All things white

Some girls tend to shy away from white, but it's popping up everywhere leading into spring so it's time to embrace it - you just need to know how:

Choose a shade
that suits your skin tone. For those with cool skin tones, it's best to work with classically bright white. Warm skin tones including those girls with a great tan or even fair-skinned ladies - as long as there are yellow undertones - should embrace cream or ivory whites. Olive and ebony shades look best with ecru.

White that clings to your body may not be ideal for girls who are conscious of their lumps and bumps.

Check the white for its coverage. You can only get away with see-through white over swimmers, on a beach. Otherwise consider wearing a slip underneath.

White isn't just a summer colour. Play with contrasts by throwing a white winter coat over a colourful outfit, pair a textured white dress with a black coat and black shoes or go bohemian by pairing your furry vest with a long white maxi and ankle boots.

Don't overdo it. If you're wearing a white summer dress, accessorise with silver, gold or a splash of bright colour. Not white shoes and a white handbag. Blue denim, black and tan shades also work well with white.

I love pairing white with black leather to give that softer look mixed with a bit of grunge. xx
