I need more outfits that require no thought. When I’m staring blurry eyed at my closet of clothes that don’t quit fit I want to get in & get out as fast as possible. Pattern mixing? Not a chance. White top, white pants? Done.

Wearing all white is a bit scary as a mom (hello, messy fingerprints!). But after extensive testing, I can definitively say that white hides spit up quite well.

How to Wear All White

  • Pick pieces in a classic cut (think Audrey Hepburn). You can’t go wrong with a classic button up or white jeans.
  • Use a white outfit as a canvas for statement accessories. Necklaces especially, but also fun sunglasses, bright shoes or bags.
  • Combine white with a bit of navy for a classic sailor style, or you can go for something unexpected, like pairing it with cream or nude.
  • And if you’re unsure about wearing so much white at the same time, throw on a colorful scarf to put you back in your comfort zone.
  • And please, please wear nude underwear.

Shirt – H&M | Dress – Asos | Blazer – J Crew | Hat – BCBG

You can get several outfits with just a few basic white pieces. A lightweight blazer is a great way to get the look because you can layer with whites already in your closet.

Is this a look moms can pull off without a bleach pen nearby? Share your white-wearing tips!

      I think it’s the whole fear of getting it dirty thing … I bought a cream wool coat one year and it was a nightmare to keep clean.

    i have been wanting to try this look all summer
    everytime i think to wear it i realize i am probably going somewhere where my pristine white outfit will not stay white
    perhaps i will just have to dress in all white and sit around reading and watching tv! :)

      haha, you should consider some sort of sophisticated getaway, where you don’t need to get anything done! :)

      Yes, and white is so much cooler in the 100 degree weather than all black! It always makes me feel like I’m at the beach too :)
