Ways to wear white

March 1, 2017

Just like those beautiful Andalusian Pueblos Blancos the colour white can have tremendous impact on the eye. The same goes for your wardrobe, ladies. Unless you’re blessed with a beautiful skin-tone that matches every colour under the sun, it can sometimes seem right to avoid certain shades, for fear of looking washed-out or mismatched.

White is often one of those shades. But The Leisure Lounge is here to let you know that you don’t have to wait until your wedding day to look wonderful in white!

I’m dreaming of a white summer


When the heat wave arrives we’ve got to make the most of it right? Want to accentuate your golden goddess look? A white summer dress is a must-have for every woman’s wardrobe. Your options are endless, but we love a lace design and floaty skirt, and we’re seeing them everywhere. Cute, comfortable and perfect for showing off your sun-kissed skin, team with colourful sandals or chunky wedges for a style that’s ready for the town or the beach.

Gents, you can get involved too, although wearing all white may be taking it a step too far – we know you love a 90s boy band tune but let’s leave that style in the 20th century where it belongs. Try pastel-coloured shorts matched with a white, lightweight short-sleeved shirt, ideal for hot summer days and nights at home or on holiday. Keep it simple with a pair of white plimsolls for the “I look good in everything and I don’t even try” kind of style.

It’ll be all white on the night

It’s not just a summer’s day shade; white can be used to dress up any dull outfit so it’s ready for that special day or night out. We’ve all got at least one blazer tucked away in the wardrobe, but forget the black pinstriped Super Nanny style. This season it’s all about the sleeveless blazer, and you’re sure to get it right with white!

Full of confidence? Try a smart black crop-top with skin-tight skinny jeans and a pair of over-sized white sunglasses. Just about any style of shoe complements this glamorous get-up. A white sleeveless blazer takes this outfit from standard chic to daytime diva, level – certified fashionista.

These heels were made for wowing!


The first time you saw them, you thought they were part of a 70s fancy dress outfit. You wanted to hate them. You tried so hard to hate them. But it’s time to admit it – chunky platform heels look great on every girl, and you want a piece of that! Get them in white to add the fashion-mastermind style to your attire. Going to a fiesta, street party or open-air party this summer? These standout shoes are all you need to be bang on-trend. Pair with a long fringed cardi and denim mini-shorts for the hundred percent hipster look.

Whether you’re after a whole wardrobe refresh or just a new pair of shoes to add to the collection, looking good is simple – wear white!
