Nadine’s how-to: How to style a white dress

White dresses are an essential part of a woman’s wardrobe. They’re great for the whole year whether you’re enjoying a social occasion in the summer sunshine or going out for a romantic meal in the winter. The problem many women have is working out how to style a white dress. Luckily for you, we have some helpful tips, so continue reading to find out more.

Match the setting or occasion

When considering how to style a white dress, you must first consider the setting or occasion you’ll be wearing it. If you’re enjoying a sunny, breezy day at the beach you should consider cotton and linen dresses instead of wool and crepe materials. 

A flowy maxi dress would be perfect for such an occasion or location, but it’s probably not appropriate for the office or a more formal social setting. For a more professional setting like this, you should consider a dress like our OLIVIA. At NADINE MERABI, we have a stunning collection of white dresses and OLIVIA is one of our absolute favourites.

Have you thought about our ANA white dress too?  This beautiful mini dress is the perfect party piece with 3D floral sequin embellishments that dial up the drama. It also features a dark nude crepe slip that provides coverage, allowing you to wear this to many social occasions. This ANA dress is perfect for wearing with lace-up heels while the long sleeves make it a great option for colder days and nights out. If you’re having a day out in the spring, it’s ideal for when the temperature drops in the evening.

Blazers and jackets

When considering which white dress to wear to your next social occasion, have you thought about potentially pairing it with a gorgeous jacket or blazer? At NADINE MERABI, there is a tonne of stunning jackets available to pick from in a wide range of designs and materials.

The great thing about white dresses is that you have a lot of choices when it comes to picking a colour for your accompanying jacket. For example, you could drape the MARGOT white blazer over your shoulders to pair with your white dress. This highly sophisticated blazer with feather cuff details is crafted from NADINE MERABI’s exclusive crepe and satin mix, making it a great choice for your outfit.

Or, you could sprinkle some colour into your outfit with the KIRA hot pink blazer. This show-stopping jacket is made from our exclusively-designed crepe fabric and features shimmering crystal embellishment.

Additional accessories

Apart from clothing pieces to go along with your white dress, you’ll need to consider accessories. This includes your footwear, bags, hats, and more.

Do you have a date night coming up with your significant other? If so, a white dress from NADINE MERABI is the perfect way to dress for the occasion. What should you wear to style that dress, though? You could consider a pair of black heels. Strappy heels are probably the best option considering it’s a date, but you could wear block heels too.

A black handbag or a clutch bag with your essentials is another good accessory. Try to pick something with a silver chain, though, as this will match your black-and-white look much better than gold. In terms of jewellery, add something that shimmers and shines brightly to match the light colour of your dress.

If you’re looking for a more laid-back look for a day out at the weekend with your gal pals, then you have some more choices. If you have a denim jacket it could be perfect for wearing over a white dress, like our NINA collection. A casual day with friends also means you don’t have to wear heels. Put something comfortable on your feet like a pair of trainers or sandals, while a bright-coloured bag with a floral pattern is another great addition to the look.
