The rules around all-white ensembles continue to get more lenient except for one place: the office. Should you? Shouldn鈥檛 you? And if you dare to take on this trend, what should you keep in mind? While the jury is still out, Levo spoke with four successful women who offered their advice on the matter.


1. Tailor it.

鈥淚 love when I see women wearing full suits, structured dresses 鈥 the fit is what keeps it professional 鈥 blazers that are tailored so perfectly it鈥檚 hard not to mean business. Or slim white pants that mimic the fit of your typical work pants. Again, work with your tailor on this.鈥 鈥 Jonnee Tonsel, Associate Project Manager, Client Services at Turner Broadcasting System

2. Keep it classic.

鈥淲henever I wear a light-colored or white shirt, I always manage to get something on it, be that spaghetti sauce, soy sauce, hot sauce, you name it. However, that doesn鈥檛 stop me from wearing all white. I love its classic look in the summer 鈥 specifically, pairing your tailored white blazer with a white pencil skirt or culottes. Just keep a Tide pen handy!鈥 鈥 Sammi Liang, Account Executive at Ogilvy Public Relations

3. Accessories are key.

鈥淎ccessorizing is major when wearing white. They鈥檙e the difference between looking like you鈥檙e on the way to the beach or the boardroom. Choose the right statement piece wisely; bold, gold cuffs around your wrists or a cocktail ring fit the bill.鈥 鈥 Kamille Cooper, Digital Brand Strategist

4. Apply common sense.

鈥淎t the office, wearing white, in my opinion, is only inappropriate if it crosses boundaries, like white super short shorts, a sheer white blouse with a visible bra鈥 you know, use common sense. If you wouldn鈥檛 wear it usually, don鈥檛 think white will make it more work appropriate.鈥 鈥 Kamille Cooper, Digital Brand Strategist
