Say Hello to Summer With These Crisp White Wardrobe Staples
White clothes are as synonymous with summer as beach days, barbecues, and the Fourth of July. Every year when the temperatures start to climb, that's how you know it's time to shove the dark, heavy fabrics to the back of your closet and unpack your light, airy pieces. We don't know about you, but we've been waiting all year to break out our summer whites, and now the time has finally come.
From crisp white denim to dreamy sundresses, there are tons of different ways to rock the seasonal color trend. If you're in need of some inspiration, never fear — we put together a list of some of our favorite white pieces from Banana Republic and tips on how to style them.
Banana Republic Denim Mini Skirt With Raw Hem
This Banana Republic Denim Mini Skirt With Raw Hem ($80) has a flattering A-line cut. Style it with a tailored, menswear-inspired shirt and sandals for a head-to-toe white look.
Banana Republic Ramie Gathered Maxi Dress
The breezy linen-like fabric of the Banana Republic Ramie Gathered Maxi Dress ($159) will be your best friend on hot days. When you feel like dressing up, wear it with nude heels and your biggest, brightest statement clutch.
Banana Republic UV Resistant Sweater Tank
A basic ribbed tank top, like this UV Resistant Sweater Tank ($41-$60) is a summer must-have. It can be the foundation for any type of outfit, regardless of style or occasion. Tuck it into high-waisted jeans, a patterned midi skirt, or a pair of joggers.
Banana Republic Hemp-Cotton Sweater Top
If your style tends towards preppy, invest in this Banana Republic Hemp-Cotton Sweater Top ($80). It looks like part of a vintage-inspired tennis uniform, so you may as well commit to the look and pair it with a pleated tennis skirt. Or, for a more casual 'fit, opt for jean shorts and slides.
Banana Republic Gingham Cotton Gauze Mini Dress
The Banana Republic Gingham Cotton Gauze Mini Dress ($139) proves that there's nothing boring or plain about a little white dress. It's all in the details, from the subtle checkered print to the belted waist. Wear it with a pastel-colored pair of sneakers for a bright daytime look.
Banana Republic Slim Tencel-Linen Pants
Keep things casual with the Banana Republic Slim Tencel-Linen Pants ($99). These have the look of a jogger with their drawstring waist and tapered fit, but are made from a slightly more elevated linen fabric. We like them best with a simple tank and slip-on sneakers.
Banana Republic UV Resistant Sweater Shorts
These Banana Republic UV Resistant Sweater Shorts ($80) are comfy, cute, and they protect from UV rays. You can also buy the matching sweater or top from the UV Yarn collection for a coordinated loungewear look.
