Is your dose of white ready for the ‘I’ Day? Here are a few tips to wear your white right!
i) Make your White Skirt a Full Skirt
To start, put away your pencil skirts in favor of one that’s full and white. Pair it with a skinny neutral belt and loose tank blouse, or try a lightweight skirt.
ii) Shoe off Sheer
For a full-out sheer look, layer a white sheer top over a tube top. For a more attainable approach, wear a sheer sleeved white dress of a chick shirt.
iii) Wear it tailored
Tailor cut white jackets and pants look great. Wear tailored white top-to-bottom, or mix and match your separates to vary your outfit options.
iv) Add some Shine with Metallics
Turn a casual outfit into something party-worthy with shades of metallic, especially silver. Tuck a white blouse into a silver and white printed skirt or junk up a lot of silver jewelry. You’re sure to wear a chic fusion look.
v) Layer it on
White looks just as good as a single item as it does on an entire outfit. Layer white upon white upon white and finished the look with white hair accessories, a white purse and white shoes. Think it’s too much? Not around this time. Try it on!
