From the Office to the Beach House

March has arrived and Spring is just around the corner, so I'd say it's not too early to start thinking about beach trips. I know nowadays, women are always on the go! So, having a perfect go-to spring dress that you can always rely on is an essential this season. One of the must have it colors this upcoming spring season is white. It is a fresh,clean, crisp color that can easilly take you from the office to the beach house! As a fashionista, I often hear from all women how relunctant they are in wearing white, as it tends to bring too much attention to an area. But, if styled correctly, it can convey a contemporary, chic, and youthful look for all occassions.

For office hours, keep it tailored and simple. The white shift dress is slightly boxy, which is perfect for the Spring season, so for work, add a blazer to add structure and power. Details, Details, Details! Add a small pop of color with the colorblocked sandals and coral bag for a subtle statement. My tip for wearing white is to keep everything subtle and to make sure the white garment fits perfectly. White can draw attention to problem areas on our bodies when it clings too tightly. For a weekend at the beach house, add a floppy hat and your favorite eyewear. White is a great color to act as a blank canvas, so play up your shoes and beach bag with pops of print and color! To tone this dress down and make it more casual, throw on a baggy chambray button up on top. This gives the illusion that your dress is now a skirt! Remember, playing with layers can create entirely different outfits. If you're still hesitant of white, start out with tops or shorts and work your way up to dresses and blazers. Good Luck.
