Of all the Fashion Myths I have broken in my head, the “White Taboo” was indeed the biggest. For some odd scientific reason which stated that the colour white reflected light, I have always stayed away from it, or anything close. Consequently I kept denying myself of many outfit combinations, including the classic “white and denims”. Since I have been on a strong mission to drag myself out of my inhibitions, this was one I needed to get rid of. It wasn’t until I tried on the colour that I realised how beautiful it actually is and compliments every skin tone.
Here are some of the things I kept in mind while styling white:
1. There is no denying that white has a tendency of highlighting the not-so-highlightable, therefore I opted for a darker colored layering. This camouflages the love handles well and gives a side – panel like effect.
2. Since my top has an extremely low neckline, I wore a black camisole which additionally serves the purpose of a shapewear and balances the black on the outside.
3. I chose skinny denims to structure out the entire look.
4. Pearls and stilettos were used as accessories to keep the look polished and sophisticated.
