Paler colours have had a resurgence for spring with lots of the big houses showing full-on, head-to-toe white looks to great effect. From ‘70s-inspired catsuits at Alice + Olivia to a chucked together, festival-style look with striking accessories at Desigual, the big names showed that keeping it simple doesn’t have to be boring. Carolina Herrera, Carven and Michael Kors accentuated dazzling whites with flashes of black, taupe and navy respectively, while Fenty Puma and Marc Jacobs went for slightly bonkers but nonetheless effective layered looks.
Wear It Your Way
This is a trend that could be tailor-made for our part of the world. Glorious, almost year-round sunshine means we never need an excuse to don an all-white outfit and if it’s coupled with a light tan, all the better (but don’t forget the sun screen). Team loose white linen pants with a statement self-patterned top for a look that never dates. Or channel a more fashion-forward style with edgy ripped jeans and a slogan tee. Not sure you want to go all the way? You can rarely go wrong with white jeans worn with a coloured top or add extra interest to an all-white ensemble with colour-pop shoes or accessories.

to be white, dirty grey just won’t do!
