Glam Slam: How To Wear White
Hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend! If you go by the old style rule, you can officially wear white now!
But white can be a little trickier to pull off, because it's less forgiving than darker colors. InStyle Senior Style Editor Sydne Bolden Long shares her tips for how to do white right.

"For white jeans, which I think are a must-have for Summer, I suggest cutting out the front pockets for a clean look. Many designer jeans have faux front pockets. But I think if you find a flattering jean, just take it to your tailor and have them cut the front pockets and sew them closed."
"I think the most universally flattering pants on most body shapes are the classic sailor pant in white. It's a fun look; the wide leg can balance hips and if you have a boyish figure go for a trimmer leg and a heel to add length. Nautical is always a Summer trend," according to Sydne.
"This season, white is a great base for the bright pink, yellow and orange neon accents in clothing. It makes those colors really pop!"
"I absolutely love a white t-shirt with everything this season - under a vest, under a boyfriend blazer with skinny jeans, underneath a wispy camisole dress… so fresh! My all time favorite is either Petit Bateau or 3 Dots," says Sydne. "They are thicker and you don't have to worry about the sheer factor."
Sydne stresses that "nude underpinnings are a must when wearing white. Nude full cut panties are my favorites with pants and skirts because they add extra coverage and comfort. You can even go for a slimming one underneath garments for added smoothing."
