Tips On Wearing White Outfits
- For starters, invest in a pair of white jeans or chinos. Out of these, you’ll create all-white ensembles by mixing and matching existing wardrobe items.
- The fit is paramount. The cut of your suit will play a significant part in this matter, so be sure that it is on point. It should be well-tailored to your body contour, and so as the shoulders, sleeve lengths, and buttons.
- Plan ahead. To make the most out of it, tailor your white outfit accordingly. Research about the type of party you’re attending. And very careful not to spill your drink when you’re there as white outfits are prone to dirt.
- Don’t go all-out. Wearing all-white doesn’t mean that you have to go full-on. You don’t want to look like a bedsheet. So alternatively, you can incorporate some off-white garments. To have some depth, opt for chalk, ivory, stone, ecru, and other neutral tones. Also, add some flavor without going overboard with contrasting shoes, belts, and accessories.
- Fabric Choice. There are no specific set of rules for styling all-white. So it won’t hurt you to experiment with different textures and fabrics as they are an easy way to balance the scales and avoid the dullness of an outfit.
The Dont’s of Wearing White
- White on white can be overpowering, so do not use white everything. Break up your look with ivory, cream, or off-white if you want to stick to this color.
- Avoid heavily contrasting or odd color choices with your white outfit, e.g., orange, neon green, etc. Instead, keep it neutral.
- Although it may sound ridiculous, it is best to shy away from certain foods, especially if you’re at a formal party, i.e., a wedding. The last thing you want is a red wine stain down your stunning, crisp blazer.
