How to Look Good in White Clothes - Adam Glassman's Advice
Forget everything you thought you knew about this color—and discover a shade for all seasons.

Forza finds light colors impractical for traveling, which is a requirement in her work. (Recent home-building trips have taken her to Jordan, Nepal, Cambodia, and Guatemala.)
A classic white button-front shirtdress (Sara Roka, $430), if not ideal for a construction site, suits almost any other occasion, says Glassman (who calls a garment like this "my favorite thing in the world for all body types"). It looks as good crisply pressed as it does rumpled and belted, which means it's easy to pack. And it can be styled up or down with accessories—in this case, woven-leather heels (Prada) and plenty of bangles (Bajalia for HSN, Alexis Bittar).
