Summer has finally come into full swing with green leaves on the trees and the evenings staying lighter. It’s time for BBQ filled weekends, luxurious trips to far away places and lazy walks in the sun! As, at long last, we pack away our cable knit jumpers and duffle coats to make way for embroidered patterns and a whole palette of fresh summer colours and in particular the simplistic beauty of the colour white.
Whether paired with a bold pattern or a plain block, the angelic shade is a must-have for your wardrobe this season. From sophisticated lace dresses to loose-fittings culottes, white is ideal for every occasion, seeing your summer wardrobe through from nine to five office attire to rooftop cocktails.
White has featured heavily in many a designer collection from Stella McCartney to Diane Von Furstenburg, giving plenty of options to such a simplistic hue with lace, collars and frills, confirming that there is nothing in your wardrobe you won’t be able to pair it with.
Below are a few of our favourite white essentials. Pair them with an accent of colour for a clean, put together look that will carry you through these hotter months.
