Bright summer whites

Now that summer is (almost) officially here, it’s safe to break out your best and brightest summer whites. In this installment of Pretty Little Things (where we bring you the cutest online finds), we source some ultra-cute styles in crisp summer white.

Layered eyelet blouse

Feminine, elegant and perfect for hot summer days, we love this sleeveless top featuring a lovely six-fold tier of ruffles and lace (, $78). Not only is it adorable, it’s versatile, too. Pair with anything from cut-offs or this season’s must-have red or coral jeans, to a flowing maxi skirt and gladiator sandals.

Cropped white denim

While you may not want to wear white pants in the dead of winter, summer calls for a lighter take on style. Brighten up your look with a pair of cropped matchstick jeans that hit just above the ankle, with just a hint of stretch (, $98). Create a simple, summer look by pairing with a bold racerback tank and wedge sandals.

Midi dress

Nothing says summer quite like an effortlessly chic dress, and we’re partial to this one in a midi length cut with a sweetheart neckline, double shoulder straps and a flared skirt with pleated detailing (, $56). We particularly like the crossover design at the back that gives this piece some elegance. Pair with simple accessories and angled strap heels.

Espadrille wedge

One of the best things about summer is the shoes. We love sandals and getting out of socks and shoes is something we look forward to as soon as the snow starts to melt. Step out in a pair of these Seychelles espadrille wedge sandals with grosgrain ribbon wrap tie around the ankle (, $70). Wear these with maxi dresses, tailored shorts and knee-length skirts.

Tote bag

Summer means lots of day trips, going from the office to post-work patio drinks and otherwise needing a purse full of essentials that can take you from day to night. Carry everything you need in this large but elegant tote (, $198). Easy to carry and stylishly structured, this bag also features multiple pockets for easy organization.

Dress up any outfit with a cute cuff in summer white. We have our eye on this one in white leather and the surprise of a sparkling Swarovski crystal in the center (, $180). While it might be on the pricey side, we love how versatile it is and how great it will look with anything from shorts and T-shirts to skirts and dresses.
