We think of it as “easy” but white isn’t actually that simple to carry off and done wrong can look tacky. because at the end of the day, it’s more about creating a harmonious, balanced look than it is about “rules”.f you are well-balanced in your choices of clothing, you will be confident in your look and it will show from your head to your toe! Here are some ideas on how you can wear white this summer without looking like a hot mess. Also I hate the rule White after Labor Day rule…never applies to me. Just wear what color when you want no matter what time of year it is. Also some of my top rules:
1.Choose a simple white shirt-inspired tops and dresses that are white and team with neons, florals and other bright to bring it to life. I love white but my fave is when white is paired up with some pops of color.
2. A crisp, white blazer can make just about every outfit look polished. But make sure it fits your personality because you want to Avoid PTA-meeting style. So if it’s rocked with a blouse or a t shirt just make sure it’s you shinning through the blazer.
3.Stay away from White shinny shoes….this is a no no in my book. They look cheap and can show everything from spills to scuff marks and looks like you just picked them up from the DI and should have been left there. Say no to white shiny shoes this spring.
4.A great-fitting pair of white jeans is a summer staple. You can wear them with simple style. But I like to say if tight is not better for your body style then go for the cute white boyfriends and rock with a wedge or heel to make your leg look longer and leaner. Only wear tight white skinnys if you have the legs if not then go for the boyfriends because they complement the areas you are not thrilled about. Also layer around your mid sections to balance our the white pants. To much white can be a bit overwhelming if you’re not use to wearing it. So start off simple. .
5.Afraid of white? Then add some lace. Lace in white can be added anywhere and mostly in a dress. There are a million reasons a white, lace dress is a brilliant buy: It never goes out of style, you can dress it up or dress it down, it’s sexy but still demure…the list goes on. Opt for shoes that complement the dress, but aren’t too matchy—white on white is a bad idea here.
6.If you have a triangular body line, you can wear white bottoms, but you will want to make sure that your tops are at an appropriate length, shape and style so it draws the eye upward and not to your widest part on her body (hips). Accessories, necklines and shoes are particularly important to a triangularly shaped body when wearing not just white but also lighter colors on the bottom.
7.White just not for you at all in now way?? Go for the white accessories or bathing suit. Bold accessories are so in right now and way is better than just going for the white bold necklaces? I love that. Some people just hate white and that is ok. Remember staying true to yourself is what is so important. So from there just remember if you hate white go for some white rings, necklaces, bags, or just anything that you want to rock to feel your best. Rules are made to be broken right?
8. Don’t wear white near your face if you are super tired and have those horrid black circles because it only makes you look way more washed out and highlighted those circles way to much. It’s almost like putting a sign on your back that says I am so tired and not ready for day light. Reflects your flaws.
9. Remember where you are putting white. If you don’t like your hips don’t wear white pants and a short top because then it’s going to highlight your hips. What ever your flaws are wear those deeper richer colors and then highlight the better parts of yourself with white. Very Very important tip #9.
10. Also last but not least. If you are going to pick some underwear to wear please please stick to nude only!! White and other colors just give you lines and color that you don’t want happening. Looks like you don’t have a mirror at home so please please invest in some nude bras and underwear.
Thanks and wear your white this summer with caution and ohhhh have a fun summer!!
