Enough of black, how about a little white dress?
We've all heard about the almost proverbial phrase “every woman’s little black dress.” True, it is close to being an indispensable thing in a woman’s wardrobe. But it is equally true that black has been done to death. Why not break the mould and try something new and different? Wondering what it could be? Think white! It is not only a colour that is warm and soothing, but also is versatile enough to look good on all body types. When everyone around can only experiment with black party dresses, why not go an extra mile and innovate further with a white dress indeed?
It’s also suitable for daytime or afternoon parties, since white is an extremely soft and sober colour. It’ll make you feel sexy and classy at the same time, just by the drapes and silhouettes it creates. The best thing about a white dress is that it is equally suitable to be worn to a friend’s party as it for a more glamorous, high-profile event. It not only makes you stand out in a crowd but is no less fun and flirty! As for the accessories to be paired with your white dress, less is more is always the mantra! Some might choose to pair their all-white attire with gold accessories and gold or nude shoes for a clean, crisp look. Others might prefer silver jewellery, and still others may get a little bolder and go for bright colour or prints in accessories and shoes, to create a contrast look and add the necessary zing. Since white in itself acts like a blank canvas, you can try out endless possibilities to jazz it up. From colourful clutches or metallic jewels, quirky belts or intricate detailing, everything works well with a white dress.
Not only for ball gowns and wedding dresses, white is rising fast on the popularity chart even for cocktail parties, prom nights and casual gatherings. Be it Amanda Seyfried, Eliza Doolittle or Beyonce, every other celebrity are sporting this trend, with their own unique touch to it. For that extra glitz, you can choose one with embellishments and beadings, and if cuteness is your forte, settle for peter-pan collars and contrasting trims. Laces work wonders with white, giving you that perfect blend of daintiness and elegance. You may also draw inspiration from Indian bevy of beauties, the likes of Kareena Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif, and others, who are taking the “white dress” route.
Indeed, no other colour can be as ethereal and serene as white, which blends beautifully for daytime purposes and exudes an immaculate charm as your evening attire. No wonder, the little black dress has stepped aside and made way for white party dresses now. Try it out and you’re sure to make heads turn!
