Move over bold brights, and make way for all whites. If SS12 catwalks are anything to go by then white is the only shade of grey you will see this season (ignoring our typical British summer of course). Designers this year flooded the catwalks with beams of ambience and angelic whites in all styles from maxis and midis to cocktails.
Despite the gloomy weather, cast away your androgynous darks and freshen up your look with a white on white ensemble. After all nothing says elegance and sophistication quite like this hue.
From Celine and Diane Von Furstenberg casting clean cut tailoring and sleek minimalism to Chloe and Louis Vuitton favoring girlish lace and silks, designers presented an abundance of pureness this season on the runway, proving just how hot this cool shade can be.
And the secret of making the most out of your outfit? Keep it simple and understated. The only accessory you need is a warm golden glow. Luckily this trend is super easy for anyone to pull off, for either a casual summer’s day with a pair of sandals, or as evening outfit with dare I say it? White heels. So don’t be afraid to go all out and dazzle in the suns reflection this summer.
