The 30-Second Styling Trick Everyone's Trying This Summer

What do Bianca Jagger, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and Jennifer Lopez have in common? They are all iconic examples of how wearing head-to-toe white is about as chic as it gets. Historically, if you go way back to the Regency era, wearing white was a sign of wealth simply because you could afford to keep it clean. Skip ahead to today, and (thanks to the introduction of Vanish) we can confidently wear all-white as a rather affordable and easily stylish outfit.

No doubt you have a few white pieces floating around in your wardrobes already, but have you thought about pairing them together? It doesn't take more than two or three ingredients to complete the look. Maybe that vintage white blouse with your Weekday white denim jeans? Perhaps your new pleated skirt with a white racer tank?

While it is seemingly one of the older styling tricks in the book, we keep seeing our favourite fashion influencers and style stars trying out the formula in fresh new ways. Always ones to try and sartorially think outside of the box, we were keen to break down all the ways one can try wearing an all-white outfit. So if you're unafraid of the occasional coffee stain (it will happen), keep scrolling for the head-to-toe white outfits we're copying this summer.

A little pattern goes a long way. Incorporating a simple polka-dot piece adds a fun touch to this look.

This look is very Laurel Canyon in the 1970s for all the best reasons. Relaxing into crochet keeps you cool and chic.

Vintage stores are the best place to stock up on cotton blouses. We're loving eyelet details and lace this year.

Our official Parisian style correspondent gives all-white outfits the French-fashion approval. This is perfect for those dates that go from day to night. 

So Bianca Jagger. This outfit needs an excellent two-piece and little else.

Mixing frills and athleisure is the best part of summer style freedom. It works so well and gives a '90s edge.
