5 Tips To Remember While Wearing White Dress

With summer in full force , little white dresses are popping up everywhere. These spring and summer staples are quickly replacing their darker counterpart the little black dress in stores and closets everywhere.
While a little white dress can be one of the most versatile pieces to own for warm months, it can also be a bit tricky to wear successfully. The blank canvas it provides can be a little overwhelming.
* Select quality fabrics
To me, the quality of fabric always matters. The quality fabric just feels good and fits right. However, selecting a quality fabric is never more important than with white clothing. Quality fabrics are less likely to be see-through. Give the garment even more bonus points if it is lined.
* Steer clear of clingy fabrics
Furthermore, make sure the fabric you choose isn’t too clingy. Note that wearing a tight, body-con dress in white is very difficult to do. That’s because tight white fabric tends to show every bump and bulge of your body. Remember: summer is all about the easy, breezy style anyway, so embrace free-flowing forms.
* Don’t underestimate what’s underneath
Undergarments build the foundation of an outfit. Choosing the right underpinnings is especially critical with white clothing. Do not wear white undergarments. Instead, opt for skin-toned pieces.
* Consider your closet
Remember, you’re working with a blank canvas with which anything goes. Use all the tools already at your disposal to create your white dress work of art. Chances are that you already have shoes, jewelry, and / or a handbag that will work brilliantly with your white dress!
* Keep it simple
The beauty of white is in its simplicity. So, don’t overwhelm it with accessories. You’ll notice that although my accessory choices were bold, I kept them to just a few key pieces.
