When we think of spring fashion, we usually envision a plethora of vibrant hues and bold prints, but this year many designers seem to be celebrating simpler times with minimalism as their key focus.
Advancing from last year’s ‘Winter White‘ trend, white was a major theme on the women’s Spring 2014 runways emerging from brands like Chanel, Victoria Beckham, Rebecca Taylor, and 3.1 Phillip Lim. The all-white trend is so versatile that pieces from each show varied in texture, volume, structure and proportion, making for an easily translatable look from the runway into every young professional’s wardrobe.
The white-on-white trend occurring in men’s ensembles this spring is also making such a large visual impact because of it’s typically rare occurrence in male fashion. Several designers notably included all-white suiting in their spring collections. Jil Sander and Dolce & Gabbana embraced the trend in their men’s collections offering all white suiting, while GQ claimed, “Head-to-toe white was the most noticeable trend to come off the catwalks this season. Trust us, a bright white suit is going to be essential to your summer wardrobe this time next year.” Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, and Berluti also offered all-white ensembles in their men’s assemblages.
Though this simple trend seems easy to pull off, it is important to mind tailoring, tone, occasion and, most importantly, practicality before whiting out your wardrobe.
