50 shades of white – The ultimate inspiration guide on how to wear white!

50 ways to wear white

I’m a big believer of white for both summer AND winter. I find it just the most beautiful mixing color which will give you a nice, fresh and clean look.

To prove that I’m right I challenged you all to wear white. Many of you responded and proved that I’m right! I’m sure you will agree that all of these women look absolutely fabulous.

If you have resisted wearing white, I hope you will get so much inspiration from all these looks, that you will give it a go yourself. You are still welcome to show us all your white looks by uploading it in the style forum. You could leave a comment below this article with a direct link to your upload in the style forum so that we can get a complete overlook of all white looks in one place!

Now without any further ado, let’s admire all the beautiful white inspired looks!

This is so exciting! All the interpretations of whites! There is no limit!
Thanks, for including my pictures. You are inspiring and challenging us to endless possibilities!


3 Rebecca

Some fabulous looks for wearing white. In NYC the main wardrobe color is black. I tend to feel that white requires tons of care and is not city friendly. After seeing how great it looks though, I will have to try to incorporate more white into my wardrobe.


4 Sylvia

The city needs more white!

Rebecca, my closet is almost black, with a lot of white blouses. I find white so easy in terms of care. Picture this: the white top Im wearing in these pictures, once had half glass of red wine on it! 😉 and it still here!


6 Annette

I love all white outfits and hope summer will finally arrive here.
Fab ladies!

All the ladies featured did a great job with this challenge! I rarely wear all white so this was a real challenge for me.



10 Greetje

Well this was easy, wasn’t it? You got so much respons and all ladies look so good. Really a very good portrait of what you can do with white.
Thanks for including me and I will do my best to send you better quality photos next challenge. (Still learning, but getting there.)


11 Sylvia

Your photos are getting better all the time. Also you dont’ have to compress the images before sending them to me. That way I get the highest possible quality before optimising them myself. A good way to share your photos is Dropbox!


12 Mary Anne

As a newbie here who is tired of glossy magazine styles, I am really inspired by all the lovely personal creativity in all these photos. Thank you to all for sharing. Now to the closet to see if I am up for a dress challenge.. : )


13 Sylvia

Thanks Mary Anne. I really hope you join us next time!

Absolutely love those t-strap mary janes! I live in a warmer climate so I love to see the white pants and nude pump look. I have been wearing these wedges but want to switch my look up for fall. You’ve given me great ideas.
