Dare to wear: Double white

2016-12-14 06:03

White on white… it’s a vibe. It can be intimidating – there’s the risk of food (or wine) mishaps and then there’s finding the right fit. While we can’t help with beverage mishaps, we suggest wearing a white dress. It’s an easy way to find a flattering fit and nail the all-white trend this summer.

Here are our top tips for killing it in white:

·         Don’t be afraid to double up or repeat white in your shoes or accessories. Worried your monotone look will be boring? Combine different textures or break it up with metallic accessories.

·         When doubling up white make sure your whites match up – combining ivory and white is not a vibe!

·         White and sheer work so well together. Look for dresses with transparent panels to flash a bit of skin.

·         Add some shimmer. Shades of metallic are the perfect complement to white especially when you want to glam up your daytime look for the evening.

·         Do your hair and make-up first or better yet put your kimono on over your dress. You know what doesn’t look good with white? Flecks of powder or foundation!
