How to Wear White: The Indian and The Western Way


Many people are hesitant to wear white; maybe they feel it is hard to pull off or way too easy to stain. But white outfits can give your wardrobe and your look a refreshing twist.

Darker clothes have a reputation for being universally flattering and easy to wear-making us stick to darker hues.

But this contrasting counterpart is as wearable and chic as any other colour. There are a ton of fashion rules surrounding this colour.

However, wearing white as a foundation layer is an impactful way to ease the trend. A white-on-white ensemble can instantly make the heads turn.

Adding pops of colour with footwear and accessories will make you rock any look.

Western Look-book

Rock an Oxford Shirt

A buttoned-up white shirt with a fitted tank and pleated skirt or a fitted bottom look effortlessly fresh. You can opt to tie the front into a low knot to define your waist.

Bold hoop earrings or golden layered necklace, bold sunglasses and a chunky belt will heighten the style factor.

This look will serve as the perfect canvas for your accessories. You can go low-key with relaxed cotton. If the fit is perfect, you just can’t go wrong.

Keep It Short and Chic

White shorts can make any simple outfit look polished. Pick a tailored pair of shorts with a high waist to elevate a casual summer look.

For a preppy touch, top it with a white tee and a pastel checkered oversized blazer. A dark bag and sandals will finish the look and balance the brightness.

An All-white Look

Nothing says ‘Confidence’ like an all-white look. Going monochrome by wearing all white will make getting dressed all easy.

The classic combo of jeans and a tank looks good in any colour, and a white-on-white is striking for summer.

A wide-legged denim and crochet detail on the top will fancy up the formula. The shoes and bags and dangling earrings will take this look to the next level.

The Perfect Summer Look

Everybody loves LBD, but now is the time to go on the complete opposite end of the spectrum by appointing white dresses as the new go-to.

This one-and-done piece will do all the work for you-all that’s left are the finishing touches. You can pair a white dress with chunky platform sandals for a sporty vibe.

Alternatively, pair them with heels and a structured handbag for a date-night look.
