How to Wear White by Alex Perry

Esteemed fashion designer Alex Perry is encouraging people to wear white with confidence this season. Follow his top tips on how to effortlessly pull off the trend this summer.

While the thought of wearing and caring for head-to-toe white may instill fear in many, Alex Perry has teamed up with Electrolux to help everyone feel confident wearing white, by employing a few simple tricks. Here he shares his style advice.

Learn from Liz

Liz Hurley loves her skinny white pants with a heel and singlet top. It's a really great summery look. Depending on your style, you can wear wide leg pants, skinny jeans, or ankle grazers. They all look great.

The White Blazer

This is a fantastic piece for both men and women. Team it with some well cut jeans and it's instant chic.

The White Lace Dress

Not only reserved for your wedding day, a white lace dress is one of my favourite looks this summer. It's sexy and modern, but also has a touch of old glamour.

Flatter Yourself

Don't be afraid of white. There is a wide misconception that white isn't flattering but in fact an all white outfit can actually help to elongate the body. It's fresh and can make you look healthy and youthful - try a beautiful white shirt and pant combo. For a special occasion, team with a fake tan ahead of the event and wash it off. Don't go too dark, a light or medium shade looks best.

Model Behaviour

There's nothing worse than seeing makeup on your clothes or bronzer on a white neck line. When you're getting dressed, wrap a chiffon change scarf around your head, put your garment on, then whip it off. This is how models do it. If you're doing your makeup in your whites, pop some tissues around your neckline so the remnants fall on the tissue and your clothes are still clean.

Forget Stain Pain

If you happen to spill something on your whites, get some water or soda water on the stain immediately so it doesn't set in the fibres. As soon as you can, wash the garment in your premium washing machine.
