Haute Trends: summer’s top white picks

pinktree white

The number of people who don’t believe in keeping their colour palette in sync with the season is actually surprising, and there is nothing more heat-inducing than seeing someone dressed in head-to-toe black during this sweltering heat! For the rest of the year our wardrobe supports bright bold colours, loud prints and everything eye-catching for the sake of colour therapy, but these few months of blistering heat is when we need to channel the calming, cool effect of the colour white. Plus, white is such a classic that you can never go wrong with it. There is no reason your white outfits need to look bland or too casual; there are lots of key features you can play around with to add some trend and oomph to a white look.

Here’s our pick of the best white outfits we’ve seen this season…

Zara Shahjahan’s white gharara

From Zara Shahjahan’s Coco lawn collection.

This Zara Shahjahan classic gharara and kameez is traditional and super-chic. The pink tasseled dupatta takes it even further!

 

Sana Safinaz’s classic white tunic

Sana Safinaz latest line of solid coloured tunics with floral motifs is perfectly trendy and minimal.

Monochrome with a pop of red is as classic as it can get! A coloured embroidered motif on a white tunic is the perfect way to add a pop of colour and grab some attention.

 

Shamsha Hashwani’s sophisticated, formal whites

In signature Shamsha Hashwani aesthetic: minimal and sleek.

The cooling effect of this gradient toned kameez makes us want to wear it to every occasion! The minimal embellishment on the neckline adds the a slight formal touch, which is enough for us to pair it with statement earrings and wear it to a soiree on a sunny day.

 

Sanam Chaudhri’s signature chikankari + lace

Sanam Chaudri

This Sanam Chaudri ensemble has been a haute pick for many during Eid.

White-on-white-on-white is a great way to go for the rest of the summer! The amalgamation of chikankari+lace is done so beautifully here, plus the use of one predominant colour is what makes this ensemble so pretty.

 

White tradition by The Pink Tree

The PinkTree Company’s ‘Zun Zarine’ Collection comprised of loads of traditional white pieces.

The heat hasn’t stopped the wedding season to restart in full swing, which is why we’re so grateful to have found the perfect shaadi outfit! A touch of gold and some printed lowers are enough to make your outfit look shaadi-esque enough.

 

White and ethnic with Blocked

Blocked Textile excels in such trendy printed numbers.

Of course black and white tend to go hand-in-hand, and the right amount of  print on this tunic makes it look on point.

 

Contemporary whites

New designer on the block, Amna Chaudhry keeps a minimal aesthetic which proves to be the trend this season.

Who said black is the sexiest colour? Check out this sleek white dress, which can be dressed up or down, and look just as fabulous!

 

Go festive in white Elan

Elans

Elan’s Festive collection knocked it out of the park!

Another perfectly festive number, with silver embellishment and a printed silk dupatta to complete the look. Take note ladies, a printed dupatta is your go-to accessory with a simple outfit this season.

 

The classic white for men

And of course, white has always been the classiest colour for men, and this is how to take your simple kurta shalwar up a notch, by adding a sleek tailored white waistcoat to it.
