    On the Street
    Dress Whites

    It isn’t even summer, and the white shirt and shirtdress are in abundance on the streets of Manhattan. There was even a canopy of hundreds of white shirts on Little West 12th Street in the meatpacking district. At evening parties, long white shirtdresses were reminiscent of Renoir portraits. The parks were punctuated with white dandelion heads, and the streets were flooded with sailors in town for Fleet Week.

    [​IMG][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, San Serif][SIZE=-1]Summer promises to be fashionably full of holes, with eyelet showing up as the latest retail confection. In accessories, separates and dresses, the lightweight feminine fabric — characterized by its whipstitched cut-out designs — can be found in an array of patterns and colors. Take a peek.
    An OpArt oval print smock dress by Maggy London gives traditional eyelet a graphic spin ($158 at Macy’s stores); a simple shift by Vince makes summer dressing simple ($290 in white or black at saksfifthavenue.com).

    Being in Singapore, I wear white all year round too! I have... 2 short white dresses, and a long skirt, which can double up as a tube longish dress. :heart:
  12. As I just proudly posted in the jewelry box, thanks to the wonderful people here, I was able to overcome a groundless lifelong prejudice and join the millions of happy white watchband wearers, thus my contribution to the White Clothing Suggestions - if you haven't done it already, get you a white watch band! :smile:
