An all-white ensemble isn't just for brides. Anyone can wear white. Wearing white accessories with white clothing makes a striking summer fashion statement - cool, coordinated, and sophisticated.
White's not known as slimming, so petites can use strategies to help; choose semi-fitted dress styles, straight-legged pants, or fluid blouses of drapey fabric. White shoes can make feet look bigger, so if this is a concern, try white shoes with pointed toes or thin strappy sandals, and skip the ankle straps.
You can also tweak an all-white outfit by selecting some metallic accessories, rather than wearing all white accessories. Choose gold metallic accessories for a sun-kissed look, and select silver metallic accessories for a cooler look.
Wear Black and White
Black and white looks modern for summer because the stark contrast of black and white gives this stylish combo a sophisticated look.
There are many ways to combine black and white in fashionable patterns of prints, polka dots, or stripes. If you prefer solid colors in clothing, you can mix it up with a black skirt or jeans and a white top. Black recedes and white advances, so this strategy de-emphasizes hips. Petites who have inverted triangle figure types can minimize the top by selecting a black blouse with a white skirt or pants.
Wear Whites and Brights
Wearing bright colors is a good mood lifter, and since white is a neutral and it's also a summer tradition, combining white with a bright color is a great way to dress for summer. You can look trendy and cool at the same time. Try bright white with one of these colors for an on-trend summer look:
- Bright turquoise
- Electric blue
- Primary yellow
Other bright colors will work with white too, so don't be afraid to wear your favorite brights with white.
