We don’t generally follow fashion’s traditional set of rules, but with Memorial Day behind us, we can’t help but lovingly pull out (and shop for) our white wardrobe pieces. From crisp blouses to all-white numbers, there’s something about the signature neutral that undoubtedly reminds us of summer. Light, breezy textures keep us cool on the most humid of days, while winsome details complement beachside lazing and golden hour rosé sessions like no other summer staple.
In our quest to start the season with the perfect white pieces, we tapped Derek Lam 10 Crosby to help us find the most pristine foundations for the outfits we’ll be wearing all summer long.
With a crisp silhouette and feminine details, the Ruched Crop Top is equal parts polish and fun, making it a go-to you’ll practically worship for its versatility. Dress it down for the weekend with a pair of denim shorts, or wear it with a bold mini skirt and platform sandals for an ensemble that easily goes from work to cocktails – Hello, Summer Fridays.
You can’t look back on the perfect summer without remembering the all-white outfit your friends obsessed over throughout that one brunch. Enter the 2018 version: The Side Cutout Romper. Clean and crisp with the right amount of flirt, this one-piece wonder is a prime foundation for summer’s most #TrendingNow accessories. Dress it up with funky block heel and colored lenses for a look that’s certain to be a classic on your Instagram.
