White is, without a doubt, the most appropriate color to wear all summer. It’s clean, classy, and polished in a way that still looks fresh and stylish. Even in the most oppressing temperatures, white outfits promise to keep us looking and feeling cool—not to mention the shade looks amazing against a glowing tan. Keep things fresh and crisp this summer in these white pieces that suit every style and occasion.
Belted Tailored Dress
A sleek tailored dress has serious impact when you walk in a room. This polished ensemble can see you through one work meeting to the next, and it’s also pretty enough to wear to a cocktail event or a dressy afternoon soirée. You might want to stick to white wine when wearing this dress, though.
Put your own spin on trendy co-ords by choosing one with a vintage-inspired print. This cute set transitions seamlessly from desk to dinner, and depending on your accessories, the outfit can channel elegance for a big family dinner or casual cool for a small get-together with your friends.
Sleek and Modern Peplum Top
While this piece is undeniably sophisticated and traditional, it also looks edgy and trendy—perfect for women who prefer to go from lunch meeting to dinner date without having to do a quick change. When it’s time to clock out, just add a pair of statement earrings and swipe on bold lipstick, and you’re good to go.
Bell Sleeve Top
If you want to try something retro, go for a top with sleeves that flare out. It’s an easy choice if you want a look that’s both classic and bohemian. Pair this creamy white piece with denim shorts and sandals for a laid-back summer look, or match it with trousers and a cute belt for when you want to wear this at the office.
Intricately Detailed Tee
This summer, look for creative updates on the classic white T-shirt, like pretty embroidery or colorful lace details. These decorated white tees will make for an interesting pairing with your trusty jeans. Add a woven bag to the mix, then dress your outfit up with heeled clogs or dress it down with flats.
Add some attitude to your look when you wear a classic white top with a bold, graphic print. This can be styled with virtually any piece in your closet—from a black pencil skirt for when you need to command the room during a meeting to a pastel-colored eyelet skirt if you want to look more fun and approachable.
All these pieces prove that white can encompass the entire spectrum of style, whether you’re looking for something to wear to your beach trip or for when you want to freshen things up in the workplace. For a look that stays true to your roots and is sleek and breezy, try the white, summery pieces from Bayo’s Maria Clara collection. It’s inspired by the modern Filipina—someone who is delicately feminine yet has a spirited strength about her.
