Finally,a friend of mine uploaded my pictures.She was sweet enough to take my memory card home.So,though my camera is still not working,I can finally do this long-due post.
I did a post on color blocking long back.But apart from the changing trends every summer,there're a few classics that'll see you through every summer,with your eyes closed.One of them is WHITE.Yes,it's a classic for spring,winter,autumn or every other season too.But it's the GOD of summer.White goes with everything.But that doesn't mean you should wear it with everything.Don't wear white with white unless you're a huge Jeetendra fan.White goes best with nude.So,team your white shirt with a nude bag or pump and you're good to go.But in case it sounds too boring to you,you could keep the white-nude combo and spice it up with a pop of yummy candy colors like pink or orange.Burnt orange works well too.You could also carry a tan satchel or a leather purse.While shopping for white,you could try the following options:
1)The basic white shirt-an absolute classic.Go pure white,no prints or other details.Get a crisp,basic one.Choose full sleeves,puff sleeves or three quarter sleeves according to your preference.
2)The LWD-the trendier and more practical cousin of LBD,a LWD or Little White Dress is another must-have in your wardrobe.You could wear it with nude stilettos in the evening and flats for a day look.Stay away from frills,embellishments,prints,semi precious stones etc.
3)The white blouse-a white ruffled blouse is a chic addition to your wardrobe.Tuck it inside your black or steel grey trousers or cropped pants or denims.A good belt and a chic hairdo should be enough to make you stand out.
4)The white maxi-you must've seen Sonam Kapoor rock this one in Cannes.A milky white flowing maxi dress is all you need to feel feminine and beautiful this season.Wear your hair in a bun.A cocktail ring(not too loud)or a hint of color on your earrings and good heels.Period.But don't try this if you're too short or fat.It won't look flattering.
There're plenty of other options you could try with white.Just remember,the golden rule for wearing white is to keep it simple. Less is always more.
