Stay Away From the White-Out Look
Nothing looks chicer than a white pencil skirt for work, and pairing it with a crisp, white top can look even better. The one thing you'll want to change up though, is your accessories. Stay away from adding more white, as you may end up looking like a nurse-like cartoon character. Instead, try a neutral belt and heels, adding a pop of color with a bright bag. Gold jewelry and tortoise-shell glasses tie it all together, giving you a clean, summer, work look like Adora's:
Skirt: Express, $59.00
Top: Club Monaco, $80.00
Shoes: Payless, $25.00
Bag, Banana Republic, $49
Bangles: Topshop, $40
Sunglasses: Old Navy, $5
Say No to Too-Tight White
Many of us have the tendency to want to add a bit of sex appeal to our outfits, especially when going out at night. But, nothing looks worse than too-tight white. Not only will you see every lump and bump, but too-tight dresses (especially short white ones) can run the risk of looking way 80's. Keep it classic in a structured fabric white shift like Shannon's--it shows just the right amount of skin, and again, gold accessories are perfectly complementary to summer white.
Shift Dress: Banana Republic, $130.00
Clutch: Aldo, $20
Necklace: Topshop, $40
Shoes: Nine West, $48.00
Watch out for See-Through White!
White pants are a summer must-have, but don't forget to check yourself in the light--if you can see through your pockets or easily define your undergarments, the fabric is too sheer. White jeans like Monica's are always appropriate no matter the season and the thicker denim fabric will make it impossible to see anything you've got on underneath!
White Jeans: Ann Taylor LOFT, $49.00
Blue Top: Gap, $48.00
Sandals: Steve Madden, $49.00
Clutch: Ann Taylor LOFT, $39.00
