Symbol of freshness, lightness, purity, feminity, elegance and softness, white color is a modern and timeless color that can be worn again and again, even in a cold season.

And, if pairing a white top with a white pair of jeans is really easy to achieve, dressing traps and faux-pas are lurking in the shadows…

You don’t want to look like a nurse or a doctor neither being taken for the bride!

 

1/ Prefer shades of whites to « all-in-plain-white »

When mixing different shades of whites, it will be easier to enhance your different clothes. You’ll get a more « readable » outfit. You can use:

off white + white,

light beige + white,

ivory white + white, etc.

2/ Mix different fabrics

Mixing different types of fabrics, as cotton, linen, light wool, silk or polyester will instantly help you to give more style to your outfit.

3/ Mix different styles

To avoid too much strictness, the « white coat effect » or the bridal syndrome, you need to break the codes and mix styles, as:

feminine + masculine

sneakers with formal clothes

jewels sandals with a short or a pair of jeans, etc.

4/ Go for layerings

If the weather is not too hot and, if it fits your silhouette, you can easily play with layers to add some volume and character to your outfit.

White fabrics happen to be very transparent sometimes. In that case, add a nude or a white camisole under your top; a nude or white underwear skirt under your dress.

 

5/ Then, definitively avoid

– Too stretched fabrics or tight clothes, unless you can wear something fluid and elegant on it

– White accessories: with your all-in-white clothes, they would just disappear.

If you want to stay in clear colors, prefer them in nude beige, pale pink, light grey… But camel, orange, yellow, green, red, navy blue, black… in fact, all colors are matching white!

And most important: avoid white shoes in leather (except for sneakers) same for white leather bags: definitively a NO GO! Always looking poor, unelegant or too show-off.

(and of course, forget the white color block when you attend a wedding. Unless this is yours! ;) )
