As summer rapidly approaches, the appropriateness of wearing an all white outfit increases. I’ve been thinking a lot about all white lately, ever since my brother got a pair of vintage, cropped, white Levi’s in Japan and I tried them on with this old white tee and it was fresh. Then Vans brought out those all white Old Skools and I was all, ‘oh shit’ and decided that this was going to be the look I’m going to try this summer.

The actual reality of an all white outfit is a bit scary with the threat of spills and all, but I think this season is the time it’s really going to be embraced by New Zealanders (or Aucklanders at least). I’m not sure about all stark bright high white, but there are a tonne of different shades of it (off-white is softer and a lot less Liz Hurley if you know what I mean) and I think cream is just as good, if not better in some cases.

James and I decided to take on this trend and put together a little editorial of some white/off-white/cream looks this week, check em out – credits below:
