Spring 2013 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to an All White Party

Happy Thursday ladies! The weather has warmed up a bit which means spring is well underway and summer will soon be approaching. And a sure sign of summer’s arrival is the ubiquitous presence of the all-white party.

With that being said, a couple of our Fashion Bomb readers have inquired about what to wear to such an event,  so today I’m tackling “What to Wear” requests for two ladies who are in need of all-white attire inspiration.

First up, reader Aryn writes, “Hi, I wanted to know what to wear for an all white party at a club. I am a college student so I am on a budget, so something not extremely pricey would be good. Thanks in advance.”

You can always go the predictable route and style a simple white club dress for an all-white soiree, but I wanted to be a bit more creative by putting together a few separates to achieve a stylish look. So for your first wardrobe option, I went for a dressier take on a shorts and tank top combo with a pair of silver and gold triangle sequin shorts paired with a white Oasis Elizabeth top and a pair of white Steve Madden Realove ankle strap sandals.

Mix in flashy statement pieces including a Baublebar gold gear strands necklace, a pair of Belle Noel by Kim Kardashian Glamrock studs, and a Kenneth Jay Lane polished gold and crystal cocktail ring. And lastly, throw your favorite nude lipstick in a stylish clutch like this Ted Baker Titiana patent leather crystal bobble option and you’ll be ready to shut down the club.

Creams and off-whites are great alternatives to an all-white look. So for your second option, I styled this off-white H&M blazer with a form-fitting white corset top, and studded acid-washed denim cut-offs. To uplift the ensemble, opt for high heeled sandals like this trendy pair from Asos.

To make your look pop, work with statement pieces that pull everything together including a geometric chain clutch, a Forever 21 Large Gradated chain-link necklace, and a pair of sparkly oversized crystal stud earrings. Last but not least, touch up your face with a bold pink lip and eyeshadow combination.

And if your heart is set on looking fierce in a freakum dress, I styled this celebboutique.com “Carrie” cream strapless peplum dress with a pair of Chinese Laundry Lucky Charm gold and orange ankle strap sandals and a Karen Millen metallic bow box clutch.

Adia Kibur dangle earrings and an Indian Wow bangle set add some sparkle to the look. Finish things off with a bright orange lip and a smoky nude lid.

Now from the club to the yacht, our second all-white soiree attendee, Shanna writes, “I’m going to an all white affair boat party July 27th, a moonlight cruise around Lake Michigan. It’s from 11pm – 2am. Can you recommend a few outfits that will be suitable for the occasion?”

For your first look, I went with a white River Island front zipper peplum top paired with a Tilly sequin mini skirt. To play up the touch of silver in the skirt I opted for a pair of Amanda Wakeley Camilla Skovgaard silver strappy sandals, a Diane von Furstenberg Lytton Metallic Canvas Minaudiere box clutch, a clear studded Valentino bracelet, and a pair of Baublebar gunmetal ice drop earrings.

For look #2, I used this gathered embellished maxi dress with a sexy slit as my style muse and added a little glamour with a pair of B Brian Atwood Labrea Gold Multi Snake evening sandals.

I opted for a VC Signature Sam clutch, a pair of Alexis Bittar Crysophase earrings, and a Michael Kors gold fringe cuff to add a punch of color. Keep your Grecian goddess look stylishly chic with a nude lid and matching lip for the final touch.

For your third and final wardrobe option, I created a sleek and sophisticated pants ensemble including these Burberry London Eton Aagby tailored trousers topped with an H&M blouse. To give this look a vibrant touch, I included a few colorful pieces such as a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Design platform sandals, a Charlotte Olympia Pandora Colour box clutch, a pair of Zara sparkly stone dangling earrings, and a Mawi silver-toned blue gemstone daisy cocktail ring.
