White outfits are like blank canvases. You have an indefinite number of options when it comes to shoe color and accessories. My preference for shoe colors are neutral colors or light colors such as white, bone, beige, nude or metallics. They look great with all white outfits. Then you have many options when it comes to accessories and jewelry. Choose colors that flatter you when picking out accessories. However white outfits work with colored, black or printed shoes also but they will call attention to your feet and legs. When accessorizing colored or print shoes you can pick up the shoe color in your bag and /or jewelry. Stick to two colors with white for example the woman in the photo below is wearing turquoise accessories but has a different color bag.
Sexy and / or Conservative?
Sexy and / or conservative a white dress is a summer staple. The color white has a wide range of associations. It can symbolize honesty, purity, femininity, celebration, virginity, optimism, power, confidence, strength and possibly deception. White dresses make a statement but not always revealing much about the wearer.
How can I style a white lace dress? I am thinking of purchasing a white lace dress for summer.
How you style a white lace dress depends on the style of the lace dress you purchase. Choose a simple style lace dress (avoid ruffled styles). Keep your makeup and accessories simple. Simple leather sandals and a leather bag in tan or neutral/ bone color would look stylish. A lace dress makes a statement. Purchase quality and opt for simple gold or pearl earrings.
