Ways to Wear White This Summer

The hottest color for summer is white. And it makes sense, because white is not only crisp and pretty, it is also quite feminine and looks killer with any shade of skin. And really, that's what we want in the summertime, isn't it? With that being said, it can be a tricky color to pull off. No fear, we've got you covered with a few different ways to rock the color of the season, wherever you may find yourself.

On Date Night - As a mom, it can be hard to wear white without getting some sort of baby-related stain (we won't go into details) all over it. In this case, you may have to save your whites for date night! This look is perfect for just that— a white top paired with a white blazer. Remember: You're taking advantage of the kid-free time.

At the Office - White is the perfect color to wear to the office. It's sophisticated, chic, easily dressed-up and will make you stand out from the crowd in the best way possible. We love this pulled-together look for summertime office. Don't forget the jacket, though, because A/C can get chilly.

On a Play Date - Yes, we know that white is not necessarily a "practical" color to wear, especially while small children are around you, but it doesn't mean it's completely off limits. Opt for some fun shorts and a casual white top for an effortless play date look that will stand up to whatever may come.

During a Sweat Session - Yes, you can wear white to work out in, too! In the summer months, especially if you'll be running outside, white clothes prove to be cooler since they deflect the heat, so really this is the best choice. Plus, it's cute. So, there's that too.
