I totally love the fact that fashion is on my side (well, it always is) and offers the perfect combination of white and lace, translucency, and pieces that get their inspiration from the world of lingerie. Many brands use luxurious lace made in the south of Italy, where this tradition is still very much alive, to make sets and two-piece combinations, jumpsuits, and even crop-tops that will take your breath away. It’s hard to limit yourself to one … that’s the only trouble.
The nature and weight of lace limit the choice of material mostly to cotton, which is perfect for the summer. White is the colour of perfection, the colour of clarity and a wave-length that perfectly balances three natural colours: red, blue and green. Its colour meaning is clarity, purity and completion. It reigns above all other colours in the summer, and it’s the shade that makes us feel fresh and cooler. Lengths of white dresses are quite diverse: midi, mini, or long and peasant style. There are A-line pleated models with frills or ruffles, smooth ones, or comfortably wide styles to choose from. The most desired dresses show off your bare shoulders ‒ styled with flat slip-ons they’re the perfect daytime style.
Like I’ve mentioned, two-piece models are gorgeous and they usually combine a maxi skirt and crop-top. You can also find lots of white in the jumpsuit department, long and short, and the latter is perfect for the beach. White is one of the trends that are going to define this summer. Its basic characteristic is equality ‒ integrity and open-mindedness, neutrality and independence. White colour gives us the opportunity to cleanse our inner-selves, our thoughts and emotions. It refreshes and boosts our energy system. I believe that colours have a strong influence on our well-being, so the fact that white makes us feel so well and peaceful should be no surprise.
Lots of people use white as a reminder of youth and innocence, a time when their lives were easier and less complicated. It also symbolises cleanliness and efficiency, so it is widely used in medicine, on the other hand, it can also give off a sense of sterility and impassiveness. From the fashion point of view, you can style it with gold accessories, which compliment it beautifully; peasant style demands hoop earrings, you can also opt for long necklaces and wide bracelets. If the dress is very smooth and simple, opt for more jewellery, and if it’s already full of frills and ruffles, try to hold yourself back a bit.
