THE INTERSECTION: White out

by Paul Julch in


Clean, simple and timelessly chic, white-on-white always looks fresh.  Whether it's a pristine livingroom, vintage-chic bathroom or classic sheath dress, white continually feels elegant and modern.   Interiors inspire fashion, and vice versa, so check out below for five of-the-moment looks inspired by five spectacular white rooms - and then grab your whites and get ready for summer!

SHINE ON

Take your cues from a bathroom of marble and mirrors.  A flirty sequined skirt and shiny metallic heels get toughened up with an oversized vest and leather link bracelet.  Add a man's style watch and some silver chandelier earrings and head out for a night on the town.

GO FOR THE GOLD

A yellow, gold and white livingroom inspires an easy Sunday brunch look.  Gold studded sandals add rocker-shine to a crochet dress and sleek bomber.  Grab a stack of rose gold bracelets and some shades and have brunch al fresco.

SIMPLY BLACK AND WHITE

Classic black and white (with brown accents) is always chic, decorating at home or dressing for work.  Juxtapose a white sheath dress with black heels, a tortoise cuff, and a colorblock statement bag.  An attention-getting ring ensures that it's not all business.
