All-White Outfits to Pin to Your Mood Board

Go monochromatic.

If you're like us New Yorkers, your version of "color" is black, light black, charcoal, and the occasional gray. Exciting, right? But before you call it quits on any and all color garments, give a white-on-white outfit a go. Okay, technically white is the absence of color, but a neutral nonetheless. The hue is as versatile as black or gray, (opens in new tab) with the advantage of being particularly striking in the spring and summertime (opens in new tab).

We looked to the streets for inspiration on how exactly to pull off the white-on-white moment. Swap your little black dresses for floaty white numbers, your indigo denim (opens in new tab) for bleached, and your khaki (opens in new tab) trenches for cream. Accessorize with neutral pieces like white-rimmed sunglasses (opens in new tab), leather handbags (opens in new tab), and pearlescent jewelry (opens in new tab). All in all, the combo will make for an ultra clean and crisp ensemble. Get even more inspiration with these all-white looks, below.

Don't let cold winterwear weigh you down. Instead, opt for an impeccably chic winter white trench (opens in new tab), a cozy knit sweater, and smart all-season accessories: i.e., crossbody bags and loafers (opens in new tab).
