White can be cool. White can be sexy. White’s no longer just for summer, we’ve seen celebs like Halle Berry, Rachel McAdams and Rachel Bilson wear white on the red carpet for quite awhile. The rest of us are going to start wearing white after Memorial Day (our moms would smack us if we wore it before that day).
How to wear it? You can wear all white, or white with a pop of color. Take AnnaLynne McCord: she wore a white blazer, white top with denim shorts, red shoes and jewelry and a neutral bag and it works. So, to make white pop even more, add pops of color with accessories to your outfit.
When choosing white, remember that there are dozens of shades of white: from arctic to a creamy almost yellow white. For maximum impact, make sure your whites match.
