White Hot: Trendy Ways to Add White to Your Summer Wardrobe
Spring is in the air, which means summer will be here before you know it. And, as all fashionistas know, summer is the perfect season for wearing white. The middle of summer is the ideal time to include more white in your wardrobe, since the sun is at its brightest at this time, and you’ll look positively glowing in a white outfit, regardless of skin tone. According to some style mavens, wearing white is no longer permitted after Labor Day, the holiday that signifies the end of summer, so here are some chic ways to include the world’s brightest hue in your classy, bohemian or laid-back look.
White Dressy Sandal
A dressy, heeled sandal in white is the perfect formal finishing touch for the tailored pants suits and tastefully short dresses you’ll be wearing to brunches and cocktail parties this summer. A sensible, yet eye-catching heel can help flatter your figure and make your legs appear longer. A natural pedicure makes your white shoes the star of your outfit.
White Flat Sandal
Flat, strappy sandals make it easier to stroll the city in style. Wear these with loose-fitting boyfriend jeans and cuff the jeans to show off these studded beauties even more. White sandals look great with cutoff denim shorts as well and make any casual summer outfit look a little more refined.
A white scarf makes a monochromatic spring or summer ensemble pop. The scarf is particularly bright against a gray sweatshirt or cardigan, and makes drab office casual clothing more appealing. A manicure in a dark hue and a pink lip add deliberately stylish color to this white-themed ensemble.
A manicure in white instantly wakes up your hands and gives your skin a pick me up. You can add gold or silver embellishments to your nails to complement warm or cool skin tones. Stark white works on nails of any length, and if you wear your nails short, you may be able to get away with wearing this shade to the office.
Fashionably shield your peepers from the glaring rays of the sun with white-hot shades. The light color of the sunglasses’ rims make your face appear a little perkier, and wake up the rest of your outfit, especially if you’re wearing dark colors. Choose a slightly square lens shape if your face is oval or oblong, or a rounded rectangle shape if you have a heart-shaped or round face.
