An all-white outfit can be one of the hardest things to pull off but it really pays off in the long run. Not only is putting on an all-white outfit chic but it also helps you stand out and keep heads turning all day, maybe night.
Although dressing in an all-white outfit can be cumbersome because, for instance, you have to be careful how you walk for fear of ruining the outfit, it is easy care for your white pieces compared to the other outfits in your closet since white doesn’t fade or retain dirt.
In need of a dinner outfit? Or an outfit for that office party? Here are some tips to help you rock an all-white outfit like a pro:
Mix different textures
A trick to help you pull off an all-white outfit is by mixing textures. This move is sometimes bold but when properly done is a great success.
For instance, you can go with a white denim trouser and match it with a white t-shirt or blouse to complete the look. Mixing up different textures will make your monochrome outfit not look too boring.
Always note that when mixing different white textures focus on the same colour scheme. Yes, the colour white has many shades ranging from pure white to off-white. But not all white colours complement each other.
Go for a suit
If ever in doubt, always go for a white suit preferably a trouser suit. It will save you the hustle of getting the textures right since the coat and trouser will be made of the same material. Furthermore, they are classy and will never go out of style.
You can comfortably pull off a white trouser suit in any event and it will blend in seamlessly while still keeping heads turning.
Ensure that your suit is the perfect fit for this look to be as chic as possible.
Break it up with accessories and neutrals
When going for an all-white outfit you can’t afford to have everything in white. Say from your clothes, to your bag and shoes. It’s good to break it up a little. You can decide to have an all-white outfit and have nude shoes or incorporate a neutral coloured scarf.
Also, ensure to always accessorize when going for these kinds of outfit. Go for golden bangles, necklaces or statement belts as gold matches better with white outfits as compared to silver. Also, accessories will break the monotony and leave you looking angelic.
Tip: Always ensure your hair is properly done before pulling an all-white outfit. It is going to attract attention your way, you have to look the part.
