How to Wear – White

Now that we are heading towards high summer (?!) nothing signals holiday season better than wearing white. Years ago it used to be the only place I ever wore white linen was on holiday, as I don’t have a holiday planned this year (yet) my white wouldn’t see the light of day. There are very few things I reserve just for holidays now and white is definitely a part of my wardrobe as soon as the weather improves.

If these pictures from The White Company’s summer range don’t put you in a holiday mood nothing will!










And white is so versatile. This year black and white was a major trend on the catwalk and I love the drama of a monochromatic outfit:


As this look isn’t for every one you have plenty of other options this season. White with one of the fluoro brights, with red and blue, or with other neutrals.

When it’s really warm and you have that gorgeous summer brightness I love to mix my white with metallics.
