MIA: RAC Shopping Guide: Summer Whites



Call it our affinity for all things crisp and white, the fact that Miami is home or our sheer desire to hold on to every last minute of summer, but the age old fashion rule that bans dressing in white after Labor Day is officially outdated in our book. Because a sleek white wardrobe is not only transitional, it’s essential (think statement accessories, footwear in exotic fabrics and classic poplin shirts).

Here, we’ve included summer whites that transcend seasons: from Dior’s Horlogerie timepiece with a diamond-set bezel and white patent calf strap, to this year’s ‘it’ bag, Mansur Gavriel’s coveted white calf coated bucket bag, Noor Fares’ 18-karat gold earrings dripping in mother of pearl and diamonds and emerging designer Johanna Ortiz’s classic-meets-cool off the shoulder shirt. Happy shopping.
