Fashion Forecast: The whiter than white trend is here

White is always a trend come Summer time but this year I reckon we can expect a total white-out. A scary prospect for some, me included, but be brave and try white from head to toe; maybe as a loose-fitting jumpsuit or cocktail dress Victoria Beckham style. 

Standout styles and textures include broderie anglaise dresses, maxi skirts and fantastic crisp tailoring. Also remember white plus tan equals fashion perfection and I don't mean skin, although sun-kissed skin works too, think beige belts and heels. For the very fashion forward try white washing your nails for instant SS11 dazzle. Colour may be the new black this season but I think it's fair to say you should prepare your wardrobe for a total fashion white-over.
The starting point for any outfit, the jacket, well in this case the blazer,, this will go with almost everything

Fashion Fix: how to wear the bright coloured maxi skirt

I never thought I'd say this, well write it, but if there is one thing you'll need this year it's a brightly coloured maxi skirt. It will massively brighten up your wardrobe as well as your mood. Think of fresh pinks or purples and wear with a simple white shirt and fantastic heels that are almost hidden except for a quick flash of bright colour as you swish down the street, festival.. insert at will. Think I'm kidding about the bright colours? You'll just have to wait and see...

White now..white here. There is simply nothing nicer than a chic white shirt, well in my humble opinion this Miss Selfridge should be a key piece for Spring and into Summer
