TRENDS | Summer Whites

What a perfect day here is sun shiny Vancouver to talk about the color "WHITE" for summer. (Sunshine in Vancouver is hard to come by, so we take full advantage when it's here). Yes, white as a color or shall I say "non-color" is difficult to wear. I for one, tend to spill and get myself dirty when I am wearing anything white. (Ask my boyfriend, it's true, I have to wear a bib while eating). But I still love wearing white. It's looks minimal, crisp, fresh, clean and it stand outs. Here are some of the looks and pieces I'm coveting from street to runway this Spring-Summer 2013.  

1. From the runway - Modern and structured and using white as a base and a trim, Balenciaga reveals its Spring-Summer 2013 campaign which features fashion models Kremi Otashliyska, Kirstin Liljegren and Sam Rollinson. The campaign was shot by fashion photographer Steven Meisel, {main image}. New Balenciaga Creative Director, Alexander Wang also showed a lot of monochromatic whites for his own collection this Spring-Summer 2013, {image below}.

1. Zara Motocycle Jacket, $159 - Thanks to some pre-online shopping perk, I snagged this awesome white moto jacket from Zara. Great texture and longer length which makes for a great throw on piece. I'm super excited that Zara is now shipping to Canada. Check out pictures of purchases from Canadian fans here ---> #DearCanada. Photos by Street Style Photographer, StyleQuotient.

2. Shoe Mint, $79.98 - Are you a Shoe Mint member yet? I don't buy very often but when I see the right item, I plunge. These Wang-esque style white sandal heels are trend right and don't hurt the wallet too badly.

3. Joe Fresh Leather School Bag, $99 - Toss aside your boring black messenger bag and give this one a try. It's called the "School Bag" but honestly, I think it could be used for any day to day occasion.  It fits all the necessities like an iPad, note pads and magazines.
