When you think of the hallmarks of classic style, there are certain items that jump right out like your white basics. If there is one color everyone needs to have in their wardrobe, it has to be white. Alexa Dagma is a style blogger known for her minimalist, effortless, and urban style featuring the white basics you might already have in your wardrobe. Whether you have that minimalist, casual, classic, or feminine style, keep on reading for fashion tricks on how to style your white basics.
Everyone has a little black dress, but a white dress is what you need if you want to up your style game. A bohemian silhouette will work well for hippie souls, while a casual shirtdress will be perfect for a casual brunch date. Like Alexa, think of spicing up your plain dress with a leopard print clutch or a brightly colored bag. Or, think of topping your white dress with a lightweight cardigan in the cooler months and a denim or army jacket in the summer.
Basic White Tee or Blouse
This one is a must-have in every working woman’s wardrobe. Basic as it sounds, you can wear your white tee, shirt, or blouse blue jeans for a classic vibe, or pair it with something with loud prints to balance things out. If you don’t have strict dress codes at the office, you can always pair your white top with casual bottoms like jeans or leggings, but keep it professional with a chic blazer. Basic white tees or tank tops with flattering necklines can be worn with biker jackets for an urban look, or layer it under your sleeveless dress for a quintessential 90s girl look.
Basic White Shorts or Trousers
Though navy jeans and shorts sound timeless, white washes are perfect for the summer and beachwear. Like Alexa, look for chic hemlines if you want dressier shorts that you can wear with printed tops for a semi-casual look. Ripped denim jeans are edgy, and white ripped jeans are badass sophisticated that you can wear with long coats in the colder months. If there is another white ensemble you need to own, they have to be flared or palazzo pants. Like Alexa, can pair them with an edgy leather jacket to add some sophisticated vibe to your street style.
Basic White Skirt
If you’re pear-shaped, be careful wearing white skirts as it may tend to highlight your wide hips even more. Like Alexa, think of going for an all-white look with a chic crop top teamed with a white miniskirt and classic pumps, or a casual-chic style with a lightweight sweater teamed with white tulle skirt.
It might be trickier to keep white sneakers clean, but you can wear them with anything and look cool. Like Alexa, think of wearing them with your all-white outfit or urban outfit to add some effortlessly cool vibe to your street style.
White Blazer or Coat
Whether you’re heading to the office or to the weekend brunch, remember that you look more put-together when you wear a blazer or coat, and when your said topper is pristine white in color as it just makes you look more sophisticated. Indeed, white basics are one of the most timeless and functional fashion pieces you must have in your closet to create multiple looks.
