Must read: 7 white essentials that always work!

Nothing feels more like spring (and summer) than a clean palette of all-white essentials! Whether it’s a simple white cardigan or a head-to-toe white outfit, you can’t go wrong with this classic spring color. Since many of us are buying more thoughtfully these days, we want to make sure the pieces we do purchase have longevity and can be worn multiple ways. White never, ever goes out of style!

Today on the blog, I’m talking about 7 white essentials you’ll live in all spring … and beyond. You likely already own these key pieces, but if not, here’s a recap along with some new favorite finds to consider. Keep reading to find out more about the 6 essentials!

But first …. Nordstrom is price matching SO MANY things! We’re talking brand-new, in-season, amazing items we ALL need … everything from Frame, Vince, and Rag & Bone to Mother Denim. This is my favorite kind of sale, and it’s the perfect time to grab any spring pieces you have your eye on!

P.S. I’ve been working really hard on updating my Pinterest boards, and I’d love to know what you think.

#1 White jeans

In my opinion, white jeans are the key to making cute spring outfits! Yes, it can be tricky to find the right ones, but when you do I’m certain you’ll wear them all the time. Lately I’ve been wearing the Mother Rascal non-stop. I also tried the Paige Cindy, and I always love this one by Frame. Don’t forget your thong 😉




#2 White Dresses

White dresses are another spring and summer favorite. The accessorizing options are plentiful, and pretty much any sandal works, from a gorgeous caramel one like this to a fun color jelly style like this. Add a cool straw or canvas bag and a cute pair of sunnies to finish off the look.

#3 White tops

This year, there are many pretty white tops, like this puff sleeve style I’m wearing above. There’s also this Rails one, and this one too. Add a couple to your collection — it’s a nice update to all your spring basics.





#4 White sneakers

White sneakers are a year-round staple, and work with everything from casual dresses to faded blue jeans to joggers. Veja and Golden Goose are favorites, but I also love anything from Paul Green, as well as this reasonably priced pair from Sam Edelman. I recently spotted this pair on a trusted blogger that I’m considering trying for myself!



#5 White jackets

Club Monaco – older, similar here | Mother denim | Frame cami | Sandals

White jackets are so versatile; try a blazer, denim jacket or faux leather Moto style. Here are a few options I think you might like!



#6 White tees & tanks

Michael Stars tank | J.Crew sweater over shoulders | Mother flare jeans | Black mules similar | Zara bag, older

This is probably the number one item that needs replacing more than others! Between stains and tiny little holes, our t-shirts get lots of use. My top two favorite tees are the ATM schoolboy V-neck or crew neck, and this one by Frame. I know they’re a little spendy, but I think they’re worth the splurge!


#7 White cotton shirts

Blank NYC faux leather blazer | Frank & Eileen white shirt | Paige Hoxton skinny | Mansur bag | Aquazzura shoes, last season | Brinker & Eliza bracelet

Classic white shirts are super versatile; look for ones that are slightly oversized and not too perfect. This one by Frank & Eileen I’ve worn non-stop, and have found it to work for all seasons. Find one you love, and you’ll be able to wear it with almost everything you own!

  1. Great post! I never understood the “don’t wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.” My mom always told me that it was just white shoes for those dates. And sneakers don’t count!
