Fashion Friday: White Linen Night

It’s about as Southern as it gets.  Each August, New Orleans socialites don their whitest linen suits and skirts to sip sazeracs and peruse downtown art galleries.  In true New Orleans style, Whitney White Linen Night is no muss, no fuss and quickly transforms from a stuffy affair into block party overflowing with conversation and cocktails.

After the festivities?  Dirty Linen Night the following weekend.

I’ve been searching for outfit inspiration in anticipation of the annual event.  Instead of a dress or skirt suit, I’m updating my look with crisp white shorts, platform wedges and a bow-detail blouse.  Oversized shades and gold jewelry will finish off the ensemble.

Want to achieve the same look?  When wearing white on white, don’t be afraid to mix textures.  As for accessories, camel and gold are a no-fail, classic combination.  And stick with chardonnay.  Pinot is downright dangerous.
