The seaside dress is to be worn on occasions that may happen in an outdoor environment, however have a firm floor that allows heels. This long dress might go well with Floripa’s Reveillon Boutique. If you are planning a dinner party or a more formal turn of the year, Larissa selected a dress that would be perfect for the occasion.
You may be asking, why this obsession with white? Well we Brazilian’s are quite superstitious and we believe the only way to turn into the new year is to wear white, the color for peace! However, Larissa says, “You can escape a little bit from the plain white, try an off-white or very light cream color”. Another tradition is wearing different color undergarments to represent different desires. Pink = Love, Red = Passion, Yellow = Money, Blue = harmony and so on…
During the big night, since everyone will be wearing white, Larissa suggests, “the trick is to focuse color on the accessories, choose a brightly colored pair of shoes or purse”. Gold and silver bracelets are classics to compliment the outfit. “The different destinations in Brazil also have their own styles”, she says. “The northeast with places like Fernando de Noronha calls for a more romantic look, as for Trancoso is more hippie chic”.
