All White Now

16 May

So if you want to look on trend for Spring/Summer 2012 choose white – it is hot! White is the colour of innocence, softness and purity. Our own Kate Middleton stepped out in a stunning full length white Roland Mouret gown looking fabulous recently.

You can go two ways with your white dress – choose something simple, elegant with tailoring, like Kate. For this look, go for clean lines and avoid embellishments.  This Hybrid wiggle tie hip dress is perfect.

Or go girlie with jumbo broderie anglaise or lace, something more romantic. Opt for voluminous layers and sweetheart necklines. Try this Eucalyptus Ava dress. I just love the way it flows. Very Vivienne Westwood don’t you think? Mix your whites with neutrals for a more natural look. Or, for a modern twist , team it with a pop of colour. Choose one of this season’s brightest hues. Yellow or looks fantastic, as does blue. Try these cute Primark yellow wedges – only £12. Add some colourful chunky bangles to finish your look. I love these Celliana ones – £18 each.

White is such versatile colour to mix and match. But beware, pure white is difficult to carry off depending on your skin tone. Try a soft white or cream if it washes you out too much. Go for something a bit funky like this cream Apricot bell sleeve lace number. Now reduced to £10!!!
