The Little White Dress

Brighten up your wardrobe and your look this summer, by wearing white. I love the look of an all white outfit, it looks crisp and super chic on a sunny day and at night, you'll stand out among all the ladies who are robed in black. White is a safe way to go if you want something different but feel uncertain about bright colors.

White makes your skin tone look warmer and more golden, and though I am also partial to ivory and cream items, I encourage you to seek out standard white shade. You can accessorize with color, but bold accessories in gold, silver and black can look fabulous when set against a white outfit. Depending on the style and cut of the dress you may not need to accessorize much at all.

I think white is great for a night out on the town, but I've also worn all white to the office before and it's great for just casual outings too.

I've attended a couple events in white cocktail dresses, here's one from last summer:

I don't abide by too many style rules, like forgoing white after Labor Day, but I have to say I still fall on the side of tradition when it comes to wearing all white to a wedding, which I feel is a don't (unless it's a special request by the bride). And white stockings are a definite no-no, unless perhaps you are the bride, otherwise stick to bare legs.

If you haven't before, maybe now you'll consider a white frock for your next picnic, event or just as a refreshing option for your Monday through Friday work wardrobe.
