Every colour has a certain meaning. White signifies purity, completeness and innocence. It also implies growth, peace and creativity. In the world of fashion, white and its myriad shades has always remained the most popular colour.
HOW WHITE BECAME A TIMELESS FASHION TREND
White outfits first came into prominence when in 1840 Queen Victoria wore a white gown on her wedding day. Ever since, wedding gowns are primarily white. Some fashion houses use pastel shades but white still remains the obvious choice of modern brides.
WHITE, WHITE EVERYWHERE
When you want to wear something that’ll match any accessory, any occasion and at any place; then everybody’s favourite choice is white. It looks great in numerous forms:
The quintessential top
Whether strappy or full sleeved, a white top has universal appeal. It’ll look great over casual jeans, skirts or formal trousers.
The most versatile dress
Always keep one white dress in your closet. When you are in a hurry and can’t think what to wear; pull out the dress and wear it without hesitation. It becomes a casual dress when you simple jewellery and accessories. For a different look try a beaded ethnic necklace and chunky bangles. If you can’t be bothered, the white dress will still look gorgeous without any accessories.
White is sexy
A white mini is just second to a black mini when you think of “sexy”. Keep one of these for a special day-long date. A pair of silver bangles, delicate pearl studs and a leather handbag is all that is required to complete this attractive picture.
Anytime T shirt
We are always wearing these aren’t we? In fact, for most of us the more white T shirts we have the more we need them! They look fantastic, never become out-dated and go well with any kind of accessories.
A white sari is very popular with Indian and non-Indian women too, especially when they are attending formal dos. Here, Priyanka Chopra (the star of Quantico) looks stunning in a white net sari.
White kurti (long top)
Kurti or long top is the Indian equivalent of the T shirt. A white kurti is usually considered casual wear. But you can still zing it up by accessorising with silver or pearl bracelet and earrings for a special occasion.
What you wear can affect your mood. The colour white has remained a timeless fashion trend because it invokes positive thoughts and makes you feel joyful.
