When choosing a white dress, you simply have to see which white looks best on you. As a rule of thumb, the darker your skin tone, the brighter the white you can wear.
Stark White: The purest and brightest of the whites there is. Best for the darker skin tones, can wash out the fair skinned ladies. Stark white dresses are usually made from synthetic fabrics such as polyester blends and satin.
Natural White: Also referred to as the Off-White is the natural fibers white, just a shade off from stark white. Usually you would not be able to tell the difference unless it was right beside a stark white wedding gown. Best for medium skin tones and skin tones with yellow undertones, but incredibly flattering to all others as well.
Ivory: Also known as “Eggshell”, has cream or yellow undertones which are flattering for fair skinned ladies or those with pink undertones. The warmer shade of white will add a glow to your skin.
