What Would Holley Wear: Five Summery Ideas for Wearing White

I’m pretty sure there isn’t anything that gives a cool summer vibe more than wearing “all white.”  Don’t you agree?  From professional work style to resort wear, we’ve got five awesome ideas on how to look cool and stay comfy all summer!

So, let’s get down to business!  If you work in an office environment where looking professional and keeping your cool is a must….think about wearing an all-white pantsuit.  Style star, Olivia Palermo, looks ultra-sophisticated wearing a white pantsuit and carrying a white clutch. A street style look from Milan Fashion week features a style star wearing a white Chanel pantsuit featuring crop pants.  How cool and classy does that sound?

From lunch with your girlfriends to happy hour with your hubby, a white summer dress is so fun and fresh!   An adorable lace shift dress, flats, and a summer hat is a cool summer look and perfect for alfresco dining.  If you are like me and like to wear skirts…no problem. It’s so easy to pair a white tee or shirt with a lace or crocheted skirt for instant summer glam!  We are loving style star, Olivia Palermo’s, wrap lace skirt and white tee ensemble. So fresh and so classy!

To jazz up your all-white outfit, a beautiful statement bnecklace will always take center stage.  We think the white turquoise necklace discovered on Pinterest deserves a standing ovation. Tory Burch always seems to get it right….her white lattice earrings and cuff are summer perfection.  Designer, Julie Voss, has a white pearl collection that is beyond fabulous. From her hinged pearl cuff to layers of bracelets, her designs are classic. Be sure to take a look at some of her stunning pieces on our Pinterest board.

White sandals, slides, and wedges will complete any white ensemble.  Sam Edelman’s lace-up white sandals are so versatile and go with everything from crops to a maxi skirts.  Summer slides are easy-breezy! You can go high-end with a pair of Hermes’ Oran slides, or bring the price down several notches with a pair of white Alibi slides from French Sole.  And of course….you can’t go wrong with a pair of Jack Roger’s white wedges. Both the mid-wedge cork and the rope-wedge will flatter your all-white summer style.

When it comes to resort wear, you can’t miss with an all-white ensemble.   So…where are you “resorting” this summer? Possibly the Biltmore in Arizona or maybe the the Breakers in Palm Beach?  Lucky you!!! Soooo…tennis or pickle ball anyone? Tuckernuck is known for their preppy style and their “all white” tennis ensembles will have you scoring big time.  And of course, we “love” all of Ralph Lauren’s classic white tennis ensembles.

 

Sitting poolside at a five-star resort calls for casual sophistication.  Once again, Tuckernuck comes through with beautiful white dresses that definitely make a fashion-splash! Their white Dani dress could double as a swimsuit cover-up, and their strapless Prin dress is perfectly perfect for poolside lounging. Excuse me, cabana boy….I would just love a vodka and tonic on the rocks, darling!
