TIPS : HOW TO WEAR IT
The striking look of crisp white on white may be a huge trend right now but let's face it this look will never go out of style.  With labour day weekend in effect I thought it would only be appropriate to squeeze in the white trend before it's no longer acceptable to wear it again until next Spring - ya right!  Who made up that silly rule anyway?  It's surely not one I follow!  Anyway I guess there are two ways I would wear white on white.  First, if you are going to an event where you are looking to stand out there is nothing more classic that sticking to complete whites.  That's right head to toe.  With this rule I would like to make the exception that above in Carolina from Fashion Squads example, I love that her clutch does include a very pale grey that doesn't distract in the least bit from her all white look.  Secondly, if you are wearing white on white just for a casual to semi-dressy look please do add bits of colour.  I know bright colours have been fun to play with this season but I would lean toward incorporating pastels to finish off your outfit.  Combining creams with blush, light blues or greens and silver accents will turn your outfit into playful chic.
