Summer Whites

Fashion is temporary, style is forever.

Yves Saint Laurent

I’ve always loved the simplicity and purity of white. Nothing like the greatest turn-on seeing a chick dressed in a simple white T and blue denims.

Since it’s summer clearance going on now, a few items which are going off for a fraction presents great opportunities to give that cool, casual and fresh look. Some say you would have to be pretty daring to pull it off though I must say that when done in a tasteful manner, pairing your jeans with the white blazer gives a bold spin. A nice balance for our evening dinner parties in our part of the world where folks could either be dressed too formal or too casual, seated on the same table. In short, you’ll miss the chance of looking like a complete dork.

See what I mean? Go for the cotton/linen blend so it will not wrinkle easily. Love the single-button.

A pair of sandals from Aldo will serve me well on my holidays, most of which are by the beach.

I was reading Colossians a few days ago and even Paul have something to say about clothing. You are what you wear.

You’re done with that old life. It’s like a filthy set of ill-fitting clothes you’ve stripped off and put in the fire. Now you’re dressed in a new wardrobe. Every item of your new way of life is custom-made by the Creator, with his label on it. All the old fashions are now obsolete. Words like Jewish and non-Jewish, religious and irreligious, insider and outsider, uncivilized and uncouth, slave and free, mean nothing. From now on everyone is defined by Christ, everyone is included in Christ.

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
