It may be the color of wedding dresses, but there’s nothing bridal about wearing the shade celebs like Kim Kardashian and Emma Stone have been wearing everywhere. White gives outfits insta-airiness and adds serious pop to any color worn elsewhere. The white blazer and a white pair of bermuda pants are still the must have of the hot season and they are in good company.
Whether it’s a cotton button-down or a silk blouse, check white clothing for quality before you leave the store: the color is completely unforgiving toward wrinkles and sub-par laundering. First, crinkle the fabric in your hand. If the fabric retains a ton of wrinkles, expect it to need precise ironing before each wear. Next, place your hand under the fabric and hold it up to the light. If you can see your hand through the fabric, the piece will likely be sheer when you wear it. Additionally, check the item’s care instructions to ensure it’s not too high-maintenance for your lifestyle.
You need also the perfect white Tee and I guess you will change it the next year. Most stores offer endless iterations of this wardrobe staple, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to find the perfect one for you. Shop around on this piece: crew-neck or high-neck tees tend to look best on small-chested women, while V-necks and scoop-necks are flattering on almost all body types. No matter how diligently you sort your laundry, if you never clean your washing machine, your whites still might come out dingy. Add liquid chlorine bleach to your washer’s dispenser and run the machine on a long cycle with hot water.
There’s so much to look forward to in summer.
