We’ve all heard the old adage: wearing all black is slimming. While it’s true that dark colors recede and make things appear smaller (this applies to makeup as well), avoiding lighter hues is well, a bit staid.

I love nothing more than a crisp, clean, all-white ensemble; it always translates as chic and effortless. Editors, designers, retailers and celebrities agree!
