Holiday traditions include wearing white clothes for Shavuot. But even
apart from that, when it gets hot, wearing white makes sense. Wearing light
white cottons seems the civilized thing to do on steamy summer nights. In
Israel, the weather calls for summer clothes almost year round and there are
very few days when white is inappropriate.
But sensible or not, a lot of
women shy away from wearing white dresses not only because white gets dirty so
easily but also because some believe it adds kilos to their appearance and may
be too bright and attention drawing.
That said, remember that it’s also a
neutral and versatile color that is easy to accessories and match with other
pieces. So, which is your favorite way to wear white? Will you brave the spring
trend and try it out this holiday? A few no-nos
❖ Do not wear a white dress to a
wedding. The only woman who really should wear a white dress to a wedding is the
bride. It’s fine if your ensemble has white in it.
❖ Wear the correct
shoes: Heavy black pumps paired with lightweight white dresses or pants can be
an odd mixture. Better choices include natural toned or white sandals.
Keep away from white clothes in city environments. Between buses, taxis, dirty
seats and kids holding sweets, it would be a miracle for a white dress or slacks
to make it through the day unscathed. This is one of the principal reasons you
see quite a few metropolitan females sticking to black ensembles – not merely
are they slimming, they do not show dirt so significantly.
