An abundance of white graced the runway shows for Spring/ Summer 2013 and this trend can be seen trickling into the shops at the moment. The 'all white' trend has got to be one of my favourites at the moment and slowly but surely I can see myself biting the bullet. For me, a true fake tan fanatic, white clothing can be an absolute disaster. I recently purchased a white coat by Zara and the entire neckline is now tainted with orange. One thing's for sure, if I do embrace this trend the dry cleaners will become my new best friends!
There are so many different ways to wear the all white look and I have picked out a few of my favourite white pieces currently available on the highstreet. White crisp tailoring is a great way to create a chic and sophisticated look with great elegance. I love this tailored blazer by Topshop, the simplicity and minimalistic style would be great paired with a sheer panel white blouse and matching white tailored trousers. I picked out these tailored trousers by River Island, purely because they feature rose gold hardware which looks gorgeous against the white fabric.
White is an obvious colour choice for holiday wear, there is no better colour to compliment a lovely dark tan. I have never owned a white bikini as I'm always scared of it going see-through in the water! However, this bikini by H&M would be my first choice. I love the gold zip feature at the centre of the bandeau top and the sides of the bottoms. The elasticated gathering also gives some added texture rather than just a plain white bikini which can often be quite hard to pull off.
I actually bought this high neck white top by Topshop a while ago and wear it all the time with casual jeans or leggings. However, for the holiday season you could take the all white trend head on by pairing it with cute scalloped edge shorts and white slingback heels. I do think the white does need breaking up sometimes so a great way to do this is by adding a white piece of jewellery with crystal embellishments or a bright clutch bag. I would also add a splash of colour by using a bright colour on the lip such as a pillar box red, hot pink or neon coral.
