White can be one of the trickiest colours in our wardrobes thanks to a whole history of rules that dictate when we can and can’t wear white, and which body types are best suited to white clothing. Here at Luxury-Legs we believe in the freedom of choice when it comes to your clothing, so you’ll find a whole range of beautiful white clothing and layer-wear options across our website – forget the rules and style yourself in 2016’s favourite summer shade.
There should be no rules limiting your wardrobe, it’s all about choosing quality clothing and styling the pieces to your shape and the occasion. Of course, you probably shouldn’t upstage the bride at a wedding by showing up in a white dress, but forget what you knew about white clothing rules and try something new for a fresh non-wedding occasionwear look.
A few simple tricks can help you to find the right types of white clothing for you. Quality is key, and a good way to tell good quality white clothing from the lesser quality garments is to check the transparency. Simply put your hand behind the fabric to test this out for yourself! All of our clothing at Luxury-Legs has been specially chosen for its superior quality, so when you buy from us you can trust that our clothing will keep you covered up in all the right places!
The next trick is making sure that your underwear isn’t showing through your white outerwear! The best way to disguise your underwear over any light clothing is to match the colour to your skintone and preferably buy a smooth or invisible lined set. We love the invisible brief collection by Hanro which is available in a wide range of skin tones.
White clothing reflects heat, making it the perfect colour for the summer here in the UK or abroad in warmer climates, but you have to consider more than just the colour when putting together your perfect summer white outfit. Knowing the right shape of clothing that’s most flattering for you can make or break an outfit, and the exact same rules apply when choosing white coloured clothing.
One of the most on-trend looks for SS16 is an all white outfit, but what may look sleek on some can look flat on others. Fashion experts typically advise that when putting together an all-white outfit you consider the occasion and the texture of the clothing.
For example, a minimal-look top such as this Christies Peplum Shaping Top can be perfect by itself for an evening look…
…but for daytime a textured top such as this Pierre Mantoux Boat Neck Top breaks up the plain look of the outfit and can be layered for a more casual or formal style as needed.
