Heidi KlumIf you follow the rules of wearing whites, you are in the clear after this weekend! White is such an amazing no-color color. With a bit of golden, sun-kissed skin, white just gives that extra glow in the summer. It really does become like a natural fill! I recommend a milky white tone for those who want to skip the golden suntan and just wear white. A milky white is a warmer hue and is suitable for more skin types than pure white.

Must-Have Whites

A plain, white T
Choose a white T-shirt that fits slightly loose or simply go up a size. Layer the T-shirt with a fitted white tank top underneath, and make sure the tank is long enough to cover below the stomach. The two layers will make the white seem more brilliant, and the tank underneath will also help to minimize any bulges that we absolutely don't want creeping out of the T-shirt!

A classic, cotton men's style button-up shirt
Try one from Club Monaco or Brooks Brothers. The button-up shirt elevates the look from just a simple T-shirt, and to keep the look effortless and simply stylish, I would suggest rolling the sleeves first and then pushing up to the elbow! Wear a white top with classic denim or a pair of skinny jeans.

White camisoleA pretty white lace bra or a lace camisole
Wear one underneath, like this camisole from Affinitas Intimates, so you can just barely see the lace.

White jeans
These can be tricky for anyone who doesn't have very thin legs, but you can still make it happen! Buy them really skinny (almost like leggings), and roll the legs up just above ankle. Choose a larger fitting top like a tunic or oversized T-shirt that is long enough to cover just below the hips!

Keeping your outfit one color is also flattering to the figure. White jeans with a milky white top is a great look for summer and keeps from breaking your body up into sections with contrasting colors.
