Spring Double Feature: Doing White Right

Today, Irene of Petite Plus, Meow! and I are so excited to start a week-long collaborative series featuring our takes on some of spring 2016’s biggest trends.
Dress:  Eloquii (Available here)

There are so many “rules” about what petite plus women should wear, but I say wear what you want!  And, Irene and I certainly do just that!!!  Today, we’re taking on one of the major colors for spring – white!

Heels:  Candie’s

I love wearing white – it’s just such a blank slate.  It works just as well as black as a neutral, but even I have to admit that it feels much crisper and cleaner for spring than my perennial favorite black.

Glasses:  Valentino

For my look, I went with a white shirt dress and paired it with white pumps.  A black bow and my phone clutch add just enough contrast.

Clutch:  Torrid

The benefits of being petite?  This shirt dress would be a tunic on anyone taller.  On me, it was the perfect length shirt dress with no alterations on length.  Note – I did have both the shoulders and sleeves taken up.

I can’t wait to style this dress in other ways – with a moto jacket, with pants or jeans, and maybe as a swimsuit cover-up.  I think it’s going to become a favorite of mine this spring and summer!

Faux fur keychain:  Torrid

While I went with classic black and white, Irene added red accents to a fun and flirty off-the-shoulder dress. You can catch more of her look at Petite Plus, Meow! or head to her Facebook page.
