Happy hump day! It’s Day 18 of 23 Days of Spring Fashion, and we’re talking about how to style a white monochromatic outfit for spring.
BR cotton-hemp cardigan // ATM t-shirt (option) // Frame Le High ankle straight jeans // Dolce Vita Paily slide sandals (also at Bloomies & Zappo’s) // BR leather hobo // Gucci sunglasses (option) // Kendra Scott hoops // similar pendant
I’m kinda bummed because these jeans were on sale yesterday… in fact, so was this cardigan! But today they’re both back to full price. Boo to the hoo.
They also both seem to be low inventory, so I’m going to go ahead and share this look. Maybe you already have them or something like them in your closet. If you want one of these pieces, keep an eye on them. The sweater has a good chance of going on sale again, as Banana runs sales frequently.
These are the Frame Le High ankle straight jeans, and they look slightly more polished than your typical skinny jeans, due to the cut and the way they were pressed with the crease down the front of the leg. Plus, the straighter silhouette is very on-trend at the moment.
They kind of remind me of this pink pair that I styled a few years back. I just spent like 10 minutes going through my archives to find this outfit, and sure enough, the jeans have almost the exact same measurements!!! I have an odd memory. ANYWAY!
Suffice it to say, a more tailored white jean like these is a really nice option to have for dressier looks this spring/summer. They’re especially good for those of you who need work wear or business casual attire.
I wore my Dolce Vita braided slide sandals, but you could go with a closed-toe shoe if you need that for work. These sandals are definitely among my new favorites, for both for the comfort as well as the design.
The braided straps are on trend, the croc embossed block heel is a fun detail, and they’re easy to walk in despite having an open back. I was wearing them the morning of this shoot, running around at the last minute loading the car and carrying an armful of clothes on hangers down the stairs, and I was amazed at how stable I felt wearing them.
These sandals run true to size, and they’ve been restocked at the moment, but they usually sell out within hours.
I do a lot of black and grey looks, but sometimes I forget about white and taupe. Isn’t this such a soothing mix of shades for spring/summer?
And how funny is this — when I went to check inventory on the Banana Republic website this morning, I realized they have the Brazilian Sand cardigan styled over a white tee with white jeans too!
This sweater is a nice, lightweight knit for spring, but it still feels substantial. I love the contrasting buttons, and it’s a really nice classic length. For size reference, I’m wearing the small.
As you can see, I kept my accessories fairly minimal — silver hoops and my diamond pendant — and I carried my taupe leather hobo.
I love how the white tee with white jeans creates a column of color that is elongating and slimming, and the taupe sweater frames the look. The low contrast between the taupe and white keeps this tone-on-tone look muted, but also adds some warmth and softness near the face.
I will definitely be wearing this outfit to church or out to dinner this spring!
What do you think? Would you wear a white monochromatic outfit?
