Must-Have Summer White Staples

Miami doesn’t need to follow fashion rules. We lack real seasons, it’s always scorching hot and scattered showers make wearing trendy suede shoes a risky gamble.

Still we like to play along occasionally, like when Memorial Day rolls around, kicking off summer (unofficially) and granting us the right to wear white again. Ready to shed the rainbow wardrobe you’ve been sporting all spring? Here is a look at a few of the staples you need to embrace the summer-white trend.

The White Trouser
Perhaps you’re not ready for all white everything. That’s OK. Louis Vuitton Resort 2016 has that covered with easy-to-wear pairings of colorful tops and crisp white trousers, which work with a myriad of other blouses and styles you probably already own. The slightly wider leg works for a casual sandal, while the heavier fabric keep you from a possible sheer wardrobe malfunction at work. Louis Vuitton, 140 NE 39th Street, 305-573-1366

The Ethereal Caftan
Whether you’re spending the summer gallivanting through the Cote d’Azur or parking yourself on the sands of Miami Beach, a billowy caftan is the ultimate seaside uniform. Emilio Pucci has mastered the art of effortless vacation style with its collection of beachwear caftans, available in both short and maxi lengths. Sure, the label’s whimsical prints are fun and irresistible but we love the versatility of a white style such as this one. Emilio Pucci, 178 NE 39th Street, 305-576-1830

The Sheer Dress
Sometimes see-through is a good thing. Lace, mesh and similarly airy fabrics make the hot summer season just a little more bearable—and Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci gets it. For the label’s Resort 2016 collection, the designer created a beautiful Victorian-style dress with long lace sleeves and a sheer skirt. The combination of maxi dress and soft fabrics make this the perfect summer pairing, especially when worn without a slip.  Givenchy, 106 NE 39th Street, 305-576-6250
