3 Ways to Wear a White Dress

I used to stay away from any white item of clothing for two main reasons. Firstly because I’m so pasty my legs are practically translucent at the moment and secondly, because I’m messy by nature which means me plus food or drink are a nightmare when in white.

However, this hasn’t stopped me from acquiring a fair few white dresses in my wardrobe. Here are my three favourites and how I wear them.

On a Date…
 

I love any dress that hugs my chest and then skims the rest. I also love a dress that is spacious in the middle, allowing extra room for all the food and drink I like to consume on an actual dinner date.
It’s almost like wearing a nightie out, albeit a slightly sexier one with deep pockets. Sometimes I cinch in the waist with a slim belt, but this all depends on how I’m feeling. I like to go down the slightly rocky route with this dress so I always add black accessories and chunky jewellery. The red lip is always a definite.

To Work…

When dressing for work in the summer it takes a lot more thought than usual. I don’t want to flash too much skin but I also don’t want to melt on my non air-conditioned train. I picked this dress up from Topshop for around a tenner when Luella’s cut-out heart dresses were all the rage.

It’s a little too girly for me with the flowers and the heart neckline but I do bring it out every summer. Plus, I can twirl in it. Need I say more?

On Holiday…

This is my ultimate holiday dress. It’s covered in lace, extremely short, has one ginormous lace sleeve and is just magical. I would say that because there is a lot of flesh on show, this dress looks its best when I have a slight tan.

There’s a whole boho vibe I love with this dress. Imagine it with added flowers in my hair.
