Dominican Diary 5: Clean and Crisp

It’s no secret that I love white clothing and when worn with a tan well that’s just my favourite time of year!

I bought this Missguided bardot dress with a boho print in the middle and which runs along the edges, last year. Every time I’ve worn it I always seem to channel my inner 70s style by teaming it with my black fringed sandals from River Island and an occult necklace from Primark. I just love the look especially when it’s completed with a little duffle or cross body bag.

When I wore this in Dominican Republic I wanted to wear the look again as white looks sophisticated, effortless and clean cut. I decided to wear the same fringe sandals but decided to put part of my hair up to create a softer look and to not allow the humidity to influence my hair.

The thing about white clothing for me is that it just looks elegant, grown up and timeless. I feel that white clothing create chic outfits with minimalism. A double white look is one of my favourites to channel.

This look is one of my favourite holiday looks because I felt sophisticated and a lot taller than I actually am. The metallic creased floral top from Zara is cut beautifully along the edges of my shoulder and the floaty and sheer effect of it teamed against a very white a-line skirt ( from New Look) looks more like the high end of the high street. I decided to wear my silver mules as I quite like that the silver metallic shoes are clashing with the rusted gold within my top, I also love that the mules make my legs appear longer and stops the look from appearing too rigid and formal.

I feel that white is a polished colour and if you pick timeless pieces of clothing like an a-line skirt, tank top, wide trousers and shift dress in this hue, you’ll probably find that you’ll always come back to these pieces for your everyday wardrobe and for your travel closet.

I chose to take these two white outfits as they both gave me a really clean look as well as giving me two different silhouettes (and looks for that matter).

I know many people who don’t like to wear white whilst they have a tan but I personally find that this colour gives me a lot of confidence,  it offers simplicity and I love how it highlights my tan making it look fresh. I’m probably more drawn to white clothing as I love the contrast it offers to my hair. But for holidays it is definitely a colour I like to wear a lot and it reminds me of summer – so embrace it!

This is my final Dominican Diary ( does this mean the holiday’s really over?) and I have to say that the country did not disappoint, especially with all the perfect blogging back drops ;)!
