Dressing In White For Summer Nights

Despite doing it each year, there’s something utterly refreshing about reaching out for white as soon as summer rolls around. Is it because the hue offers an uplifting wave of optimism after the cold days of winter? Or perhaps it’s our tried-and-true belief that the non-colour colour will never disappoint, no matter which outfit you pin it on. White is the colour of every summer, always.

By day, in monochrome, it’s easy, breezy -- matching the rising temperatures, sometimes catching the wind as you sit by a window. But by night, white takes on new meaning. It befriends its longtime non-colour ally, black. And when not creating monochrome magic, it gathers ruffles, volume and form to make a dramatic yet minimal statement.
