How to Wear White.

Looking around white is in the shops, in the magazines, it was on the runway and now I decided it is also going to be one of the looks i’ll be wearing this Spring/ Summer. Diving into my wardrobe to dig out my white’s made me realise just how diverse life tends to be and how we need outfits suitable for all sorts of occasions.

In the past I have always been nervous about wearing white with white as there is that danger that it all ends up looking very bland – the very simple answer to avoid this is to make sure you wear something bright in your face – I tend to go for colourful lips but think that great eye make up would work too. Bright shoes also work but it can also be ok to carry on with the white theme on your feet – smile.

Here are some looks I came up with:

Where to buy:

Trousers vintage – similar suggestions below, Jacket –Tommy Hilfiger (similar suggestion below), Long Skirt – Zara (think it’s my favourite), Short skirt – Tommy Hilfiger (also like this with black stockings and black shoes), Tops vintage – similar suggestions below.
