Noticed: The Laid-back Way to Wear White Head to Toe, aka Summer Monochrome

The key to keeping it cool: simple shapes.

If you’re anything like us, the higher temps (and the fact that it’s finally, at long last, officially summer) have you feeling, and dressing, lighter. Our go-to outfit has long been head-to-toe white—we call it summer monochrome—but for all its easiness, it can feel a little bold for a casual summer day. How do we freshen it up and dress it down?

Just in time for backyard BBQs and beach weekends, we’ve found our one-word answer: looser. Think wide-leg pants (cropped for a flash of ankle) and the simplest of tanks, slightly oversized, draped and tucked in. The casual silhouette loosens up any notion that all-white is stuffy, and it’s as familiar as your favorite blue jeans and tee. Just, you know, summer-ified.
