I’m about to sound totally cliche here, but I must admit, the white trend is white hot for Summer 2015. What makes it extraordinarily appealing this season in particular? It’s not just the color white that does it anymore. White hot means more than just white. It means accessories, embellishments or texture overlay. It means extra additions that make these white hot dresses stand out from the pack. Check out how these celebrity fashionistas get it done:
White HOT (with a belt)
Jamie Chung actually isn’t wearing a dress at all. She’s wearing an Elizabeth and James sleeveless turtleneck and a white pencil skirt. But what keeps this outfit from looking monochromatic (i.e. boring) is her skinny belt that breaks it all up. Of course, the leopard print accessories don’t hurt either.
White HOT (with ruffled sleeves)
Katy Perry‘s creamy Chloe dress does wonders for her gorgeous shoulders. (Of course, those cool embellished straps do help deviate from the all-white getup.) There are so many things to love about this outfit, including the ruffles and the diamonds. Adding just a touch more (which is actually less) makes the phrase “less is more” mean something for white.
White HOT (with overlay)
Can’t stop staring at the windowpane check overlay on Hilaria Baldwin! (What did you think we were going to say?) The all-white ensemble stands out from the pack, thanks to the textured peplum and the sheer fabric over it. This girl just had a baby 2 months ago. Who says white makes people look bigger?
White HOT (with print)
A paint-splattered frock is just what the doctor ordered. Here’s a new way to wear white. The scribble print certainly makes this sheath stand out, and while I don’t think I would wear the dark Christian Louboutin pumps Katie Holmes decided to throw on, it doesn’t take away from the genius of this white HOT Milly dress.
