How to Wear White

Witchery’s new SS16 collection is all about mixing and matching different textures and shades of white. It’s a classic colour to live by, perfect for the warmer seasons, reflects light, giving you a fresh glow, and can be worn as a hero piece, accent or base. Wearing white also sends a message that you are strong, practical and tranquil. So whether you want to wear an ivory ensemble for your next weekend outing or make a vanilla outfit work for your date night, read on- we’ve teamed up with Witchery to incorporate white into all your outfits for the week.
 
 
WEEKEND
White sleeveless top+ structured shorts + tailored vest + ballet flats
Keep lines simple and smart or amp it up with a statement heel.A pretty white dress for the weekend is okay too- spaghetti straps, pleats and cut-out shoulders are trending.
 
WEEKDAY
White cotton tee + tailored pants + fine knit cardigan + oxford flats
Weekday white usually is invisible as a backdrop for other colours or statements, such as a white tee-shirt featuring a logo, message or graphic. Add a structured piece like a sharp blazer for extra sharpness.
 
WORKWEAR
White cotton button down + softly gathered skirt + cropped jacket + kitten heels
White at the office can express authority, security, reliability or fastidiousness, so keep the shape soft and feminine to avoid looking harsh and unapproachable. Avoid sheer fabrics and anything see-through.
 
 
Now you’ve got your outfit sorted, here are some of our top tips to turn your outfit average to amazing:

· Some classic white combos to try are white, black and hot pink and white, navy and mustard. White with oatmeal and orange always looks well appointed.

· Always ensure your whites are pristine.

· Make sure your white shirt is soft and feminine either in cut or fabric, as a simple collared shirt can be bland or severe.

· Top-to-toe white can be tricky, so break it up with light grey or tan accessories.  Choose different textures of fabrics to add some contrast to your outfit.
