How-To Wear White This Spring/Summer 2014
One of the biggest Australian Spring Summer 2014/15 trends to transition from the runway to stores, is the classic white trend, seen worn head-to-toe in the crisp white shade, combined with neutrals or contrasted with statement prints and vibrant colour pops.
The Spring Summer 2014/15 season is all about embracing neutrals with either a feminine or sporty touch, with white seen in PU perforated panelling in sports-luxe inspired t-shirts and dresses, or in sheer chiffon blouses with intricate beading.
Whether you are heading out for drinks with the girls, running errands on a busy weekend or heading to the office, try our top tips for wearing white this season to make sure you’re looking stylish and on-trend.
Keep It Simple:
Pair a basic white top with a pair of your favourite denims for instant style cred. Accessorise with a chunky scarf for those cooler days and a long line necklace. White is all about being carefree!
Add a pop of colour:
Think a bold neon clutch, statement colour pop lip or eccentric embroidery detailing on a simple top. Perfect to add a little fun into your day look that will seamlessly transition you from desk to bar.
Tribal, botanical, photographic, whatever the style, embrace prints as the perfect contrast to classic white styles. We love teaming printed pants or a skirt with a girlie top.
Make It Sporty:
Spliced PU detailing on a basic t-shirt dress, sporty typography on tops or skater skirts, adding a sporty touch creates a more masculine touch to the typically feminine trend. We love teaming sporty styles with leather look track pants, sneakers and comfortable sweaters.
Graphic tee’s never looked so good against a white base. Think quirky pictures with stand out typography for a great weekend staple.
Play with textures and fabrics:
Lovely lace, leather, PU and just about anything else looks gorgeous in feminine shades of white. Don’t be afraid to mix n’ match different fabrications a unique touch, just keep your accessories simple.
Layer your shades:
Don’t want to go all out with white? Try layering different shades like beige, camel and ivory to break up the look. Try layering a camel jacket or cardigan over a lace white dress with nude heels for the ultimate dinner date outfit.
