White is the color of simplicity and purity! Yet white seems to come with a lot of "rules."
"No white after Labor Day."
"No white before Easter."
"White should be worn on your wedding day as a symbol of purity."
"Don't wear white if you are attending a wedding."
Some of these white rules still apply today! Some, like the Easter and Labor Day ones, are rarely thought of unless you live in the Deep South. I think we can all agree to the last one. Just don't show up trying to "outdo" the bride ;)
Is white good for all skin types? Mostly. White generally makes skin seem darker, but it might make some skin types look washed out. Try a white skirt if you don't want it around your face.
Three things to keep in mind when wearing white:
- Give your teeth an extra scrub for a bright white smile :D
- Be mindful of what undergarments you choose. Be sure to have slips and camis to go under the garment.
- Carry a Tide-To-Go pen with you in case of spills.
Whites are basics in your wardrobe because of the clean, crisp look. So add some white to your life!
