How To Wear White This Summer

Summer’s on the way, which means lots of beautiful white fashion finds are sure to be surfacing more and more. We know you’re nervous about it: white has a bad rep for flattery. Here’s the guide on how to wear it without it wearing you.


1. Start with a shift dress like this Grecian Dress from Velvet. The soft pleating keeps it from clinging, while the lyocell ensures a beautiful drape. Best of all, it’s machine washable, so you won’t face a dry cleaning bill every time you wear it.

2. Wear nude underwear (NOT white) is a must. Barelythere’s Comfortable Curves Bra in soft taupe makes sure you’re in good form, while you can cover your assets with their Flawless Fit Hipster in lightweight microfiber.

3. Perk up your skin with the soft glow of bronzer without all the dangers of the sun: we love L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion, which is safe for face and body and gives you an extra kick of SPF, so “bronze” doesn’t turn to “burnt.”

4. Accessorize appropriately with delicate layered necklaces or a stack of sleek silver bangles. Steer clear of clunky shoes and never wear white sandals. Airy flats with a bold bright hue are best like these ribbon sandals, or for more demure sophistication, pair up with pale gray spiderweb flats. You can also add pop to your outfit with this Phoenix-print bag in organic cotton or Paris Tote Bag depending on the occasion.
