We don’t have to be altogether perfect to wear a white dress.
And nor do we need to be going bridal.
White is a fabulous dress colour when worn with the right accessories. Like the white jeans, it is all about how we work the piece. I would never wear anything too tight in white and nor would I wear a shapeless nightie style. I tried this a couple of summers ago, at great expense; it was the worst white dress I have ever bought and I looked terrible in it. Nothing could redeem the baggy shape and unflattering line – the moral of the story is to remember what suits you.
I lost sight of that for a moment and paid the price, literally.
Fashion is expensive most of the time so a disaster is not inconsequential. I learned from this and after a period of mourning I am happy to say white and I are back together and having a moment.
Which White Dress?
White needs accessorising. Lots of bracelets, contrasting coloured shoes or a bright lipstick take the white dress to another level. What about these shoes? The nude suede would be beautiful with all white.
The white dresses below are some to save on and the first is definitely making its way into my wardrobe. xv
