Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

From dresses to shoes, bags and pants, white-on-white could be found in almost every major runway show for SS2013. Almost in rebellion to the over-the-top neon influx of SS12, this season's white-on-white trend is a clean, minimal, and subdued way to get back to basics. By keeping white as the dominate element in an outfit, other interesting, and more complex, details of clothing are able to be explored such as mixed textures, fabric manipulation and unique silhouette aspects. That, and it has the side effect of chicly drawing attention to the skin.

Whether done in small doses or all out, white-on-white brings a fresh perspective to dressing for the warmer months.
