I’m having a moment with whites hot pieces this season!
I’ve even filmed a video (which I’m still in the process of editing) of all my favourite white hot pieces. I managed to find even more while perusing on Lyst.
I was looking primarily for options to wear to my dad’s wedding this July, and ended up going off on a white tangent – as you do! White and cream looks so good on tanned skin, so this is the perfect time to wear them. See my picks after the jump!
An LWD (little white dress) is a must in my opinion, as much as I LUUUHHHVVVV black, an LWD is a cute switch up and just as easy to style up or down. I love peekaboo details, lace and tone on tone embroidery – texture adds some excitement to an otherwise plain dress. Off the shoulder and one shoulder details are a current fave, it’s so classy, classic, yet sexy. This style allows you to keep it so simple and minimal while still looking super stylish.

An off-white blazer is a great addition to most outfits, as Kate Moss has demonstrated so well! The three above would fit into my wardrobe so well, classic, with a little something different to them. This Bering Quilted Cotton Jacket by Isabel Marant is an Oriental take on the classic blazer; while the ‘tenacity’ Detachable Cone Sleeve Asymmetric Blazer by Ellery is such a timeless statement piece, and the detail on the sleeves is detachable to leave a classic silhouette. Finally this Cropped Blazer by Lanvin is just EVERYTHING – dressed up or dressed down!
Last but of course not least (coming from a shoeaholic) the footwear; the White Leather Open Toe Pom Pom Crochet Slide by Proenza Schouler are a classic leather mule/slider dressed up with some silver balls. You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of sneakers á la the Achilles Retro Leather Low-Top Sneakers by Common Projects. These White Nappa And Jute Espadrille by Proenza Shouler are a minimal yet animalistic take on the perfect summer shoe. The Ghillie flat is an incredibly popular shoe, and has been done by almost every High St fashion store the catalyst was this Christy Lace-up Pointed-toe Flat by Aquazzura the classic simple flat that can be worn both day and/or night. Finally, in my opinion every wardrobe needs a minimal sandal like the Nudist by Stuart Weitzman they go with everything!
