An Early-Summer Weekend in Ile de Ré
Paris’s annual Dîner en Blanc gave us the inspiration for this simply sophisticated outfit in white. While completely à la mode for you Paris fashionistas, this fresh and refined look is also perfect for an early summer weekend in Ile de Ré, a.k.a. the Hamptons of France. Head-to-toe white is a simple idea with a big impact—the very essence of Parisian style.
Whether you’re taking a stroll on the beach, browsing the shops in one of the island’s 10 villages or sitting in a café enjoying the scenery, you can do no wrong in this outfit. We (and the Parisians!) love white jeans in the summer, especially these cropped jeans by MiH. The beautiful silk-satin top by Rochas is timelessly chic, and its texture adds interest as it contrasts with the denim and the gorgeous double-breasted blazer we’ve chosen by Theyskens’ Theory. The Gucci leather sandals, Reed Krakoff tote and accessories by Ashley Pittman are the perfect finishing touches to this tout en blanc look.
