How To Wear White-On-White

Dîner en Blanc Brisbane is just around the corner and what better way to get started than sorting out your outfit?  The whole idea for the event is to wear white and join thousands for a chic picnic in a public space – the location is revealed at the last minute.  This year will be Dîner en Blanc’s 5th year in Brisbane, so make sure you register well before the event on October 22!  To get you organised leading up to the event, I’ve put together a simple white outfit to help you draw inspiration for your own Dîner en Blanc ensemble!

Wearing white can be a little scary for those who wouldn’t necessarily go out of their way to buy or reach for it.  You might be cautious of getting your outfit stained what to wear underneath or if it suits your skin tone.  Luckily, white is one of those shades that looks amazing on anyone and it’s perfect to wear during the warmer months – it looks fresh, elegant and crisp.

Here are some tips on how to pull of white for any occasion:

  • Wearing white is all about confidence, while still remaining careful. Put those rules about where to wear white to bed and embrace it! Have fun with your look, experiment and don’t be shy to try to try something new.
  • White looks amazing when you add dimension by adding layers. This could be adding a long sheer vest to a dress, incorporating a belt to add shape or simply by adding a cute jacket with your top and skirt combo. Having that extra dimension will add more to your look and will make it stand out.
  • Just like adding dimension, playing around with different textures is also fun when experimenting with white. Try adding a pleated skirt, a jacket with embroidery or even add a floral headpiece.
  • When it comes to accessories, metallic accents are perfect for white outfits! Gold and rose gold look beautiful with white while ensuring they’re not too much of a distraction. When it comes to shoes, neutral tones are the way to go – nude, tan, gold. This is the same for bags, belts and headwear.
