This week I bring you another trend report. As I mentioned in my last post, I want to start the year by sharing with you how you can incorporate the top 2015 trends into your business wear. I am allergic to the black pantsuit and am always looking for an alternative. So the next trend I am going to focus on is all white.
You’ve probably heard people say to you, “Don’t wear white after labor day”. Well forget that advice – this look isn’t confined by that rule! This is a trend and color that looks great year round. Everything goes with it and because it’s monochromatic, you will look longer and taller!
There is a little bit of art to wearing all white. Let me share with you a few tips on how you can master this look:
- Pay attention to the fabric. For winter, choose heavier fabrics like tweeds and knits, incorporating silks and satins. For summer, light fabrics like denim, linens, cotton, lace trims and silk are best.
- Break up the single color palette by mixing different shades of white.
- Accessorize. Bring in fun patterns and colors to finish off your look.
Here are two outfits to help visualize this trend:
You are now ready to be bold and rock your all white look. Wear it with confidence and you will command everyone’s attention when you enter your next meeting.
I love wearing white even in the winter. I only tend to watch if it’s a wet day I might skip the white pants. Splashes while walking from shoes or other are very hard to avoid on those days. I feel wearing white is unique and normally makes you stand out. I once wore white at a corporate networking event and I had more people than usual come up to me asking me what I do. It’s a good networking color! Thanks for sharing, Alex.
