Stand Out

7 years ago by

Whenever the sun’s out and I’m wearing white, I feel like I’m on vacation Capri. To me, it’s really the color of the summer season — even though it can look just as good against a backdrop of white snow or fall-colored leaves

The best complement to white is a darker neutral color, like a navy or black, which makes it really stand out. So, in lieu of a glowing tan, and especially for those of us who are spending these long summer days in the city, a black accessory or detail does the trick!

Whether it’s a big block of black to offset white pants, navy breton stripes (plus a necessary red lip and effortless tumbling hair) or something more subtle, like bold black button details on a white summer dress.

It’s the contrast that makes white look even brighter, more illuminated and fresher (even if you’re lucky enough for that contrast to be a deep blue of the ocean). How do you offset your summer whites? And what’s your favorite destination to wear them? Capri, anyone?
