‘Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman’ said Coco Chanel. With Holi just around the corner, followed by lovely, long summer months, the ‘need’ to own a range of white clothing has increased. Splashes of colour against a backdrop of white is totally stunning, especially for ‘Holi’! So, as you can guess, this post is going to be all about inspiring you, nagging you, even pushing you to get some more ‘whitey whites’ to your collection.
A very important point to remember is that the whites have to be at their ‘whitest’ best for the colours to stand out and shout out ‘welcome spring’. From time immemorial, the fabric detergent companies have been educating us on getting pure whites looking their best. Remember the jingle, ‘Washing powder Nirma…..’. Have a look to refresh your memory:
Having lots of whites hanging in your wardrobe is almost mandatory for this time of the year. A white kurta paired with any sort of pants, trousers is so calming and cooling. So, here we have some inspirational dresses for you. Get inspired!
White clothes are brilliant and so important for the warmer months….People with dark skin, olive skin, or tanned skin (most of us in India would fall into one of these categories) can wear white effortlessly, which is a great thing, isn’t it? Flowing kurtas, lovely soft linen shirts or even long layered skirts…all in white….the list is endless. Let your imagination run wild and get the calm, serene, cool and classy look with your ‘whites’ collection!
‘Hello warmer months’, let’s shout out together…
