It takes a little confidence to wear white, so we've put together this style guide to give you ideas on how to seamlessly integrate it into your wardrobe and pair with your favourite outfits.
Why you should add a white bag to your wardrobe?
There are so many reasons to add a white bag to your wardrobe. They're crisp, clean, elegant and once you know a few style tips, they become so easy to wear. If you're trying to amp up the luxe factor of your outfit, the good news is that a white bag can look effortlessly expensive too.
How to wear white bag
Here our some style ideas to get you started if you want to take the plunge but aren't quite sure how to style a white purse.
1. All white monochrome look: Whether its an all-white mini or maxi dress, or a cute white playsuit, make heads turn with a pretty white purse. You can play with different textures in your clothing to break up the all-white look too - try fringing, lace or beading too for something different.
2. Nearly all white: The twist here is to use a feature colour like a navy or red belt and shoes and keep everything else white for a real pop!
3. Polka dots: Keep things simple with a black and white polka dot dress and a crisp, elegant white shoulder bag. Chic, stylish and a little French if we dare say.
4. Colourful Dress: The trick here is to find a brightly patterned dress but with a white background! This way your bag will suit your outfit and doesn't risk blending in too much to your dress.
How to wear a white bag in winter?
Styling a white bag for winter can be a fun and creative challenge. Here are a few tips to help you style your white bag for the winter season:
Pair it with dark colours: Since white is a bright colour, it can easily stand out when paired with dark colours such as black, navy, and deep burgundy. A white bag can add a pop of contrast to an otherwise dark winter outfit.
Add texture: To make your white bag more appropriate for the winter season, choose one that has some texture or detail to it. A white leather bag with a crocodile texture or a white bag with fur or faux fur trim can add some warmth and interest to your winter look.
Choose winter-friendly materials: While a white canvas or linen bag may be perfect for summer, it may not be the best choice for winter. Instead, choose a white bag made from winter-friendly materials such as leather or suede.
Mix and match with winter accessories: You can also style your white bag for winter by mixing and matching it with other winter accessories such as scarves, hats, and gloves. For example, a white bag paired with a black scarf and gloves can create a chic and stylish winter look.
