How to Wear White

Apr 04, 2014

Crisp whites are perfect for the warm summer months but the idea of anything more than a white t-shirt can be a bit daunting. But a crisp, all-white ensemble smacks of summer days and jaunts to the seaside even if you're nowhere near a beach. Go for white jeans, a cool pair of white sandals or swap your denim shorts for a white sundress! This simple color looks best with minimal accessories so less is definitely more when it comes to working the white trend. We show you the easiest ways to work white into your summer wardrobe

White Jeans

The key to looking chic in your white jeans is simply how you style them. A super simple look is going classic monochrome and pair your white jeans with a cool black top. Or go with a pretty print to really amp up your summer style. We love the look of white jeans with simple silver metallic sandals, black or tan - avoid heavy looking footwear!  A great pair of white jeans is a summer classic

White Jacket

A crisp white jacket can transform all of your outfits into polished summer looks. A cool white jacket as a summer jacket instantly brightens up whatever you're wearing and instantly makes it looks more breezy. A white jacket looks especially fabulous when paired with a pair of classic blue jeans but looks equally great paired with navy for a more nautical look.

White Sandals

If you're still a bit hesitant about wearing head to toe white, test out the waters by wearing a cool pair of white sandals or flats. White shoes look best when they're sleek and simple. Look for simple, unembellished ballet pumps or sleek sandals that aren't too strappy. We love these Saltwater sandals - best of all you can even wear them in water!

The Little White Dress

Stand out from the crowd and invest in a little white dress for summer! It never goes out of style, you can dress it up or dress it down and it's an easy way to instantly channel beachy summer style! Just don't pair them with white shoes - you don't want to look too matchy-matchy. Pair the look with black accessories for graphic punch that simultaneously classic and trendy.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
