I was never sure about wearing all white.
Now I am a convert.
The dress code said, “all white” and everybody followed to the letter.
I struggled with the thought of dressing up in a non-colour that I selectively reserve for sleepwear or beach wear; an all white caftan or a vintage linen nightie are staples in my wardrobe. An all white day-into-evening outfit is not a part of my regular repetoire.
All that has changed.
I am now an official fan of the white dress but what I did realise is there are certain ways to style and wear all-white.
How To Wear “All White”
*Copy Coco Chanel and introduce some black detailing or accessorising.
*Search for different textures to mix together and differentiate the all white.
*Keep it simple to avoid feeling too bridal.
*Know your style and wear the shapes to flatter and feel comfortable in.
*Undergarments are of the utmost importance when wearing white – a no line and not too see -through is my motto.
*White requires more regular maintenance and ironing; make sure there is ample time before wearing.
I always felt it would be unflattering to wear all white; I have changed my mind.
White is a great friend to the grey hair and an easy one to accessorise. Pretty much everything goes; On this particular occasion I went with black shoes and white sunglasses because I was travelling and I didn’t want to break my 3 Shoe-Rule.
Now I am home I will be trying out all the combinations I can. All White, here I come. xv
