So you’ve found the perfect white dress and you’re trying to think of an appropriate occasion to wear it. Whether you want to avoid looking like a bride at your year 12 formal, or you’re attending a wedding and don’t want to be accused of stealing the newlywed’s lime light, it can be hard to know how to style a white outfit.
We are not going to advise you to wear a white wedding gown on your cousin’s big day, however we have come up with ways to style a perfect white outfit, without creating a ‘bridezilla’ scene.
Mix & Match with Bright Colours
Nothing shouts ‘non-bridal party’ like a mix of colours. By wearing a range of colours on a predominately white outfit, you can draw the main attraction of your outfit to the coloured shades.
We also recommend our Louisa Floral Dress. This stylish full-length dress, designed by Langhem, is fresh, elegant and the perfect choice for an evening event.
Alternatively you can add some funky, bright accessories to your white dress to really make it POP. Whether that’s in a theme of bright red bracelets and necklaces, or with a pair of snazzy blue heels, adding colour can really take away that bridal feel to an outfit.
If your dress is above the knee, it’s unlikely that it will look bridal-like. Although we don’t recommend wearing a dress that is soley white to a wedding (regardless of it’s length), we do think a knee-length white dress can be the perfect choice for an evening event.
Check out our Belinda Dress. The beautiful patterning is far from simple; all you have left to do is dance the night away.
Experiment with white accessories
Sometimes you just want to brighten your overall look, and white can be the best way to do this. Try adding white accessories to a colour-filled dress. White accessories are perfectly acceptable to wear to a wedding – and you get to fulfill your white fix!
A fascinator might be the perfect accessory to finish off your look (and here at Sentani we don’t just stock white).
Off-White is the New White
Maybe you just didn’t have time to tan and your natural, not-so-tanned, skin tone just isn’t accepting of your dark shade outfits.
Try a cream or an off-white dress like our Misty Dress. This gorgeous full-length dress, which is covered in beautiful beaded lace, could be your go-to pale skin tone saviour.
No white needed!
