Bianca Jagger Makes a Strong Case for Summer Whites

Bianca Jagger Makes a Strong Case for Summer Whites

My sincere apologies that it's been quiet around here! x, n

In summer, style is all about understanding the power of simplicity in dress. There are lessons here that apply year round, actually, but in summer, with fewer layers to contend with, and a generally fuss-free spirit in the air, simplicity is a particularly vital element of good style. 

So, what constitutes simplicity? As a rule, I think clean lines, monochrome looks, wafting dresses, a deliberate focus on fit, and attention paid to small details, like a pop of color courtesy of red lipstick or a gold bangle. But it is summer whites that represent the pinnacle of the season's sartorial simplicity. Enter 70s style maven Bianca Jagger, and her multifarious mastery of the summer white ensemble.

Nary an accessory in site, here, it's all about the white jumpsuit. Painted nails and a simple gold pinky ring finish off this look.

Bianca accented this lustrous white satin in a deep v with a white floral headpiece and a simple gold bangle.

...And then effortlessly topped this off-the-shoulder white ruffled dress with a summer hat.

There's so much goodness here, I don't even know where to start. This all-in white look (down to the wedges!) gets an unexpected hint of formality from the buttoned shirt and slim bow at the neck, making it like a master class in the fundamentals of outfit composition.

Here she is at Studio 54 wearing a v-neck jumpsuit with a simple gold necklace, structural bangles on both arms, and what appears to be a fur boa, ostensibly suggesting this outfit was not assembled in summer. Inspiration taken nonetheless.

Extremely important loose-fitting white dress wafting moment noted. Plus, Mick, which makes the whole thing. So. Much. Better.

And, last but not least, this Grecian wonder of an ensemble, complete with a gold headpiece and what appear to be intertwined braided belts with tassels. Summer white, simply perfected.
