As a tradition in Brazil, Reveillon or New Year's Eve is celebrated with people wearing white clothes. This is in honor of the afro goddess Yemanja (goddess of the sea). This is also the reason why a lot of Brazilians celebrate New Year at the beach. One of the biggest Reveillon party is in Copacobana beach Rio de Jainero.
New Year's Eve falls on a summer in Brazil. White is just the perfect get-up color for a cooler feel. Wearing white can be a bit tricky. You don't want to appear like someone from the medical field nor too holy. Material and details of the dress are the key to getting the flawless white ensemble. Plus don't underestimate the power of accessorizing. Any hue can complement white clothes but the best for me are gold and turquoise.
Below are some inspiration to make it a hit....
