The Power of the Color White and 3 Must Haves in White

 

The power that the color white carries with it, is unparalleled within the spectrum of colors. White represents

+ Divine Power

+ Newness, modernity, and innovation

+ Innocence

+ Strength

+ Affluence & Refinement

+ Elegance

+ Positive Energy

While influencers of fashion history have emphasized on the importance of the 'Little Black Dress' as a staple for every girl's closet, I give the honor to the 'Power White Dress'.

Every design adorns the wearer more in color white than in color black. There is a reason that the affluent and high-society opt for the color white to represent their status and lifestyle - wearing white to social and sports events such as brunch, golf, tennis, and polo match and using white for their home interior and possessions, remember the white curtains and flowers in the Great Gatsby?

 

What is more, is that every color in the spectrum stands stronger and more influential if it is used next to the color white. Hence, using any color as an accent color in a white look creates the most vibrant, modern, and powerful aesthetic for that look.

Just notice the distinguishing look that the cobalt blue bag I am wearing in this white style has created.

In this post, I share with you some of my most favorite styles that are available to shop now in three clothing items that you must-have in the color white,

1. White Jacket

2. White Dress

3. White Skirt

1. White Jacket

The white suit is the power suit that triumphs every other suit in every season. Make sure to own one and if you can afford it, invest in a highly tailored one such as the ones from Alexander McQueen. Since the white blazer is a classic one and available in almost every season, you can wait to buy Alexander McQueen white blazers at a discounted price on sale or from outlet stores such as The Outnet.

Below are some of my most favorite white suits that are currently available, just click on the link to take you the online store that sells the look.

2. White Dress

There are four colors that I would wear on a first date and those are white, baby pink, fuchsia, and red. Each of these colors subconsciously associates a certain meaning to your intentions,

+ white: power, grandeur, confidence, positive energy, innocence, eternal, marriage

+ baby pink: flirtatious, young, sweet, romantic

+ red and fuchsia: exotic, sexuality, adventurous, freedom

 The key attribute of the color white, making it the superior among the three, is that the color white can convey the attached attributes of baby pink and red if you chose the color of your lipstick and accessories in baby pink or red. 

To convey sexuality and provocativeness with a white dress just match it with the right shade of red or fuchsia lipstick or perhaps a pair of red heels, and to convey sweetness and youth wear your white dress with a pink lipstick or a pair of baby pink heels.

 

And to convey power and strength wear your white dress with diamonds like Grace Kelly does in the movie 'To Catch a Thief'.

3. White Skirt

I personally LOVE Balmain skirts: 

+ they are very feminine and have a tailored structure with a curvy bell shape

+ they are always made in high-quality and strong fabrics

+ they are embellished with beautiful buttons

+ they have strong construction because they are always lined - something that is missing in so many other skirts from other designers to cut costs
