Fashion bloggers have wiped the slate clean this season, opting for all-white looks. This tabula rasa non-color allows textures and proportions to stand out and is the perfect fresh alternative to pretty spring pastels.
5 Ways Chictopians Rock the All-White Look
Mix sporty with sultry by pairing see-through pieces with activewear. Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit styles a mesh knit sweater with a rolled clutch and baggy bermuda shorts. -- Here's some inspiration from TLC to help you perfect this look.
An all-white fitted pants-blouse combo has classy written all over it. Up the elegance even further with details like a hint of lace or an embellished collar. Ashleigh Hutchinson of The Daileigh keeps things fitted and classy with a lace-bib blouse and ankle-length pants. She completes the look with a nude clutch and pumps.

THE NEW POWER SUIT
Strong shoulders (thanks to those trusty shoulder pads) and tapered trousers used to be the go-to "power suit" for businesswomen. The updated version is less about exaggerated proportions and more about mixing relaxed blazers and pants with cool, fitted tanks. When this look is done up in all white, there is no stopping you. Kimberley Pavao (aka KP0ssible) is white hot in a long white blazer with a scoop tank and classic pants.
The quickest way to take a lazy Sunday look into a lux realm? All white. Punctuate the cool with your flyest sneakers or creepers. Dentelle et Fleurs blogger Gabrielle Lacasse opts for a casual look with a denim jacket, tee and tapered pants.
Just for #ChictopiaMEN
Classy -- Gents can work an all-white suit on those hot summer days- and nights, and if you're not wanting to go full white-out, add a plaid button-down shirt to break up the white. Think more Jack White and less Backstreet Boys when styling.
Edgy -- The all-white look can be roughened up (a la Andrew W.K.) when used with ripped denim and sporty elements (See Mikellpetty's look for inspiration).
