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
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
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
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
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 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
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.
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
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.
