Whites and Uniforms





I have worn all white outfits before. My memory draws a proactive succession off all-white attires, which only and only were associated with school and college uniforms. Blame it on age (and yes just age), white uniform in school used to cheer me up. We were supposed to wear it every Wednesday and during school days a little sartorial variation was enough. Atleast, enough to tell me that fashion holds my real self and happiness. Plus it used to make me feel that white makes my skin glow with a wonderful peach-y tint.





Enter college. My sartorial senses added and style options multiplied. I began to recognize the basic premises of outfits - what makes you glow is the color that suits you, variations in the outfit textures can do wonders for your body shape, heels can be my best friend, accessories and clothes need to work in tandem and studying in an all girls college has been my greatest bet till date. During college, white began to be associated with college uniform (to be worn on Monday's), the day of reminded regulations, the day you wouldn't want to go "hang out" after college hours and the day when an exam fell on a Monday. Basically, talk of white and I'll say I have been there, done that!!
Being a style blogger (and an up-keeper of trends), I know I should have accessorized with Tan and followed the grail that Gold and Silver accents pop even more against the white canvas. I remember wearing white corduroy pants with a white knitted top and white (and black) flats to college...I am sure my uniform now can include that dash of color...maybe much within the regulations!!
