, looking beyond fabulous.
While Blake pulled this look off flawlessly, the question still must be asked: Is is this trend wearable for non-celebrities? (After all, we can’t all have Karl Lagerfeld dressing us!) While all-white daytime looks might be tough to pull off, I personally adore the idea of wearing all-white for evening.
As far as wearing all-white in the daytime is concerned, I prefer breaking up the look by adding black tights to a white dress (as seen in the photo above right) or adding a small pop of color with jewelry. And, with all of this being said, I’m still wary of white shoes for day or night – I just think they’d get dirty too easily!
