How to wear white this season

Bright whites have come out to play, transforming everything from tailoring to accessories. Nod to brighter, sun-filled days with these new-in essentials.

Longer days and warmer temps mean one thing, it’s time to incorporate some lighter shades into your closet. Afterall, you tell us a better combo than fresh whites on tanned skin? Exactly. No jacket required. Absolute fashion bliss! Here’s our pick of the chicest pieces that have just landed on Fos, from unexpected tailoring – from the master that is Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili, to our favourite classic white top with a twist, courtesy of  Christopher Esber.

Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili’s standout white suit is exclusive to Fabric Of Society. The pants are artfully embroidered with reflective crystals, whilst the jacket carries the brand’s signature wrap-around silhouette. It is our go-to much cooler and directional alternative to a traditional event gown or cocktail dress. 

Talking of directional, REMAIN Birger Christensen’s white layered suit dress fuses the best bits of a crisp white oxford shirt with summery pinstripes – this time in a dress-skirt hybrid. We’ll be wearing this with Axel Arigato’s box fresh white sneakers – new to FoS this month.

No summer wardrobe is complete without a white t-shirt. A seemingly simple item that can elevate an outfit instantly. We’re wearing a perfect trio on repeat – Shushu/ Tong’s 3d flower t-shirt, which is anything but basic, REMAIN Birger Christensen’s long sleeved top and Ottolinger’s ribbed t-shirt. Technically not a t-shirt but a top that will see you through the summer with a barrage of compliments, Christopher Esber’s mesh white top sits just off the shoulder (and can be adjusted to wear different ways) and walks the line perfectly between something a bit more dressy and minimalist enough to wear casually with denim – a trait that’s evident with many of his designs. This must-have white top is another masterful piece from the designer who’s contemporary collections are always easy to wear but with a distinctly elegant and luxe feel.

Last but by no means least, one simple way to jump on the white trend is with your accessories. Step forwards Dragon Diffusion’s mini signature woven basket tote, which screams take me to the beach! Crafted in super soft buffalo calf leather, each Dragon Diffusion bag has an antiqued St. Christopher medal charm hand-sewn into each design, as a mark of authenticity.
