Spring/summer trend: white and bright

The second of my spring/summer trend, white clothes are an easy thing to wear. They show off a tan, act as a canvas for accessories and layering, while being suitable for both formal and informal events. This week I show you my pick of white brights, which also translate some of the other key trends:

1) Nails Inc Floral Street White Nail Polish 10ml £9
White nail varnish – it used to be something people only associated with chavs, but it’s all how you wear it and what you wear it with.
How to style it: You can alternate this with pastel colours, or just go the whole hog and wear it on its own. I like the idea of adding dalmatian spots to it with a nail art pen.
2) Alessia White Tux Jacket £294.00
A white blazer ticks all the right style boxes. This one is particularly beautiful because it takes on tux tailoring and I really love the length.
How to style it: Wear it to a summer evening party over a pretty dress, or for work wear over a gorgeous black dress. It will also look amazing against a smokey grey anything.

3) Free People Vintage Lace Dress £145
This vintage white gauze and lace dress is the epitome of the white dress for me. I like the Victoriana feel for it and think it’s perfect for late summer/autumn too.
How to style it: On hot days, pair with pretty sandals, but on colder days, you can wear it with tights and I will be wearing it with vintage cowboy boots.

Brogues have been around for a while now, but this pair give a nod to the spring/summer lace trend, making them perfect to start wearing from now.

How to style it: How about with some little shorts, to give a bit of feminine meets masculine for a very cute look? Would also look very sweet with knee socks if the day’s a bit colder.

Envelope clutches are big for the warmer seasons and you’re going to see everybody wearing them. This is a cheap and cheerful leather-look version.
How to style it: This would look cute with most things, but try wearing it on a night out with a maxi dress on a balmy evening and you’ll be on the money.

Will you be wearing the white trend? What do you think of my choices?
