Gretta's Got It: White
Wearing white can help you beat the summer heat here in South Florida, but wearing white right is easier said than done. Gretta shows us what's hot and what's not for this season's sizzling color in this week's Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "Every glamour girl knows that they need some great white in their wardrobe, and this season it's red hot."
Gretta Monahan: "From jeans to shorts to dresses I'm going to show you how to do white right.
Gretta Monahan: "The easiest way to sport summer white is the dress. The color usually says sweet and innocent, but don't be fooled, it can also say sexy and sizzling. If you are looking for a look that gives your wardrobe mileage, this dress starts you out at beach chic.
Gretta Monahan: "Don't be afraid to add a belt, a jacket and hot shoes and change this white dress from day to night."
Gretta Monahan: "In look number three, it goes from a dress to a skirt. How cool is that?"
Gretta Monahan: "Some whites suffer the see-through curse. My trick is place your hand underneath. If you can see that, then you can surely see everything else too. Remember there are different types of white for different types of skin color, so, a rule of thumb, if white washes you out, lose it."
Gretta Monahan: "One of the hottest celebrity must-have looks is white pants. From denim to cotton to linen, this is the must-have look for the summer."
Gretta Monahan: "When you have full, loose pants on the bottom, you want to pair it with a fitted top."
Gretta Monahan: "I love white pants, but I hate seeing the pocket. All you have to do is cut them and stitch them up, and that goes for those pockets in shorts too. Speaking of which...
Gretta Monahan : "So you think you can't wear white shorts? Think again. This season they come in a variety of different looks and lengths."
Gretta Monahan: "White top to toe can be a bit too much. This season add metallic or bright and bold, and you're good to go."
Gretta Monahan: "And, the most important tip about white, you have to wear nude, seamless under garments at all time."
Gretta Monahan: "So you don't need to be a bride to wear it. White is right for any occasion this summer. I'm Gretta, for Gretta's Got It."
