With sun-kissed skin, warmer temperatures and brighter days, head-to-toe white outifts are the gift that keeps on giving each and every summer. But - even without the spillage anxiety (red wine drinkers, beware) - they can be a tricky look to style. We looked to some of our favourite dressers for inspiration, below.


1. Keep It Simple

Over-styling or overthinking your look can only do it harm. The best example, a knitted crochet dress always makes for effortlessly chic, summer styling – just add a woven basket bag and your choice of sandals.


2. Try Tailoring

White is the perfect way to make summer tailoring feel fresh and light in keeping with the mood and weather forecast. HURR girl Hannah Lewis sets her off with sleek black accessories but a pair of chunky white flatform flip flops would work just as nicely here.


3. Break It Up

If one-colour-dressing feels too monochromatic for you, try breaking it up with an oversized accessory, like India Sehmi's Loewe basket bag. For ultra-feminine and airy dresses like this Sleeper one, a pair of chunky sandals like Sehmi's pictured Chanel ones add cool factor.


4. Go Tonal

If your look feels too stark, simply mixing in shades of off-white or ecru can help soften the look, as Thandi Maqubela does here in her linen jumpsuit and staple white tee.


5. Two Degrees of Separation

If you prefer separates but love the 'hassle-free' styling that comes with throwing on a dress each morning – a co-ord is the instant outfit for you. Master of tonal dressing, Jessica Skye, proves it carries serious sartorial weight in current season Totême.
