White Monochromatic Outfit for Spring

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.

A Chic 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.

As for the jeans, they’re also available at Shopbop (who should be running their big spring sale very soon) and on the Frame website, where you can get a 15% off code if you sign up for their emails.

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.

On top, I wore this Banana Republic cotton-hemp cardigan over my white ATM v-neck tee for a chic, monochromatic outfit in shades of white.

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.

My ATM t-shirt is spendy, but the quality is outstanding, and I love the fit and the shape of the v-neck. I sized up to the medium in this tee.

For a more budget-friendly option, I recommend the BR slub cotton-madal v-neck tee or the Caslon rounded neck tee.

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!

  1. Love, Love this outfit on you. One of my all time favorites. I really love those shoes, but I’m shockingly incapable of walking in a heel over about 2 inches.

  2. One of my favorite color combinations to wear in the spring and summer. It’s really a nice sophisticated look. Great pics and you look beautiful.

  3. Love that Banana Republic sweater. In fact, I’m wearing the same one right now, but with black pants and top! I bought it a couple weeks ago based on your recommendation. 🙂

  4. I love this outfit! I have white jeans, white t-shirt, and I have to look at what I have for a cardigan. I must have something that would work. I have taupe wedge sandals that would work to make this outfit. Depending on the weather in early June in North Carolina this might work for our grandson’s first birthday party!

  5. I LOVE this look! And you look so nice in it! I would not think to wear those two neutrals together, but they sure make a beautiful outfit. I hope that if you see a similar styled cardigan on another site, you will let us know. I can visualize that color cardigan going with so many colors and being a great neutral to have in my closet. Have a great day!

  6. This looks beautiful on you! I’ve really been eyeing that purse for a couple of weeks. I don’t own any white pants and won’t, so I won’t be doing a mono white outfit, but I do love how it looks!

  7. Love this outfit on you. Soooo cute. Yes, I would wear white on white now that I see it done like this. Great job.

      1. What is the color name of your cardigan ? I’m going to fully emulate your look … beautiful !

  8. Love the white & beige…very classy looking. As I’ve aged, I’m a flats girl, but a cute beige flat/sandal would look great s well.

    Nippy here in the Texas panhandle today…I’m so ready for spring weather for sure.

  9. My favorite outfit you’ve styled this Spring and has totally inspired my outfit for a girlfriends dinner tomorrow night. Thanks

  10. My favorite outfit you’ve styled this Spring and has totally inspired my outfit for a girlfriends dinner tomorrow night. Thanks

  11. I will join the chorus and say that you look fabulous in this outfit and I definitely will try it. I do need a taupe sweater, but this is a little pricey when I know BR will have another sale soon.
    On another note, I had ordered the pink striped Caslon hoodie and it just arrived today, and I noticed it is now reduced in price, and I was able to get an adjustment. I think I will have to go back and get another color!

  12. Love the column of white with the taupe cardigan sweater! You look terrific. Have been eyeing your taupe hobo purse – it is a classic. We are supposed to get 2 inches of sleet/ snow today…. sigh….. spring is such a tease here. Oh well, we need the moisture to ward off summer fires.

  13. I agree with everyone else. When I first saw this outfit on you I immediately loved it. One of my favourites.

  14. This outfit is so pretty! These light neutrals are my jam for sure, but I also love how comfortable yet pulled together it all looks. I love those shoes but know I just won’t ever reach for heels over flats these days. AND, I am loving your hair a little longer– so pretty! 🙂

  15. Love this outfit you are wearing today, and the shoes are super cute!!
    I have a question, we are trying to plan a vacation this summer, where is it that you go in Maine. I remember your pictures, and it looked so beautiful there.

    1. We vacation on Green Lake – my parents own a place there, as do all of my mom’s siblings. So it’s a family spot for us. But we often take day trips to the coast. Look into Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

  16. Love this!!!! I recently went to a baby showers and were white jeans and a white blouse with a soft pink knitted poncho. I felt so put together and so stylish! The monochromatic is very slimming and looks beautiful with your dark hair! Thank you for keeping me so stylish 💕

  17. Yes, I would wear this outfit! I love monochromatic looks, they are slimming and they just give that effortlessly pulled together vibe. I love white and taupe together. All black and taupe is great for fall. I recently purchased the white ankle jeans from Everlane. A bit pricey but it is so comfy. It is also such good quality that I am able to wear it to work.
    Thanks JoLynne!

  18. I wore this cardigan today to work with a white tee and black pants. I’ve ordered the purse and also recently purchased a BR black dolman sleeve jumpsuit, on sale for under $40! So many great purchases recently thanks to you..the ivory mules (also purchased in black), the black jacket, and the Frye sneakers to name a few. Thank you for the recommendations!
