A super classic of summer fashion has always been the white summer dress, even better if it is fresh and airy.
Summer fashion offers so many great white summer dresses and in so many different patterns!
Short or long, the white summer dress is able like no other garment to enhance our tan and keep us cool with style and elegance.
The styles of the white summer dress are endless, from the more minimal and straightforward to boho-inspired ones, full of lace, lace, ribbons and ruffles, a genre that in summer-and unlike the rest of the year-I also love so much.
The advantage of the white dress lies entirely in its color. White is in fact a strong color in its own way, an absolute protagonist, which at the same time offers the advantage of turning into a “base” capable of enhancing anything:
multicolored patterns, textured fabrics, unusual details, materials such as leather, rattan or golden metal, but also other neutral tones that, together with white, create beautiful plays of shades.
1- ALL WHITE
White is certainly a star color and its impact can be quite strong, despite its apparent neutrality.
So why not take full advantage of its effect by wearing an all-white dress and matching accessories?
2 – THE WHITE LACE DRESS
The neutrality and whiteness of a white dress make it the ideal base for playing with the richness of fabric.
Therefore, fabrics and details such as lace, fringe, ruffles, crochet embroidery and tassels maximize the effect without (almost) ever coming across as kitch or “too much.”
3 – WHITE 2.0
We have already seen that white is perhaps the absolute best color for enhancing patterns, bright colors and distinctive fabrics by contrast.
So why not merge the two in the beginning and opt for a little white dress with pattern incorporated?
The important thing is to choose one in which white takes the lead anyway: this type of pattern, in fact, brightens up the wearer’s face so much.
4 – WHITE & LEATHER
Leather and suede accessories are ideal allies of white.
5 – WHITE & NATURAL FIBERS
White is also an ideal compendium of many natural fibers such as straw, rattan, wood and leather.
An effect that can be easily “played” with straw bags and hats, necklaces made of materials obtained from nature and other “natural” details.
Accessories such as tortoiseshell sunglasses, bracelets or hair combs also tie in nicely with a white dress.
6 – WHITE & ANIMAL PRINTS
Less classic, but striking pairing for the classic summer dress.
The important thing is to keep everything else neutral, especially the shoes.
This time it is not a dress, but I find the effect beautiful….
7 – WHITE & COLOR
In this case it really only takes a detail to change the rules of the game!
8 – TRANSPARENCIES
Very pleasant and appreciated, finally, are also patterns with cut-out effects or transparencies, which in the case of white (as well as the rest of black) fully explicate their effect.
