I don’t usually wear lots of white clothes. Me and all-white-looks are not the best fit either. The reason behind it is not because I dislike white, but rather the consequence of being the clumsiest person ever born. This means my white clothes usually stay white for approximately 2 seconds. However, I desperately wanted to shoot this look, because I think it’s pretty cool. This meant I had to keep it clean for a few hours. Do you think I made it? 🙂
I’m proud to announce I made it to stay clean for 3,5 hours before the shoot and a few hours afterwards. I even had a breakfast and a few coffees without ruining the whiteness of my sweater, jeans and shoes. And it wasn’t an easy challenge, believe me. 🙂

White is boring?
Usually, all-white-looks appear way too polished if you ask me. Very often, when I see people walking around in their whites, I get the impression it took them ages to get dressed up. They look way too perfect in a way. No twist. Nothing. The reason: White looks easily seem extremely boring, monochrome and sterile (there is a reason why doctors wear white).
How to: All-white-look a la Timo
Wanna wear all-white and still look cool and not overdressed? You don’t need much to ensure a laidback appearance and pull off the perfect street-style-look. To do so, go for relaxed styles with loose silhouettes. For my style, I opted for an oversized sweater and a pair of wide-leg jeans. Then, I completed my look with simple white sneakers and an edgy handbag. The result: A comfortable and super chic outfit for every day.

Still wanna add some color?
If you desperately want to add some color to your monochrome look, you can always go for a colorful jacket. You can go for a neon raincoat if you want to be en vogue in 2019. It’s meant to be one of the hottest trends this year. Why not try it out? I actually like it a lot. What do you think?
