The Craze: Tailored White

White has always been known to be a color reserved for Spring and Summer. As seen in this year’s Spring 2012 collections, many designers chose to incorporate neatly tailored, clean white looks. In many cases white can represent purity and simplicity and by pairing highly tailored designs with fresh white, designers can create an ultra chic, clean look.

For Jill Sander’s Spring 2012 collection, high collars were combined with tight fitting tailored dresses and skirts. This gave the collection a very modern, elegant look. Karl Lagerfeld, like other designers, also included elegant all white pieces into the Spring 2012 collection for Chanel. The beginning of his collection was reserved for entirely white designs. This decision allowed his collection to transform throughout the show starting out with simplified white designs and finishing with dazzling highly embellished pieces.

To achieve this sleek modern look try pairing a tailored top with a little flare of embellishment and tight white skinny jeans. The all white look also adds room to play with colorful accessories so let your imagination run wild.
