How to Wear White

Apr 04, 2014

Crisp whites are perfect for the warm summer months but the idea of anything more than a white t-shirt can be a bit daunting. But a crisp, all-white ensemble smacks of summer days and jaunts to the seaside even if you're nowhere near a beach. Go for white jeans, a cool pair of white sandals or swap your denim shorts for a white sundress! This simple color looks best with minimal accessories so less is definitely more when it comes to working the white trend. We show you the easiest ways to work white into your summer wardrobe

White Jeans

The key to looking chic in your white jeans is simply how you style them. A super simple look is going classic monochrome and pair your white jeans with a cool black top. Or go with a pretty print to really amp up your summer style. We love the look of white jeans with simple silver metallic sandals, black or tan - avoid heavy looking footwear!  A great pair of white jeans is a summer classic

White Jacket

A crisp white jacket can transform all of your outfits into polished summer looks. A cool white jacket as a summer jacket instantly brightens up whatever you're wearing and instantly makes it looks more breezy. A white jacket looks especially fabulous when paired with a pair of classic blue jeans but looks equally great paired with navy for a more nautical look.

White Sandals

If you're still a bit hesitant about wearing head to toe white, test out the waters by wearing a cool pair of white sandals or flats. White shoes look best when they're sleek and simple. Look for simple, unembellished ballet pumps or sleek sandals that aren't too strappy. We love these Saltwater sandals - best of all you can even wear them in water!

The Little White Dress

Stand out from the crowd and invest in a little white dress for summer! It never goes out of style, you can dress it up or dress it down and it's an easy way to instantly channel beachy summer style! Just don't pair them with white shoes - you don't want to look too matchy-matchy. Pair the look with black accessories for graphic punch that simultaneously classic and trendy.

You need to clear things up with your best friend, and express to her what you feel because friendship requires open communication for it to last. Likewise, you should also take into consideration that not because she`s your best friend and she knows that you like this guy, she`s not allowed to be friends and eventually have a romantic relationship with this guy. Love does not follow a first come first serve basis, that`s reality.  Now, if you really love or like that person then you should be happy for him. True love means putting someone else`s happiness before your own EVEN IF you`re not part of that happiness. There`s a reason for everything, someday this will all make sense. :)
