It is true that white is black’s paler, less slimming twin. It is also true that white is softer and prettier. It’s an easy, no-matching-required option for creating a great outfit.

White is young and fresh. Ultimately, white is chic.

Unlike black, it won’t have you looking like a solemn widow.

So, why not wear white?

People are afraid to wear it because it takes more effort to make white work for their body.

It’s no secret it takes more effort to pull off a fabulous all-white look.

Here are some ideas to help make white work for you.

Pretty Peplum

Peplum is a short overskirt attached clothing to add a flirty and whimsical dimension. Best of all, peplum is figure-flattering and feminine because it cinches in at the waist, then floats away from the midsection.

Peplum is all the rage for Spring 2012. I recommend a white peplum dress or pair a white peplum blouse with cigarette pants.

The Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are the most effortless and comfortable article of clothing you can wear. They elongate your silhouette and flow away from your body. A white maxi dress is an easy way to master the all-white look. Pair it with a stack of wooden bangles and you’ll look like a bohemian goddess.

Structured Blazers

If frills and long dresses are not your thing, give the androgynous look a try. Pair white skinny or wide-leg pants with a structured white blazer. You’ll look crisp and confident in this classic combination.

So, try on white for a change.

You may be surprised with how chic you look when you switch over to the lighter, brighter side.
