Since the color white reflects the sun’s infrared and ultraviolet rays of light, it’s a surefire way to keep cool throughout the summer season. Practicality aside, the hue captures the optimism, ease, and carefree spirit of the season.
This year, forget the drawstring linen pants and crisp button-down blouses and, instead, toy with a more romantic approach to summer whites, donning a flowing maxi dress like the sleeveless Bongo knit and lace maxi dress in ivory, which features a fully lined, crochet lace bodice that blousons ever so slightly, a rounded neckline, and a full skirt that grazes the ankles.
To dress up your ensemble, slip your feet into the Jaclyn Smith “Anessa” slingback pumps, which feature faux patent leather uppers and a rounded peep toe. Complete the monochromatic look with the Jaclyn Smith faux -leather shoulder handbag, which has a single adjustable shoulder strap, a zippered front compartment, and an additional slip pocket along the front of the secondary compartment.
And, since your toes will be showing in your peep-toe sandals, don’t forget to coat them in a pearly white hue like the Milani Nail Lacquer in “White On The Spot.” Talk about getting it “white”!
