How To Wear White And Light Colours

How To Wear White And Light Colours

Posted by Sunna Naseer | 19 June 2018 | Magazine, Style & Beauty

During the summer months, our wardrobes transition to lighter colours and lighter fabrics. Particularly during the Wimbledon tennis season, we find ourselves invited to a whole host of parties where whites and light colours are the dress codes of choice.

Wearing all white can seem daunting (and nerve-wracking when worrying about drink spills) but when you get it right, it can look drop-dead-gorgeous. Being one of the hottest colours to be seen in for Spring / Summer 2018, now’s the time to get this look mastered. Plus, wearing white is much like wearing black: it can be paired with any print, colour or texture, making it an extremely versatile addition to your wardrobe.

The trickiest look to style is white on white. To pull this off, either pair two similar fabrics like a silky co-ord or simply pair a plain white piece with another that has a slight pattern or different texture to it. For example, wear white tailored trousers with a sheer or lace white top.

Add a statement accessory like leopard print shoes to inject a bit of personality.

When selecting a white dress for a party, consider your skin tone. Bright white shades look great on dark or tanned skin whereas cream or off-white are better options for paler skin tones.

If you’re not into the all-white look, choose one statement white piece like a skirt or pair of trousers to pair with a delicate top. A lacy nude vest or delicate pastels will work well. Match your shoes to the nude/pastel colour to tie this look together.
