4. THE PERFECT FIGURE: Don’t wear all white if you want to appear slimmer. Wearing a Little white dress and want your waist to appear smaller? Try adding a black (colored) belt around your natural waist which draws the eyes in and gives you the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure.

5. NO WEDDING DISASTER: Even though white is in season, never ever wear white to a wedding (yes, even if it is a pant suit) as you don’t want to appear like you are trying to upstage the bride.

6. SHOE GAME: White Shoes are not the easiest to wear as they can make feet appear larger. Tip: Stick to pointies and sandals. Avoid white wedges as they will make legs and feet appear chunkier.

Still finding it difficult to find the perfect white shoe, opt for colors in metallic or nudes that give a cohesive look.

7.WHITE SUBSTITUTES: Not too thrilled about white? Try colors in the off-white family such as ivory, eggshell or oyster.

The elegance and sophistication derived from donning white pieces can never be underestimated and though this white may not be your first choice of color when it comes to outfit selection, it is certainly worth the risk.
