    I’ll Have What She’s Having: A summer romance with my dry cleaner

    White is definitely on trend for summer. But I have to admit a slow love to ditch my go-to black beyond white t-shirts, jeans, sneakers, and classic, crisp white shirts (follow the links for style tips).

    Maybe it was last week in the California sunshine where I lost count on the plethora of white jeans,  but these Cannes Do Chic snaps certainly make the case for adding something white to your summer wardrobe.

    My favorite red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival  offers plenty of styling inspiration for every occasion by way of (clockwise) Cate Blanchett in a Giorgio Armani white suit, Chrystele Saint Louis Augustin in a midriff-baring bralette and high waist flares (so much prettier than a jumpsuit), Zoe Kravitz in a simple 60s above the knee sheath, Charlotte Le Bon in a chiffon Grecian gown, Ronney Mara in a lacy fit and flare dress, and Isabelle Hubert also in a fit and flare above the knee dress.

    Style Tip: When wearing white fit really counts. So avoid anything too snug or droopy. If you feel a bit uncomfortable in white, try pairing a white bottom with a longer top or tush covering jacket.

    Keep to flesh-colored undies but there is something French Chic sexy about purposely wearing a black bra under a classic white shirt. Just a thought.

    Are you into the allure of summer white?
