Cool Whites for Your Warm Weather Wardrobe


Memorial Day used to mark the start of the season when self-respecting ladies could wear white once again. That fashion convention has pretty much been blasted by today's "anything-goes" attitude, but we figured now was as good a time as any to mention this perennial summer favorite. Just remember...

  • White won't make you look bigger - it's the fit, cut and fabric that matters, not the color.

  • White won't get dirty after one wear. Unless you live with my dog, in which case, your whites will get covered in mud and drool in under 5 seconds. But that's what washing machines are for, right?

  • White will keep you cooler. It reflects sunlight...or something. Trust me, you'll feel cooler wearing it.

  • White will match everything in your wardrobe. Winter has black; summer has white. You can't go wrong.


Shown above are just a few ways to wear white for less green:
