In 1998, Sean P. Diddy Combs introduced the world to living lavishly by throwing one of the most legendary “modern-day Gatsby” parties in East Hampton. The theme was all-white ensembles that had many looking dapper and dashing. Fast forward two decades and the absence of color trend has resurfaced in a pared-back and less flashy approach that is attainable to most. Cushnie et Ochs, Etro, Simone Rochas, and Zimmermann are among the slew of designers seamlessly incorporating the neural shade into their Spring/Summer 18 collections.
But why has all-things white returned in such a significant way? From the minimalist phenomenon sweeping the nation to a life lead through a more simplified and realist status quo. Today, many are living by the less is more rule.
Monochrome looks give styling a less daunting aspect for those days you simply have no clue; it happens to the best of us. Try a relaxed cotton-blend white tank top, slightly distressed cropped white jeans, and metallic sneakers. For the accessories, try a pair of oversized cats eye sunglasses and a pop of color in your handbag department for a bit of pizazz. And, while you may have to be mindful of your iced matcha or dirty chia on your way to work, it’s a small price to pay for looking calm, cool, and collected without all that fuss.
