Editorial | White on White










The contrast between the clean clothes and the run down background makes the clothes pop.  

White can sometimes be a tricky colour to pull off as it be so clinical. This editorial is the perfect illustration of what my ideal white on white casual outfits would look like. I am craving the first jumper with the loose slit wool at the side, they look like gills...

It pains me to know that if I had these outfits in my wardrobe, the probability of me keeping the garments white for more than 0.75 seconds is about 0.00001%. In simple terms: White = Not white almost immediately. This is no fault of my own... its the... 

"White Sneaker/Trainers Disorder"
It's quite a common disorder amongst guys I find. This is how it is diagnosed:

1) Someone buys new sneakers/trainers 
2) Brand new sneakers/trainers are worn out
3) Person meets up with friends
4) Friends decide that they are too clean
5) "Friends" rough them up

It's a bit like the smart well polished guy in prison. You just know he will get beaten up.

  2. I do agree that white on white can be tricky, I think part of the it is that you should wear cream, not actual white (like in the pictures).

  21. Ughhh I love white on white so much, but am pretty afraid about trying it since I'm sure I can't pull it off. It's like I collect stains or something! Anyway, I like the way you write - it's very fun :)
