Wedding Season: White Dress So Out- White Suit So In

When it comes to tradition, May signifies wedding season. It is when people are searching for something old, something new, and I think something blue if I am not mistaken? As exciting as the preparations might be on your ‘special day,’ it is the right dress that seems to send brides to be into whack jobs. If you admire tradition then go ahead and be boring because for 2018! It is all about ditching that white dress so out-while a white suit is so in.

Apparently, if someone wears a leather jacket over a dress at their wedding it causes shock waves. I don’t get why people act so silly oh my god did you see that? Are you literally living under a rock people? I think overacting seems to be a trend so let’s cut to the chase. You don’t have to be getting married to rock a white suit you can just show up looking fabulous.

Origin of the Colour

White represents purity, innocence, wholeness, and completion. The colour at its most complete and pure is the colour of perfection. The psychological meaning of white is new beginnings, of wiping the slate clean, so to speak. It is the blank canvas waiting to be written upon with your words of wisdom. While white may not be stimulating to the senses, it opens the way for the creation of anything the mind can conceive.

White contains an equal balance of all the colours of the spectrum, representing both the positive and negative aspects of all colours. Its basic feature is equality, implying fairness and impartially, neutrality and independence. The colour itself gives off a feeling of brand new and brilliance which can implicate a positive emotion.

Women’s suits   

  In the first half of the 20th century, the skirted suit became the common daytime city costume for women, in the workplace and out; dressmaker suits featured softer fabrics and feminine details, and cocktail suits were worn for semi-formal occasion in mid-century.

Under the influence for Dress for Success, working women’s uniform of a skirted suit, tailored skirt, and floppy tie evolved in the 1970s and 1980s. Pantsuits were introduced by designer Andre’ Courreges in 1964 but were gradually accepted as formal business attire.

In the modern century, the suit for women has become a dressy version of the power suit. And has the ultimate versatile styling all rolled into the right style to showcase at your next meeting, or dinner party. 30 percent off accessories, to go with that gorgeous white suit.

        Power Suit

To really elevate your work wardrobe, add a white power suit to the mix. It defiantly doesn’t have to be basic when it comes to a fresh tone. By sticking with a tailored look, it can come off truly polished and well put together. Adding a few colourful accessories can contrast perfectly with the white crisp suit. You will look like the hot boss lady you were always meant to be. 

         After Work Hours

When the hours are done and evening hits your face like a beautifully lit lamp post on a gorgeous city street. All you desire is to get crazy with your girls and have that much-needed drink and gossip about Cindy from accounting who couldn’t stop eating those pastries earlier. Did you see her when she talked? I felt like I got crumbs sprayed all over my face when she spoke. Slip out of those sensible shoes from the office and into the clicking heels and sparkly clutch for the best night on the town ever!  

        Contrasting Print

If you are that cool girl that strays from tradition and really enjoys mixing things up a bit, then you will gravitate to this look. Instead of a plain white suit, try contrasting prints. It gives off a I just woke up like this relaxed feel while still being crowd pleasing. Less is more, so don’t overdue the accessories. Let the beautiful print speak for itself. 

         Stop Traffic

While it is warming up a bit in some areas of the country. You can still show off your impeccable style. Try a cigarette ankle trouser paired with a white retro styled blazer and a midriff crop white blouse for some daytime sex appeal. By pairing this look with nude heels, you can rock Fashion Week, or just look dam good shopping. You only live, once right? Why not go out looking stunning and stop traffic.

             Not The Typical Bride

If you are not the typical bride, then this style of suit is made for you. Instead of searching for that perfect gown to showcase at your wedding try a cream suit. It is not completely white but still a show stopping shade to say the least especially, for this amazing time of year. Go for some detailed finishes like a Victorian look meets Parisian delight. You can be that celebrity on the red carpet at your own wedding for sure.  

Considering this for your next weeding? Whether you are the bride to be or just going to support another bride, this style can be super chic if you work it right. Replace tradition with a fashion forward white suit.
