5 Ways To Wear White During Fall
I’m not going to sit here and pretend white is for everyone. It’s an incredibly difficult and scary colour to wear. You’ll probably spill and get it dirty, but that’s okay. It looks extremely fresh and chic when styled correctly, especially during those dark and dreary fall days. The most important thing you can do when looking for a white piece to add to your wardrobe this season, is your instinct and wear what you feel comfortable in. Don’t pay too much attention to “rules” or trends, just wear what you love. Although the anxiety of getting white dirty, is a real fear, today we’re going to talk about tips you can follow to ensure you feel confident in it all day. I promise you, white isn’t as scary as you think. In fact, knowing that there is a chance it’s going to get dirty, takes some of the pressure off wearing it. Today we’re talking about how to “pull off” white all season long.
One of the easiest ways to style white, is to wear it from head-to-toe white. Monochromatic looks take the guesswork out of which colours go together. Although this sounds super scary, all all-white outfit, if you take some pressure off, by knowing its going to get dirty (and that it can be washed), white isn’t really that scary at all. Just be sure to check your booty before leaving the house. You don’t want to be wearing the wrong underwear. As much as you may want to wear white undies, a nude pair is actually best. Same goes for the upper body. Try a nude bra to help create a unified look. The trick to creating a seamless look is to stick with nudes.
The amazing thing about wearing white, you can have fun mixing and matching your metals when it comes to jewelry. You know my fave place when it comes to accessories is Victoria Emerson, not only to they have the best pieces to compliment any outfit, they always have the best sale (on top of their already affordable items). To say I have a slight obsession with their wrap bracelet is the understatement of the year. They just so happen to be having a buy one wrap bracelet, get one free event right now, perfect time to stock up.
Each design is versatile enough to wear with jeans, but sophisticated enough to wear with your classic outfits for the office. These timeless pieces are affordable yet created with the highest of quality to ensure you’ll have them for years to come.
Another thing to keep in mind, is no two whites are ever going to be the same, so don’t stress about matching the colour perfectly. Instead, look to achieve a sleek and modern look with your fabrics. Your tops and bottoms don’t have to be the exact same white, in fact, they don’t even have to be the same material. Having different hues of white, in different fabrics, will help add visual interest to your outfit. This will help ensure you don’t look like you’re wearing some sort of uniform.
If you love white, and the way it complements your complexion, but you’re still afraid to wear it during the cooler months, off-whites, creams and beige will be your best friend. Even though the fashion rule, no white after Labour Day, is decades old, some still don’t feel comfortable wearing it after September, in this case, try it in your accessories. Help polish off your look with a bold statement in your jewelry. Typically, blue jeans call for silver jewelry, but the nice thing about white, any metal or colour goes. Look for pieces that compliment your outfit. This is also an easy way to incorporate white into your fall looks without it having to be in your clothing.
Be sure to look for pieces with a little structure. This could be something as easy as a button-down blouse or a form-fitting dress, but my personal fave is white denim. This is especially nice during the slightly cooler months. The trick is to look for items that aren’t too sheer or flimsy. You want pieces that have some weight and thickness to them. This not only helps hide those lumps and bumps, it also helps ensure you can see your skin underneath. Thicker fabrics, like denim, tend to look and feel more expensive.
