How To Wear All-White At Any Age

All-white is fresh and clean, and a summer classic. And there’s not just one way to wear it, as the gorgeous women of Visible Monday demonstrate.

As always, the first tip is: wear all-white if you want to, and own it. Go fitted or flowy, add a touch of color with a hat or sandals, bag or jewelry. Choose washable if possible, or stay away from coffee and red wine (cannot be done).

Always room in my closet for a cool white piece:


Suzanne of AskSuzanneBell  does a casual white beach dress, with asymmetrical hem and funky fringes. Straw bag, sandals, casual jewelry, and she looks gorgeous. White makes for the ultimate beach dress:



Shelley of The FABulous Journey goes dressy-fabulous in a simple sleeveless white dress. The white belt keeps it looking dressy, and her black high heeled sandals are a fabulous dressy addition. Red lips look brilliant with a white dress, yes?:



Ms. Back-In-Style of Di-alog creates an informal white suit, with an eyelet jacket and white jeans. Her navy shell and shoes (love) and colorful purse are striking accents, and still maintain the white-suit theme:



Oby of ObyGrace wears this two-piece Boho dress beautifully. Off the shoulders and super-full, it’s eye-catching and so summer-y. I won’t show my belly, but Oby does it so well! No accessories needed with this complete, feminine look.

  1. I love all white and think that Oby looks wonderful in her boho dress. i always feel as though I’m on holiday when I wear all white (and I usually am, because it does look best with a bit of a tan!)

  2. Great looks Patti and thank you for including me in your post! I used to shy away from all white, but recently, while vacationing in Hawaii I decided to branch out and give it a try, and I have to say, I really liked the look. I did have to be a bit more careful at dinner with my napkin – but then again, that’s what bleach pens are for, right? I just picked up a pair of while linen pants over at the Anthro sale and can’t wait to give them a try!
    Great post!

  3. I never thought I could do all white myself until The Fab 40s proved me wrong 🙂 I love Sam’s look, it’s such an immensely flattering outfit xoxo

    • Me too – i don’t often so head to toe of any color, but I do like these looks. xo
