I Always Think This Is the Easiest Colour to Wear in Summer

Once you come to terms with the "splash risk" of wearing white, it's actually the easiest colour to wear in summer. Nothing makes you look like a person who hasn't checked their emails in two weeks than head-to-toe white linens. After all, this is the unofficial uniform of Ibiza town. However, you can wear white back home and look just as relaxed and effortless as you would on a holiday.

We don't need to tell you how to wear a little white dress with sandals, but we have seen lots of interesting ways to style white linen trousers, jumpsuits and midi skirts already this summer. For a full OOO look, pair white wide-leg trousers with a swimsuit and basket bag. But you don't need to be in a swimsuit in the Med to wear all-white outfits. We particularly love how Brittany Bathgate wore her white short-sleeved shirt tucked into a midi skirt with a pair of strappy flat sandals.

You don't need to wait for a rogue hot day to wear white in the UK either (nothing looks as chic as a white coat paired with light-wash jeans). Keep scrolling to see how to wear white this summer. Just remember: Napkins are your friend.
