We all love a white dress. Just the idea of one brings to mind a beautiful bride or angelic angels dancing on a bed of clouds (well it does to me anyway). However, some might immediately think of every single lump and bump showing up. There is a way however!
Firstly choose a dress that is slightly baggy and loose (so you don’t have to worry about what you eat for lunch) and in a fabrication that doesn’t cling to your body. A nice double cotton or linen blend will offer this kind of security (just stay away from jersey or silk unless it’s lined). This dress is perfect as it’s loose at the tummy but fitted at the hips to give shape.
I like to give a white dress an edge by pairing it with earthy accessories like a worn leather jacket, ankle boots and a rustic style bag. Kind of bringing a little Boho feel to the look. It would look equally as good with sandals for super hot days or to throw over a bikini! A bit of texture or detail adds interest and breaks up the white. I always feel special when wearing white.
The brand Hunky Dory from Stockholm never fails with it’s seasonal selection of beautiful dresses. This biker and bag was no exception! As for the boots? They are oldies but goodies and will stay with me for life…
Have a great day, friends xx
