How to wear a white dress this summer
More over little black dress because little white dress is the new wardrobe staple this coming summer.
An all white dress is extremely versatile. You can dress it down or glam it up with just a few key accessories. My outfit is a great example of how to jazz up a simple white dress. The accessories play the main role in creating the ethnic glam look.
Wearing a totally white dress or outfit can be a little tricky. Below are a few tips on how to wear all white this summer.
First, pick the right dress for your body type. White is very revealing so the cut of the dress is very important. Make sure it compliments your body shape and skin tone. Generally the darker the skin the brighter white you should opt for and vice versa.
My tan skin tone looks great with a snow white dress like this one. The dress is also a romper, so the super short length works well here since there are the needed shorts underneath.
Second, the material is very important when picking a white dress. Sheer material will show more then you might like. A romper dress like this one is perfect in cotton and creates a lot of breathing in the hot summer weather. Always choose light or skin tone underwear when opting for a white dress.
Finally, the beauty of wearing all white outfit is that you have a free rein in pairing it with almost any color. I paired my dress with an all time favorite shade of mine – cobalt blue. It instantly gave the look the needed pop of color and made a fun statement.
Ethnic jewelry is all the rage this spring/summer. I chose to make my look dramatic, bright and colorful by pairing this blue/red necklace with the low cut dress. The cobalt lace up heels and fringy purse completed this fresh and chic look.
