 The Beauty of White

Metallic Mini Space-Age Dress from Orlando Vintage Hello Fashion Diggers!

With the arrival of summer, we free our minds to drift to barbeques, beaches and breezy evening walks. What better way to celebrate the season then with the color that is summer…white. Whether you are looking for a dress, blouse, skirt or swimwear cover-up, shopping at FashionDig will uncover a vintage prize that you will adore for years to come.

Nothing beats the heat and says fashion versatility more than a white skirt. Ellen Christine Eclectic has a lovely Turn-of-the Century white skirt that was worn at the time for a tennis game or polo match. With today’s freedom in fashion, this skirt with its front-button openings and pockets in the front could be worn for day or evening. For a more romantic look, this shop also offers a linen weave white skirt that has 16” flounce and would look smashing with a camisole or tee.

Show off your tan, with a white blouse. Curbside Couture has a 60s Hawaiian shirt by IOILANI in pure white and adorned with a navy blue warrior and spear design. Making A Comeback is presently displaying one of the original “Gunnies”, white blouses that made Gunne Sax so famous in the 70s. This crisp white blouse has a white detailed bibbed back collar with ribbon accents, and a satin ribbon trim and scalloped lace on the cuffs.

Look stunning in a pure white dress with matching fringe sash. With a v-cut neckline and set-in waist, this makes a sexy curve hugger – find it at AnniePanties. Be inspired by the 50s with a wiggle dress made famous by Marilyn Monroe. Sunny M has an ivory cotton lace over peach taffeta with jaunty notches in the scoop neckline. Go MOD with an adorable summer white pique shift that is embellished with a perky red and white gingham daisy from Mid Century Chic.

After a dip in the pool, dry off in a cover-up. Try a sophisticated white pique flock with mandarin collar and elaborate front yoke design from Metro Retro. A charming terry white playsuit with checkered gingham trimming the neckline and armhole will really show off one’s figure.

According to the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, white is the radiance of eternity. What better way to celebrate summer than with the color that symbolizes time without beginning or end.
