When I first moved to NYC in 2000, my first day was at Donna Karan International. I had the (very) cool opportunity to work as Donna Karan’s personal assistant (there were 4 of us) right out of college, and then spent the next few years bouncing around the company in different capacities.
My first day of work was in August 2000. I remember I had to help pack Donna Karan’s bags for a summer vacation. I couldn’t get over the amount of white clothing we were packing. After packing for a bit, I mentioned something to one of her other assistant’s about it and she looked at me (confused like why I was asking this) and said, “It’s summer white season.”
Hmmm… summer white season? I never got that fashion memo before.
Let’s put it this way, I was quickly schooled. The summertime meant a lot (and a lot!) of summer whites. Personally, I LOVE it. I think that wearing white in the summer is a perfect summer classic look!
Are you into summer whites??
Here’s 5 Items of Summer Whites you NEED:
1. White Jeans
White jeans are a total staple for the summer. They can be worn with ANYTHING! I mean, anything. I love wearing tees and tanks with them because it dresses them up from just say… normal jeans. If you’re going to invest in a pair, it doesn’t matter if you go for capris or regular jeans! They’re FABULOUS!
2. Little White Dress
If you love a Little Black Dress, you’re going to love a Little White Dress. I’m ALL about the LWD in the summer. Wear to the pool. Wear out to dinner. Wear to the grocery store. This is a perfect buy because you’ll get a TON if use out of it!
3. White Blouse
If you’re looking for something to toss on real quickly, you need a white blouse. I love the option of this blouse because it’s amazingly versatile.
4. White Skirt
A fabulous option for adding white into your life! I love a white skirt on the pool deck, on the beach, at a restaurant, etc. And again… anything goes with it!
5. White Sweater
It DOES get chilly (sometimes) in the summer. A quick cover-up is something you need. I love a white sweater to pop on. You can even wrap it around your shoulders for added fun. 🙂
