Too scared to wear white? Get it right by keeping these golden rules in mind:
Never wear white underwear underneath a white blouse or pants. Rather go for nude-coloured underwear.
When buying white pants, always buy them in a size bigger. You want to avoid looking like your pants were sewn onto your body. White linen pants are always a good buy.
When wearing a white blazer or jersey, pull or fold the sleeves up to avoid staining it with food, etc.
Wear white on the part of your body that you want to accentuate; like wearing a white blouse to make your shoulders look broader or your bust appear bigger.
If you want to wear white on white – which you absolutely can! – keep your look crisp and clean by sticking to one detailed item only. For instance, if your top is embellished or has lace detail, keep your skirt/shorts plain.
