All White

All White

With Wimbledon upon us, are you ready to take on one of this Summer’s biggest colour trends -white?

This look is not as straight forward as you my think – there are many shades of white as well as different styles of wearing it. Romantic style personalities will love the broderie anglaise and filigree fabrics seen at Valentino. City Chics will love the clean preciseness seen at Prada.

If you have a boyish shape, a cool way to embrace the look is with a tailored trouser suit ala Bianca Jagger.

If you are not body confident, white might not be your most flattering colour. If you think about painting a room, using a dark colour will make the room appear smaller, whereas using a light colour will make the room appear larger. So if you don’t want to draw attention to lumps and bumps, maybe use white as an accent colour in an accessory, such as a clutch or shoes (white shoes don’t have to be Essex Girl!)

A fantastic way to add volume is to choose white ruffles – very on trend for this season – steer clear though if you are very curvy. We can all dream about this Alexander McQueen dress – perfect for an Inverted Triangle body shape.

Wearing pure white does not suit everyone’s complexion and you might be wiser to choose a softer white which will be more flattering.

If you choose to wear pure white, just add an accessory in your colour to make it work for you.

Do you have light blonde hair like Gwyneth Paltrow? Team your whites with pastel shades
