In terms of physics, white isn’t a color, because white is the presence of all colors. But to us every day people, we consider white to be a color we usually try to avoid, since it’s such a pristine and classic color. We fear that one day we will be devouring some frozen yogurt or strawberries on a hot summer’s day and then we drip some on our beautiful, newly dry cleaned white outfit, so we never dare to wear white again. Well, white is the perfect color to be wearing in the summer, because white reflects the sun and keeps us cool, that’s one advantage of wearing white. White is neutral, so you can afford to accessorize and add pops of different colors to emphasize the white outfit. White should not be only reserved for your wedding day. White is chic, simple and minimal and makes a casual day outfit or a fashionable night outfit.
Day: Try a simple white t-shirt dress. This allows for accessorizing with statement necklaces, rings and tan shoes for a classic look.
Night: Pair a white blazer with a maxi skirt for an elegant evening out on a date or dinner with your girlfriends.
Don’t be scared of white. White is your friend, white is minimal and so great for any season. Be fearless and put together a white outfit sometime this summer. The ancient Romans and Grecian weren’t afraid to wear white on a daily basis, so neither should you. Need a visual reference? Think White Party in Gossip Girl Season 2 Premiere.
