Simple and Elegant
This simple white dress can work for either a date night or a work lunch by pairing it with appropriate accessories (colourful or metallic) as well as geometric heels to complete the sleek look.
If you feel like taking a walk in the park, the right pair of sneakers can give you that off-duty model look. Lastly, you can’t go wrong with a trendy black leather jacket and if that isn’t your thing then a blazer goes a long way in dressing the look up.
The straight cut might not suit everyone, so for all you curvy and more full-bodied types here are a few tips that might make shopping for the right white dress a little easier. To balance your body out if you are bustier then V-necks are a great way to extend your torso. A nipped waist can accentuate your curves if you have an hourglass figure whereas a shift dress is more suitable if you have a wider waist.
A little lace can give your dress the simple, girly detail you are looking for. If you’re on the seaside, some colourful bangles or a tribal looking necklace go really well in giving your a more fashionable look.
The long dress is the right cut for a longer torso, add a long necklace and some tan sandals for a very boho look. Relaxed and comfortable, add a straw hat or a scarf to complete the look on a day out with friends.
