Did I mention that I love a heatwave!
I also happen to love a white frock. If it’s broderie Anglais then we are winning two fold. But I am well aware that white is not the easiest of colours to wear. First off, if you’re travelling by tube, the chances are it will be a lot less white when you arrive at your chosen destination. Brushing up against all sorts and potentially sitting on something that resembles an M&S sandwhich are obstacles we would all rather avoid. I’m also aware that a lot of you only wear black and to transition over to white is a scary thought. But nonetheless I am showing you ways to wear white and that’s not necessarily head to toe. Whether it’s to work, to a wedding, or to the beach, I hope I have covered all scenarios. My all time favourite white look has to be Bianca Jagger in a white trouser suit at her wedding to Mick Jagger. Super cool and undeniably super chic. The Topshop one in the pictures is rather amazing. The blazer has a masculine boxy shape and it’s fully lined. The trousers are high waisted with a long slouchy fit and pockets. I don’t often wear a suit but it makes a great alternative to wearing a dress all the time. This is a keeper.
Some of these pieces are in the sale but those retailers know what we are hankering after and have held back putting everything on a sale rail. After all, it’s only June. (Even though I saw new season coats already on display at Liberty yesterday!) That will be the crazy world of fashion, and they wonder why retail is struggling. I’m still searching for bikinis. 🙈
