Out with monochromatic. In with achromatic. Or so says the latest trend. Clean up the colour palette in your wardrobe this summer and hold on tight to the whitest of whites— that are also making a splash when it comes to eveningwear! We tell you how to carry it off.
 

Oh so fancy

Oh so fancy

There’s nothing quite like an OTT all-white gown for a fancy soiree. Opt for one with interesting lace detailing at the hem and power shoulders. For that added élan, stash on a metallic belt to cinch the waist or opt for a dainty, vintage brooch.

Suit up

Suit up

Take your cue from luxe suits alá Angelia Jolie on the red carpet. Satin-esque tailored pantsuits that are crisp and sharp. Notch up your look with an embellished clutch and killer strappy stilettos (preferably in black or white).

The whole nine yards

The whole nine yards

We know that a sari never goes out of style and this summer, we’re asking you to ditch the brocade and bling and go for an all white number. Play with textures such as a satin blouse and a flowy, georgette drape with sequin or applique detailing. It’s all the drama you need.

Lace and cutwork

Lace and cutwork

Here’s where edgy meets feminine. Laser cut textures and all lace on white are the trendiest ways to make your evening whites look fab. This looks works for a lazy Sunday brunch or even a bachelorette party. Check all the boxes in your ensemble by using the Lakmé Eyeconic White pencil to pretty up your eyes with the winged eyeliner look.

White play

White play

An all white playsuit is a great way to ring in that dash of fun. To add a dose of sexy, opt for a deep back romper in rich fabrics like satin and georgette that work great for the night. Remember, pair this ensemble with towering gladiator stilettoes or straight up high pumps—your whites will have never looked more powerful!
