White is always the ‘it’ colour for summer. Whether you’re off to the beach, having lunch with the girls, or painting the city streets this summer, there’s something about an all-white ensemble that keeps things clean and simple, yet chic, and is an easy way to look fresh all season long.
Strange as it seems when we’re talking about totally one colour, you can really let yourself go here. Edge a silk dress with filigree, or go for all-over lace. If that’s too revealing – and let’s face it, we’re not talking red carpets – wear it over a cream, coffee or pink lining, or pull on a vest. Hop into some filigree shorts and imitation reptile mules, and dress up the whole with classy jewellery.
Sometimes that little pop of colour emphasises the lack of it elsewhere. Pair white jeans and blouse, and top with a bright pink fedora, or cinch with a narrow tan belt. Accessorise with animal print heels, and paint lips and nails boldly.
