If you have a love-hate relationship with white dresses, you can rest assured that you're not alone. While it doesn't get much prettier than a breezy white dress in the summer, wearing the wrong undergarments underneath can quickly turn a simple white dress into a style faux pas. Which is exactly why we decided to turn to a sartorial expert to take the guesswork out of what to wear under a white dress. Accordingly, we consulted top celebrity stylist Tara Swennen, who counts Kristen Stewart, Lauren Conrad, Caitriona Balfe, and Lucy Hale among her bevy of It-girl clients. (It doesn't get more expert than that.)
Without hesitation, Swennen filled us in on the brand that she swears by for wearing with white (and sheer summer dresses): Commando. And since our bralette obsession is real, we were particularly intrigued by the one she recommends for summer whites: the $64 Cotton Scoop Bralette. As Swennen told us, Commando's "seamless pieces are great to use under sheer looks for a clean and flattering look. And the comfort is next level." She added, "They're especially great for springtime white." Last but not least, she shared a piece of advice that's music to our ears: "For undergarments for me, the rule of thumb is you shouldn't have to sacrifice comfort and function for style." Amen.
