Plus Size Outfit Ideas – White Nights

I am most comfortable in jeans, so I tend to wear them all the time.  In my opinion, jeans can be dressed up very easily.  So when I am headed out for a night on the town or even to a dinner date, there is a good chance I’m wearing jeans.

{Side note: My current favorite jeans are jeggings from Torrid, specifically their medium wash jeggings and dark wash jeggings.  People have told me that I’ve changed their lives recommending these!  I’ll do a post on jeans soon.}

Although I wear a lot of black, like a lot of black, I love white for evenings, including “winter white,” also known as off-white or ivory.  There is something very chic about a white blazer or a white flow-y top.  Just add some shiny or sparkly details in gold (or silver), amazing shoes, and an interesting clutch, and you’re good to go.

Things to consider when wearing white:

  1. It really is ok after Labor Day.  Really.
  2. Know your skin tone.  For example, I look very ill in an ivory t-shirt.  If you are cool-toned stick to whiter white and warm-toned skin should choose more ivory.
  3. Tip # 2 only applies to colors right next to your face/neck/chest.  Meaning a bright white top with a warm-toned scarf works fine for warm skin tones because the white garment is not right next to the face.  And I can wear ivory slacks without anyone asking if I have the flu because the pants are not next to my face.

Are you warm or cool?

If you aren’t sure about your skin tone find 2 pieces of fabric (garment, towel, sheet, anything will do), one ivory and one bright white.  Stand in front of a mirror in a well lit room (preferably natural light, like near a window) draping both fabrics across your chest and shoulders.  Take your time looking at how your face looks with each one.  You should have a clear winner pretty quickly, but if you are struggling to decide, ask someone to look at they fabrics with you.  They will likely be able to decide right away.

I used to help my customers learn about their best colors and skin tone in my boutique years ago.  The majority of people would look at me like I was crazy when I would suggest it, but would agree to try. Then as soon as we would get started with the white vs ivory, I would see a look of surprise on their faces as they realized that there really was a big difference.
