Hue love:
summer whites

Few looks feel as timeless as white in the summertime.

Through the years, the color white has trended in fashion for a number of reasons. Some practical (the belief that it keeps you cooler in the sun), others more symbolic (the perception of wealth or innocence).

Today, white is a more sartorial choice. And an excellent one. We’re particularly loving it this season in airy fabrics and silhouettes with flow. In shades from Sea Salt to Crema to Ivory to classic White, it’s at the heart of our summer collection.

Simple and refreshing, the color white represents hope, clarity, and optimism.

Not sure which shade of white will suit you best? In theory, the brightest whites are well suited for darker complexions, while fairer skin benefits from a touch of creaminess. Pictured:

Did you know?
In the late 1800s, wealthy city-dwellers packed white clothing for their summer country homes as a respite from the industry and messiness of urban life.

Summer whites can feel as dressy or as casual as you like. We love the way a bit of barely there embroidery elevates a tee or blouse. Pictured:

And be sure to finish your all-white ensemble with a statement piece, like the Payton James Wood Bucket Tote.
