Tips for Rocking White When You’re Scared Of It
Its that time of year, the season of white summer dresses. It know there’s fear of spilling something on it, or that it will be too sheer, but today we’re going to chat about tips you can follow to ensure you feel confitend in wearing this fresh summer shade. I promise you, its not as scary as you think. In fact, knowing that there is a chance its going to get dirty, takes some of the pressure off wearing it. Today I’m bringing new light and guidance on how to pull off white all summer long.
I’m not going to sit here and pretend white is for everyone. Its an incredibly fresh and chic “none colour”, but you need to have confidence when styling it. It doesn’t really matter what you wear, its about the mood you bring with it. The most important thing you can do when looking to style a white dress, is listen to how you’re feeling that day. Don’t look at other people’s style to much, just trust and listen to yourself.
Look for pieces that have structure or a solid foundation. This could be a button-down blouse, skinny jeans or even a form-fitting dress in a thicker material. The key is to look for items that are not too sheer or flimsy. This helps to ensure you won’t see any lumps or bumps. If you are going for a lightweight fabric, make sure it’s paired with a white lining. Again, this just helps it look and feel more expensive.
If you’re wearing head-to-toe white, or white on the bottom, be sure to check your booty before you leave the house. Of course, you don’t want to be wearing underwear in a bold colour, but you also don’t want to be wearing white undies either. The trick for a seamless look, is to stick with nude panties.
Remember that no two whites are ever going to be the same. Don’t stress about matching the colour perfectly when you’re looking to achieve that sleek and modern look. Your tops and bottoms don’t have to be the same white, in fact, they don’t even have to be the same material. Having different hues of white, in different fabrics, will add visual interest to your outfit. This will help ensure you don’t look like you’re wearing some sort of uniform.
