Lighten upóit's July! Feeling light begins with wearing white, my favorite color for the warm weather I'm more than ready to welcome. After a spring that took its own sweet time to arrive, I'm kicking my winter wardrobe to the curb (at least temporarily).
I'm keeping my motorcycle jacket within arm's reach because a great one transcends time and continues to be relevant, giving a rebellious rocker attitude to summer style. And I'm anxiously anticipating Ziggy Stardust/Glam Rock references as the fall season unfolds.
But for this summer, what's "in" are white sneakers. I find them impossibly chic with everything! Worn with sartorial suiting and definitely with denimóbright white (obsessed!), or distressed and destroyed. At the recent CFDA Fashion Awards in New York, I found white sneakers were the perfect foil for my black-tie fashion statement when paired with Gucci pajama pants and a velvet tuxedo jacket.
Not only for him, also perfect for heróthe gender-blended genius of the white sneaker is perfect with summer's maxis and minis, and gives a thrill to a feminine dress with lace and frill. If ever there was fashion footwear that literally goes with everything, it's the sneaker! Well, maybe not a ball gown, but then again, hmmm...
And since it's July, my color story is inspired by Old Glory, so I'm adding bold blues and Confident Reds to my enlightened white summer wardrobe. So lighten your spirit, lighten your look, and embrace the warm weather with casual cool!
