It appears as though we all need to add a few all-white outfits to our capsule wardrobes, because not only are they everywhere right now, but they also just ooze 'Quiet Luxury.'

Yep, when it comes to fashion, there are two rules universally recognized: white and black pieces go with everything. And while it's already thoroughly proven that nothing beats a LBD or all-black outfit in the sophistication department, a case is also building for a crisp, monochromatic white ensemble—even with fall just around the corner.

In fact, we've spotted a ton of celebs rocking full, coordinating white looks. So, here's how to channel this clean and chic vibe—with budget-friendly pieces that will fit seamlessly with the rest of your closet staples.

MIL's picks of white outfit staples and inspo

When it comes to building a minimalist capsule closet, a white t-shirt, tank and button-up are usually the first items to shop for, because they're such essential basics that pair perfectly with everything—from jeans to skirts. Now, consider pairing your white tees with a fresh pair of white pants or jeans...

The combo of two white pieces, or a white dress for instance, just gives us 'Italian Girl', meets 'coastal grandmother' vibes and who doesn't want that? It's elegant, simple and just infallible.

And as for inspo, we're seen everyone from Kendall and Kylie Jenner, to Lori Harvey Emma Chamberlain, Laura Harrier and most recently, Olivia Rodrigo, all rocking solely the neutral shade.

An all-white fit is also something we've noticed Sofia Richie favoring lately, which is very telling as she's known for her 'Quiet Luxury' style.

How to style white outfits

The beauty of white pieces is that they can be dressed both up and down. You can easily build a chic, summertime look with an ivory dress, heels and a mini bag for instance, or a casual, 'coffee date' vibe, with a white tank top, white linen pants and some Adidas Samba sneakers.

Accessories are also your best friend. While we concede it can feel a bit bland to just wear an all-white look, adding in a colorful bag or shoe, along with some gold huggie hoops and a pair of black sunglasses can really help to elevate your fit.

If you're new to a monochromatic look, we'd suggest starting with a white t-shirt and jeans, before layering them with your fave accessories. Alternatively, you could opt for a white maxi dress for a minimal-effort but classy look. Then spray on a few spritzes of these 'Quiet Luxury' perfumes and you're ready to turn heads!
