The off the shoulder white summer dress

White dress patmos

What else could we be talking about on a sunny Monday in October? Of course, summer and the comfiest summer dresses that you can bring with you on a holiday.

I may have pointed out in an older post, but a white summer dress especially an off the shoulder white summer dress is what keeps me going on my holidays. It is the comfiest and easiest dress to style and you can wear it from day to night.

I may have invested in two summer dresses last summer and you can get to see one of them here, but this doesn’t mean that you got to see both of them (big laugh!)

USE YOUR WHITE DRESS AS A CANVAS AND STYLE IT UP

This dress which I got from PrettyLittleThing.com I decided to style up for a walk in Patmos town. A simple white dress like this one can act as a canvas and can be easy to style and mix with colours. 

Choosing pink as my main colour to style it with, I went for a colourful scarf to wear as headband protecting me from the harsh sun and since these type of dresses can be very loose and relaxed in the waist area, I went for a thin brown belt.

A small belt can give shape to any silhouette without taking away from the simple and minimalistic character of the dress.

THINK OF METALLIC COLOURS AS NEUTRAL

I have a thing for metallic, I love silver, gold and rose gold and in general any type of mettalics. I find it easy to pair with most clothes, so here again, I matched a metallic pair of sandals with a big beach bag where I have in all the essential for the day like my camera, water and sunblock.

As I get older I find myself going for more neutral and basic colours, such as whites, blacks, greys, creams and I tend to move away from the more bright and eccentric ones. However, this being said there is always time and place for the perfect colourful print dress.
