Summer White-Out

Most of the old fashion rules have fallen by the wayside. Yet Memorial Day always seems to mark the time we all have carte blanche to start wearing summery white clothing.  

Doing so is a big trend for summer 2014, and from headband to toe-baring sandals. The white-on-white look was on all the runways, with Balenciaga, Nina Ricci and Calvin Klein taking it sheer and flowing. Even nails are bathed in this snowy hue this season.

In home decorating, all-white kitchens -- from glossy cabinets to subway tile backsplashes to pristine marble countertops -- are still a hit with homeowners. And for many this non-color predominates in the rest of the interior. Judging from what folks show online, white walls are not just for renters or those with tiny spaces. Many even drape their windows and furniture with more white!

The notes attached to the all-white interiors pinned or posted often refer to “my dream room” or “future space.” Such a retreat might be just what we all need now. The new Moon on May 28 gives the urge to try something new. In Gemini, it’s all about the buzz, being in-the-know.

But this lunation makes a square aspect to mystical Neptune in Pisces. It adds some confusion to the Gemini busy-ness. We can all be very active over the next weeks, yet unfocused and unsure if we’re really getting anywhere. Some of us will feel restless and jumpy for no reason.

Perhaps we want to wear or decorate with white as an antidote. Color therapists say this color is all about trying to create time and space for reflection, uncluttered with the mundane. Wearing or living with it is thought to denote purity of emotions and spirit -- a very Neptunian aspiration.

But overdoing it with white can lead to a sense of isolation and hinder your ability to take action and make decisions.

I think white is best treated like any neutral color—as a backdrop for other colors. Against it play accents in hues that add personality and pizzazz to your home decor and wardrobe. Better yet, only go with the ones you really love and that make you happy. With Venus now in Taurus, make sure whatever you choose totally thrills your senses.
