Fashion Tip Friday: How to Wear Summer Whites
In honor of the royal wedding, I thought I’d highlight some tips on wearing white. Even though I’m very fair, I can pull off white in the summer so I’m guessing most of you can too! Many say you shouldn’t don white until after Memorial Day, but whatev. If it’s hot out and you’re looking cute in white, I say go for it. However, there are some tips that should be followed!
Tip 1: Whites tend to be see through, so be sure to wear flesh colored undergarments and/or a camisole. If you make the mistake of wearing patterened undergarments (or even white ones), the world will know it. And no matter how cute your bum is…this is not appropriate!
You may want to stand in front of an open backlit doorway and have a loved one check to see if your silhouette is something you are comfortable with before leaving the house :). I’ve made the mistake on several occasions of thinking I was good to go only to be mortified in the daylight.

Tip 2: Keep your white garments light and flowy. Tight and white is not flattering on most figures.
Tip 3: Bare, tanned legs look best under your white dress. Opt to wear nude colored spanx instead of hose, but if you must wear hosiery, don’t choose a white pair. White reflects light and expands your shape. Your legs will look chunky encased in white.
Tip 4: For the same reason, unless you are very thin, steer clear of white leggings. Pair a white blouse or tee with a darker pair of pants or shorts to elongate your figure.

Tip 5: Too much of a good thing can ruin your look. Nude, metallic, or a pop of color on your shoe will typically look more flattering with your all-white outfit than a white pair.
