All White

As you can tell, white is a strong color trend this year. No longer confined to the summer months, it is now perfectly acceptable to wear white all year round. White denim is quite a big trend to note too. Donning all white from head to toe is your assured route to sartorial greatness. If you’re not going full monochrome, make sure to select accessories that stand out just like that woven tote and studded sandals.
