For some it’s all about the Little Black Dress. But for me, it’s all about the WHITE! I’ve always been drawn to white. Anytime I see a new top and it’s available in white…that’s always the one I go for. And white dresses. Ahhh don’t even get me started. White dresses are my kryponite. Like a moth to a flame. Like peanut butter and jelly. Ok you get it…I like white dresses (and skirts). There’s something about them-who knows, maybe it spawns from something in my childhood-but I feel so relaxed, fresh, carefree and beautiful in anything white. I’m a bohemian, hippy girl at heart and there’s something about a dress in the wilderness that makes me feel so connected with nature and at peace.
So other than my hippy reasons for loving white dresses-and the fact that my husband loves me in white-here are some other fun facts and reasons to own (at least one or TEN white dresses)
1.PHOTOGRAPH WELL-White reflects the light in a flattering way. You notice how some of the best pictures are in areas with lighter toned surroundings? That’s because the sun reflects off of those and casts a light over YOU as well.
2.GOES WITH EVERYTHING-white like black is a timeless staple. It goes with anythings and will never go out of style
3.COOLER-I’m talking temperature (although they are pretty cool). For those warmer days, it’s best to wear white if you want to keep from over heating.
4.FLATTERING-have you ever met something who doesn’t look good in the color white? I haven’t. And probably never will. That’s because white doesn’t have a tone or hue that conflicts with various skin tones etc. And no matter how fair a person is, they will never be whiter than the white. So white clothing will always provide a strong contrast. It’s simply neutral and flattering on every skin color.
WOW I’ve said “white” over 12 times in this post. LOL This dress is from Forever 21 and has been one of my FAVORITES for a looong time (I love it when I find pieces that I wear over and over and over again.) I always find something in Forever 21 and their price points are so fantastic that even if I don’t wear it into the ground (which I usually do) then it’s not the end of the world.
I’m also loving this, this (on sale!) & this one at Forever 21
