That’s Right Fashionistas – It’s White and Day Party Season
Ok Fashionistas, tis’ the season for White and Day parties. Since we don’t do fashion rules (because we wear and do what we wanna), I’m gonna give you my philosophy on how to dress for White and Day parties – KEEP IT GROWN AND SEXY. If you look in the mirror and you look like you are going on a church picnic that might not quite be a GROWN AND SEXY look (no judgement; I’m just saying). Look for outfits that tastefully show a little skin like an off the shoulder top or a blouse with slits on the sleeve.
First, shop your closet. White parties can be easy because we all have a little white in our closet; we just need to pull it together right. If you have an over-sized (must be loosely fitting) white button-down shirt, wear that with some white jeans (these are a summer closet must have – Gap). To add some wow, and if you feel comfortable, you can also button the shirt midway and then tie the bottom. Just make sure the shirt doesn’t look tight.
Last week, posted about my love for bling. White and Day parties are great for silver metallic and shimmery sequin. If you don’t want to be over the top (watch for an upcoming post on why being over the top in fashion, extra, is a good thing), do a sequin top and white bottom or vice versa.
For Day parties, cute sun dresses and jump suits are always a winner. I actually like wearing white to Day parties because the white tends to standout (that’s why you are there). For me, the perfect accessories for a Day party are a big brim, straw hat and a smile. Remember, keep it GROWN AND SEXY. Happy party season.
