How to Survive an All White Outfit

 

Hey guys, it’s Hannah! I’ve always had a great admiration for a good all-white look. To me, it looks so effortless yet so daring all in one. How do people do it? How can they wear head-to-toe white and not get it dirty? Who are these magical people ?!

Well, this summer- I want to be one of those magical people who can rock an all-white outfit and KEEP it all white. So in efforts to figure out how exactly to do that, I did some research and attempted to survive an all-white look. Here are my tips:

The Under Garments 

For something so effortless looking, there’s a lot of effort that goes into an all-white look. First step- the undergarments. Once upon a time, a good friend of mine in high school wore bright neon pink underwear under her white jeans and I’ve been hyper-aware of not making the same mistake ever since.

Nude/flesh colored underwear are a closet staple for me. White underwear could work too, but I don’t want to take any chances. I really like these and these! Similarly, you want to find the perfect bra, too. I love how chic the black bra under a white top looks, but sometimes you just want everything to blend. For me, that means nipple covers! They stick right on, work with backless and low cut tops and are super comfortable. They give you good coverage without being constricted in a bra!

If nipple covers aren’t your thing, then I’d suggest this bra here! It looks great under a t-shirt and is very comfortable!

Stain Remover Pen

So, the last time I wore white jeans, I ended up spilling coffee on them about 5 minutes after I left my apartment. Needless to say, I should have been carrying around one of these stain remover pens. I’m sure you’ve seen or heard about them before but let me tell you from personal experience- THEY WORK. I now carry one in my work bag so I’m always prepared- white outfit or not.

At the same time, remember that it’s just a stain! If the stain remover pen doesn’t work, some good detergent (like this one) will. Also, try to avoid (as best as you can) anything that might stain! So be careful while you eat and, in my case, drink coffee.

 

 

Know Your Fabrics

Fabrics like cotton and denim are pretty easy to keep clean or get clean. My biggest tip for the perfect white t-shirt (which you might remember from this post here) is to buy a pack of men’s white t-shirts! That way, if you do get a really bad stain- you can just throw it away and not feel bad.

I avoid clothes that are ‘dry-clean’ only like the plague. I ain’t got time for that! At the same time, be sure to read the cleaning instructions on the tag of your clothes before you wash them. You’d think I would have learned that by now, but my pink dyed socks would say otherwise. Ooops. (PS: obviously don’t forget deodorant! LOL!)

Do you guys have any tips for surviving an all-white outfit? Please leave a comment down below! Keep your eye out for my post next week (yep, I’m going to be contributing once a week now! YAY!) and have a great weekend!

    I’ve never worn all white before, I have worn all black though. I liked that tip about keeping a stain pen around. I’m a messy person so wearing all white is a big risk for me.

    I love wearing white, but I do find that I have to be a lot more aware of my surroundings not to stain it. The stain remover pen sounds like a great idea!

    Hahaha same! I don’t know how everyone keeps their all white looks soo clean! I personally try to avoid eating foods or drinking drinks that may stain/get on my clothes! And yesss to nipple covers! I never really though about wearing them with all white outfits, but that’s actually a brilliant idea!

    Great post! I have the same issue myself when it comes to all white. I love the look and brightness of it, but I drink tomato soup daily and I’m clumsy lol! I don’t know if I’ll ever pull an all white look off but I love the way it looks!

    Hey Hannah! Little off the subject, but I wondered if you would consider doing a post about how you style your short hair. I’ve been short for a few years now and my go to is curling with my straightener while leaving the ends out, but I love the natural texture of yours. When my hair was long I almost never had to touch it because it waved naturally on it’s own. Since cutting it short, my hair doesn’t do much of anything without some work, and I’ve lost some of that natural texture that I love. So if you have some products that help you retain that or a particular technique for how you style, ( even if it’s only replicating it for us) it would greatly appreciated. 😉 Have a beautiful day!

      Really enjoy reading your posts and blogs! I would also love to read a blog on how you style your hair! I’ve had short hair for a year or so now and love it but still struggle with it sometimes. Yours always looks so naturally wavey. Thank you!!
