Warm-weather whites get their moment in the sun.

It’s an annual occurrence: Temperatures soar and the whites come out. Keep yours craveworthy by paying particular attention to the fabric’s texture. Feel-good whites like crochet, eyelet and the supplest of leathers all have a fab texture factor that adds interest to an otherwise basic hue. Chic, antique-inspired fabrics‰ÛÓwhite linen, lace and muslin‰ÛÓall complement a summer glow and read oh-so-subtly sexy when shown in near-transparent renditions. Even silk, which hasn’t been on the radar in some time, made a peek-a-boo appearance at Catherine Malandrino in the form of white wide-leg trousers, perfect for lounging on a boat off the coast of Saint-Tropez or any other exotic destination. But no matter where you go or which interpretation of the trend you choose, one thing is certain: White has never felt so good.
