Q: How do I wear white without looking too plain?

A: White is a perennial classic. For spring it feels fresh in interesting textures, like an open-work knit sweater, lightweight crochet jacket or fringed skirt. And it makes a great canvas for embellishments, too — sequins, embroideries and appliqués, which add a touch of glamour for day or evening. Or try sun-bleached accessories, whether simple smoking slippers or a perforated handbag. I love how they can both pull together a pale monochromatic look and pop against bright colors.
