Summer Outfits Lookbook 2014- featuring White

So I've had a lot of people requesting a new YouTube video from me...I admit it's been forever! I got pretty demotivated with making videos since it's pretty time-consuming, but I think I'll make a new video every now and then although on a more spread-out schedule. I did a new Lookbook video for Summer 2014 for those in the Northern hemisphere soaking up the warm summer rays...featuring the colour white in particular!
White is one of my favourite neutral colours to wear for hot weather , because it's so fresh and absorbs less heat, keeping you cool! There are many ways to incorporate white into your summer wardrobe.You can check out the video for this blog post on my YouTube channel here: http://youtu.be/_kc0Nvdc5mA

1. White crop top
Crop top with floral straps: Tobi.com
Blue lace shorts: c/o Purbelle (link here-currently sold out)
Cardigan: Cotton On
Heels: goJane
Clutch bag: New Look
Key necklace: c/o Rings and Tings (link here)

I'm fanatic about crop tops, in case it wasn't obvious enough haha! Crop tops are a summer staple in my opinion, and they look especially cute with high-waisted bottoms like shorts or skirts. I've always found that a cropped top together with flared shorts (like the ones I'm wearing) will help create a really flattering illusion of a small, cinched in waist with lovely wide hips.

 I've been amassing a bit of a collection of crop tops especially in white, because it's just such a versatile colour that will pair well with anything. I seem to have bought most of my crop tops from Tobi.com, which always has really affordable ones in a huge range of cute designs.

I also got these high-waisted electric blue shorts from Purbelle.com, a Singapore-based online boutique. I love the cute detailing on the side with the lace. The shorts are such a bright and fun pop of colour, so I kept the rest of the outfit and accessories in simple neutral tones.

I usually prefer to balance out looks including cropped tops and shorts with some baggy form of outerwear, to tone it down and make it look more casual. I'm wearing a knit cardigan from Cotton On with batwing sleeves here, but for more hot days a chiffon lightweight kimono will do the trick.

2. White bag
White quilted clutch bag: Forever New
Heart back dress: c/o Ami ClubWear (link here-currently out of stock)
Dip dye blazer: Mink Pink
Mint heels: Lulu's
You can also incorporate white in a bag, for a fresh-looking accessory! I bought this one recently on sale from Forever New, and the quilted design always gives outfits a touch of class. To complement the fresh summer vibe, I wore aquamarine and apple green shades in my outfit. This dip dye blazer is from Mink Pink and I love the fresh feel of the minty gradient.

The dress is from Ami Club Wear, and has a really simple design so you can easily pair it with different types of outerwear or accessorise it up. It also has this adorable heart cut-out back detail, which you can check out in the video! It also came with a thin white bow belt you can detach....or even add it to your other outfits!

Since mint green is one of my favourite shades and features a lot in my wardrobe...I thought I was in dire need of mint green heels as well to complement my clothes! I bought these mint green strappy heels from Lulus around the beginning of this year, and this is the first time I'm taking them out. They're really comfortable and they look cuter up close.
3. White dress
White dress with asymmetric cut: c/o The Design Closets (link here)
Earrings: c/o Persunmall (link here)
Starfish necklace: c/o Light in the Box (link here)
White heels: GoJane
Envelope clutch: Dorothy Perkins

Another great way to wear white in the summer, is on a tight-fitted sexy white dress! This dress is from the Design Closets, and the double strap design and asymmetric cut creates a really crisp and modern look. Since it's white, you can easily pull this dress out for a classy daytime function as well as going out to a party at night.

 I wore a pair of strappy heels again from GoJane, this time in white to match the dress. I also paired the outfit with silver accessories, because there's always something about the combination of silver and white that has a really cool and fresh look. The envelope glitter clutch is from Dorothy Perkins, and I also wore this really simple but dainty starfish necklace from Light in the Box (at the total steal of only $2!)


4. White lace top
Crochet off-shoulder top: c/o Light in the Box (link here)
Crochet shorts: c/o The Stage Walk
Fringe bag: Brandy Melville
Boots: Nine West

Another white favourite for summer, is definitely crochet/lace! Crochet has such a hot beachy summer vibe to it, and in this outfit I'm wearing both an off-shoulder crochet top, as well as these denim shorts with a floral crochet overlay. One of the best things about crochet is that although there's a lot of intricate detail, it's kind of subtle enough to allow you to wear even double crochet, like how I'm doing here!

To me crochet always has a bit of a boho chic look to it, so I like to pair with complementing accessories like this tan fringe bag from Brandy Melville, and these taupe-coloured ankle boots from Nine West. The combination is kind of festival-inspired, but a more casual and wearable one.


I hope you guys liked this video on Summer Outfits featuring the colour white! Is there anything else you guys want me to do a blog post or video on? Although as I mentioned in the beginning I won't really have time to shoot out constant videos, but I'll try my best! :) The link to this video on my Youtube channel is here: http://youtu.be/_kc0Nvdc5mA.

  17. Thanks for this post. Great tips! I really struggle with summer dressing and sometimes feel that I wear the same thing all year round but with fewer layers!! The UK summers have not been that great recently so I could get away with it but it would be nice to have some lovely outfits prepared for when we do get some warm weather. I love your use of white and am inspired to have a go at using more white especially trousers. I also like to wear dresses in the summer.UpdateLand
