Style Tips for an All-White Ensemble
Wearing all white hue from head to toe can be tricky. It could go either way – exceptionally stylish or horrendously unflattering. Admittedly, all-white outfits are hard to pull off; but when done the right way, it instantly gives off an air of sophistication and creates a high-impact look. Thus, assembling an entire piece together and finding a flattering cut is of upmost importance. Without further ado, Covetella presents you several fashion survival tips that will take your Le Dîner en Blanc #ootd to brand new heights!
1. Throw in Some Metallics
There are times when the colour white has been accused of making woman appear heavier than they are. To avoid this nightmare, try pairing your plain white dress with sleek silver or gold belt that not only makes the waist more apparent but also creates a flattering figure. Another must-have accessory would be a pair of chic mirrored sunglasses! Whether its cat-eye or aviators, this subtle yet impressionable addition turns an otherwise casual outfit into something sumptuous.
2. A Pop of Colour
Add a pop of colour to your all-white ensemble with statement necklaces and bold earrings or cuffs to give the monochromatic piece a fun twist! Bright colourful accessories take slight attention away from the clothes and instead, provide more emphasis on the adorned jewelry. However, for the less daring sorts, you could choose to add some flair by mixing different shades of white – cream or nude colours.
3. Shine Bright like a Diamond
At Covetella, we believe that no one can be “overdressed”. If you love glitz and glamour, throw on a white dress that’s embellished with sparkling sequins and shiny studs to achieve that fashion statement pizzazz. You’ll definitely be the most eye-catching person at the event!
4. Greek Goddess
Who says a flattering dress must be tight or body-hugging? You can still channel your inner goddess with an elegant dress that’s streamlined and stripped of excesses, providing sleek silhouettes that will turn heads anywhere and everywhere you go. More so, a flowy and breezy dress will be most perfect for Singapore’s scorching weather.
5. Play with Textures
Forget cotton and polyester, the key to looking great in white is to play with textures. Try wearing clothes made of a different fabric – sheer, lace or crochet. These textures elevate the simplicity of an all-white dress and are the perfect touch to an evening of alfresco dining. Additionally, incorporating bold prints or embroidery onto your clothes is another way to spice up a simple outfit!
Dresses with unique cut-outs can help break up the all-white look to make a jaw-dropping statement.
7. Bold Lips
When you’re entirely donned in white, let your makeup do the talking. Go big and bold with daring lip colours like bright red or neon orange tones to achieve the ultimate summer vibes. Against the white frame, its brightness will make your look fresh and crisp!
Last but not least, remember to carry a pocket-size instant stain remover in case of any unwanted mishaps! You can never be too careful when it comes to all-white.
