How to Style White and NOT look big? (Part 1 - White Series)

Hey guys,

Finding some traction in my blog posts of late and thought I'd share these tips on how to style ( if you can call this a color) " White" and not look big? In my personal styling sessions, I often get thrown this question as many are of the mindset that styling black creates an illusion of being thinner - so styling white should be the opposite. Hence many of you do refrain from wearing full WHITE outfits.

Well, here's some tips you can avoid to trend a full White on White outfit and still look fabulous.

1) Personally, the style of the outfit/ silhouette is the first thing that comes to mind. A thicker fabric and one that is flowing rather than tight, definitely helps to create some texture and movement in the look and therefore take the focus away from key focal points that you do not wish to accentuate.

2) I believe in drawing the attention more towards your face, so showing a little more skin on the upper half of the body works, bring the focus to your face using accessories and great makeup.

3) Underwear is also key here! Many also have the misconception to wear white underwear with white outfits but to the contrary if the fabric is thin enough, it does show the silhouette a lot more than if one used nude toned underwear. 

4) A full white on white look actually works better to "slim" the look rather than working with pops of colour.

5) Wear items that are loose - if a full white outfit is tight fitting - every curve is accented and highlighted. Therefore, wearing items that fit looser ( again to Point 1) creates movement and texture and less emphasis on the body shape/ size.

Do look out for my posts on Part 2 & 3 of my White Series inspirations.
