From the Kardashians to the Kapoors, white has always been a wardrobe staple, a go-to colour for any event. But white on white hasn’t exactly been a favourite, until now of course. And we would want to give full credit to Jeetendra who brought the all-white ensemble into vogue back then. But careful, doing too much of a Jeetendra could have you on the Worst Dressed list. You have to be smart while pairing multiple white things together. Be a date, or an evening party, here are some allwhite looks that can get you those extra brownie points.

Meghavi Suthar Professional

‘Minimal, yet elegant’

LOOK: Casual or college look

I am wearing

A white backless top, a nautical maxi skirt with side slit. It looks classic and mostly goes on any skin and body type.

Why white and white?

It looks effortlessly stylish. You can use it as a blank canvas for your favourite jewellery. There is no wrong way to style white on white, as it is always classic and never out of fashion. Also, it is scientifically proven that white colour reflects light and sunrays are absorbed.

Way to go

You can pair a white crop top or tee with white ripped shorts or jeans with a brown belt, brown footwear and brown bag.

Call your mom! Stains are the worst part about maintaining whites. So when you get one, wash it directly with the detergent solution and avoid water before washing.

Accessorise it well

As mentioned earlier, you can use any statement piece on an all-white outfit. Be experimental.

Mahnaz Damania Professional

White is hot, really hot

LOOK: Indo-western

I am wearing

Summertime begs for easy silhouettes, stuff that won’t make you feel sweaty day long. So this look takes care of that. Palazzos and a cotton spaghetti strap with a float throw-on top (in case you are on a date and the AC is on a blast).

Why white on white?

Sometimes, you can get it all wrong with white on white. It has to be done right. If styled sensibly and accessorised well, you can be the superstar. White just has a light, cool calm about it.

Way to go

Choose a shade of white that suits your skin tone. Not everyone can wear bright, crisp white, but fortunately, there’s a shade of white for every skin type. For example, if you have cool skin tone, wear classically bright white, and for warm skin tones, choose cream or ivory whites.

I try to do as much damage control as possible. If it’s a greasy/oily stain, don’t spread it, just put some talcum powder or salt to soak it up. And hope that a bleach wash can bring it back to the original. If nothing works, just try your best to lighten the stain.

Accessorise it well

I like to add a dash of colour with my whites, so turquoise stones or bright wooden bangles, chunky bracelets, bright-threaded beaded anklets are my go-to accessories. I also like to accessorise with Indian silver jewellery.

Brinda Parikh Professional

‘White can be formal, too’

LOOK: It’s official

I am wearing

White shirt paired with mosaic print trousers, and I have accessorised it with a chunky neck-piece and a sling bag. I have completed the look with white peep-toe heels and a slick of Russian red lippy (or any bold lip shade). That is the only makeup required with this.

Why white on white?

Trends come and go. A little while ago, we have the contrasting-colours trend (colour blocking, for example), then experts brought in the nude/beige palette. Now, we have the all-white trend. And if you can carry your white-on-white, then why not? Colours like white and lilac are soothing and makes you feel fresh.

Way to go

If you choose to wear a single colour, make sure to create clear separation between each piece. The easiest way to do this is by mixing up your shades. There is nothing like, you have to stick to only pure white – shades such as off-white, cream, ivory, eggshell and light beige complement white perfectly and will help create the style we desire.

Soak the stained outfit in warm water and use mild cleansing products. Harsh chemicals can lead to more damage.

Accessorise it well

If it is a summer get-together, pair feather accessories with a one-piece along with high heels – make it perfect with nude peach makeup shades. When pairing up with shorts or tapered pants, go bold with bright lip shades and nail paints – a good neckpiece is like cherry in the top.

Kartika Bhardwaj Professional

Why can’t I go traditionally all-white?

LOOK: Traditional Indian

I am wearing

It is a simple and easy-to-go look. I have put on a white kurti with white leggings and sexy white heels. Orange flower earrings and red lipstick complete the look.

Why white on white?

There is a clean, fresh and contemporary feel to an all-white ensemble. Sometimes while everyone else is busy making statements in eye-catching colours and different patterns – white can make to stand out in the crowd.

Way to go

I love the traditional all-white look because you can pair it up with a variety of earrings and other accessories, too.

Wearing white and maintaining it is a difficult task. But even if you do stain your dress, quickly wash it nicely with water.

Accessorise it well White is a universal colour and it can be accessorised with bright ornaments such as peach, sea green, yellow, etc.

QUICK TIPS Always match your underwear and bra to your skin tone. Avoid lace, printed, and white underpinnings at home.

• Try out more colourful accessories, like match your skin colour, or choose metallics or bright ones.

• Wash whites separately

• If whites have started to fade, use a specialist detergent that’s designed to restore their shine or use lemon juice and white distilled vinegar

• Similarly, you can differentiate through texture, for example — mix white pieces in leather, cotton, nylon and linen to keep your look visually rich.

• Don’t use bleach to remove stains as white is also a colour and using chlorine bleach on white clothing will remove the white color from the fabric.

• Check iron settings and avoid heat that is too high. Clothes can scorch and that is very difficult to remove.

• Use the hottest water recommended for the fabric to help remove body oils and grime that can dull the fabric.Read more at:http://www.marieprom.co.uk/long-evening-dresses | http://www.marieprom.co.uk/short-prom-dresses-uk
