Get fresh for summer with a white dress
Nothing says summer like a white dress! As soon as the sun's shining, it's time to take off those tights, slip into a pair of sandals, and throw on some white clothes. This versatile colour is ideal for sunny days! In the cloudy, dark winter months white can make you look quite pale, but when the sun comes out, it really makes your complexion pop – especially if you've got naturally dark skin, or you're rocking a tan. You'll find dresses of all different cuts available in white, ready to accessorise to add your own personal twist. Let's take a look at some of the best styles out there!
Keep it casual with white dresses by day
A white shirt dress is a tried and tested item that can take you from work to the weekend in a blink of an eye. You could add a slim belt in another colour to add a bit of contrast into your outfit. Lace also looks amazing in white. A white lace dress is a great way of adapting a daring look, without actually baring too much skin. Look for a large eyelet design, to avoid the bridal look. For a really romantic vibe, go for a white maxi. One with a layered skirt, with an extremely wide hemline, will put you in that holiday mood immediately. Take it with you to the beach, or wear it around town when you get home from your summer holidays to remind you of fun in the sun! Whatever you do, make sure to take good care of your white dress. If it fades to grey in the wash, your fresh look will flop.
White dresses for special occasions
Let's deal with the elephant in the room: a white formal dress can look way too bridal. How can you stop people from thinking that you're on your way to your wedding? You might want to avoid white strapless dresses. This neckline is very common on bridal gowns, so it can give people the wrong idea. Similarly, stay away from white lace at night, and don't choose anything with pearls or other wedding-style add-ons. Another good tip is to keep it short. Your white dress should hit above the knee. You might want to choose a white base with a colourful print. Splashes of red, pink, green, or blue will make it very clear that you're a fashionista, not bride!
