Up until now, Summer 2012 has been all about the florals, neons, and embellished midriff blouses. That’s why the crisp white dresses we’re seeing on celebs and runways are such a breath of fresh air. Here’s a glimpse of the white dress trend at its best, as worn by Luxemi co-founder and style maven Swathi Narra.
It’s impossible to miss the flurry of white in Summer 2012 collections, with Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney and Diane Von Furstenberg all taking a reprieve from neons and florals to send white-hot gowns down the runway. Celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and Nicole Kidman have all rocked white dresses this summer to keep their look light and fresh, both on and off the Red Carpet.
Want to emulate the white trend? Just follow Swathi’s lead. When our resident fashionista needed a summery wedding outfit, she knew exactly what to wear: Luxemi’s stunning White and Silver Gota Angrakha Salwar. The salwar has a delicate pearl border and ribbon motifs that give it a definite 1920s vibe, and Swathi played up the look’s flapper qualities by pairing it with layered pearl strand necklaces and floral motif earrings. To get the look, try wearing this salwar with Luxemi’s Lotus with Pearl Ball Earrings, and a set or two of these Layered Pearl Necklaces by Kenneth Jay Lane.
To polish off your “less is more” look, choose a soft, neutral-tone lipstick. Luxemi’s favorite is the Nars Orgasm Multiple, which has a peachy hue and a hint of gold shimmer. (Want to take the look a step further? Check out the rest of the gorgeous Nars Orgasm cosmetic line!)
