How to accessorize white
Always be extra careful in accessorizing your look, as they may take your look to an edge or let you down. Your jewelries, bag and footwear should be picky. Accessory designer Pushpita Gaur suggests to go for something that compliments like bags in camel, beige, brown or soft grey colored bags and footwear.
Even metallic shades such as silver, gold and bronze metallic accessories such as clutches, heels, flats and hobo bags are great addition to enhance the look.
“Wear strappy pumps in metallic or heels with Swarovski crystals or diamonds. Precious or semi-precious stones in turquoise or other colors for shoes and bags work wonderfully with whites.”
Vintage/traditional accessories always look great with white outfits, as the detailing in the pieces pop up sharply thereby enhancing the charm of your overall look.
And when you’re going for white gowns, always pair them with metallic heels and bags, because accessories in darker shades can mess up your entire look. And do not forget to go for the perfect hair-do, because white is classic so your look should always be elegant and classy.
When it comes to gowns and kaftans, always try going for fabrics such as silk Lycra, silk crepes or silk chiffon. Do not go for whites in synthetics and satins, especially for summer.
Designer Troy Costa has this to say on fabrics
“Linen is one of the best fabrics to wear during summer because it has more weight over cotton and if you are a little overweight you can chat a little if you choose this fabric. Stay away from puffy fabrics if you want to look slimmer than you are.”
