How to Look White-Hot this Spring and Summer
Once an accent shade, white is now a power player-with style mavens from New York to Paris are breaking out head-to-toe outfits in the must-have hue.
But to truly make white work, you need more than super chic designs. You also need foundation pieces that provide shape and support but are undetectable to the eye. Just about everyone knows you shouldn’t wear black under white, but I’m surprised by how many people don’t realize that you can’t wear white under white.
The top three white trends and how to wear them:
White-Hot Flirty and Flowing Fabrics: Flowing, romantic looks highlight a woman’s femininity. A sought-after style that embodies this trend is an eyelet halter top paired with white miniskirt and fun accessories for a bold, monochromatic look. For those planning to add a pretty, loose-fitting white top to their wardrobe, go for solid support underneath.
White Walking Suit: For work, a white blazer can be paired with to-the-knee walking shorts and a fun, nautical-inspired shirt, platforms and whimsical accessories, such as a polka-dot scarf worn as a headband. The key to making white pants look good is to ensure there are no visible panty lines.
White Dress: Another white-hot casual look is a white dress paired with a sexy silver sandal. The new mod empire waist dress is one popular design. To create a polished silhouette, pair the dress with transparent hosiery, which give legs a better-than-bare look.
