How to Style a White Dress

By October 13, 2015 , , , ,

If you haven't already heard, the white dress is the new black dress. Personally, I find myself always drawn to white dresses simply because they make you feel so ethereal and fresh. The beauty of a white dress lies in its versatile color. I see it as a blank canvas on which you can layer additional clothing and accessories like pieces of art! Be it a short summer dress or a maxi, the possibilities of how to style a white dress are endless.

Here are a few ideas of how to make yourself stand out in that white dress:

1. Go for the black & white contrast. Pair that short white dress with edgy black boots or a black purse. You can see how I did it here in a previous post.

2. Go for a monochromatic look. Mix colors from the same family - ivory, beige, and browns work together to create a classic style. Try to mix textures to make the look more visually interesting.

3. Add splashes of color against the backdrop of the white dress. That's what I did below to make this look my own.

4. Pair it with denim. If it's a dress, throw on a denim jacket with a sleeveless white dress. If you're a guy, you can wear your crisp white shirt with jeans. Scroll down further for examples provided by my son and husband!
