How to wear white in the summer

Wearing white during summer makes it easier to bear all of the heat that the season brings around. Just remember to avoid looking drab and very boring by adding a little bit of color to your ensemble with the aid of accessories.

White Je T’aime Lips Slogan T-Shirt at New Look
A cotton t-shirt in white with a print of lips and the wording ‘Je T’aime’ (that translates into ‘I love you’ from French) on it; it’s very nicely simple and casual.

Shorts with broderie anglaise at Esprit
The pair of white shorts has a Borderie Anglaise design at the bottom end, which adds an element of boldness to the ensemble.

Coach Dark Disney applique Market canvas tote at Selfridges
A remarkable tote bag for a woman with a young frame of mind: it features terrifying-looking insignia from one of Disney’s finest classics, Snow White.

Gucci New Ace star-detail leather sneakers at Selfridges
A pair of white sneakers featuring colorful stars in red and purple and a pretty wide red and green stripe across the middle; it’s very beautifully colorful.

Totes For Spring

The hottest of tote bags in the greatest of designs

A tote is the perfect cross between a carry all and a handbag. Big and stylish, a tote can take you straight from work into relaxed evenings with ease.

Aspinal of London Marylebone micro crocodile-embossed leather tote purse at Selfridges
Beautifully red and handmade, the tote has an edgy design and can be carried in two ways; it is just the perfect bag for the strong working woman.

Gucci Elton John large leather tote bag at Selfridges
The tote bag from Gucci features the cover for a song by Elton John called ‘Levon’, which was a tribute of sorts to Levon Helm from the Canadian-American music group called The Band; John was a big fan of the rock band’s music – it was this odd marriage of plain music with unwritten lore.

Kenzo Memento II denim tote at Selfridges
The brick red bag features an embroidery of a painting by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai called ‘Under the Wave off Kanagawa’; I liked the simplicity of the tote and the fact that that simplicity is very nicely mixed with art.

Coach Dark Disney poison apple leather tote at Selfridges
The tote bag is a part of Coach’s collab with Disney: it features a glitter print of the poison apple that Snow White bites into and there is an extraordinary amount of details on the inside of the bag (just conceive: jewels, a mini tale of the collab and eyes) – very remarkable.

Vintage Evenings

Being fashion-forward can also happen when wearing a really good fashion piece from the past

Wearing something vintage for the evening? Going with something black for the night is a wise idea. But remember to keep the accessories to a bare minimum because there is already too much history in the clothes for the look to be any more precious.

Tom Ford for Gucci black dress, F / W 2004 at 1stdibs
This little black dress is just perfect to look sultry for the evening; wear it with a pair of black high heels and drop earrings to look like a million bucks.

Thierry Mugler black crepe dress with sheer bodice, 1990s at 1stdibs
Elegant but brash, the black dress boasts appliques on its sheer bodice; wear it with a pair of high heeled peep-toes to pull off a strong and feminine look for the night.

Yves Saint Laurent red dress with black trim, 1990s at 1stdibs
Strikingly red, with standout black details, the dress is ideal for cultured evenings; wear it with a pair of black pumps.

Alexander McQueen Runway Sheer Black Plunging Asymmetrical Dress, F / W 1997 at 1stdibs
The black dress features a plunging neckline but the dress itself is rather professional-looking and exudes an idea of raw power; wear it with a pair of strappy black high heels and carry a clutch.

Love Flowers

Great dresses featuring the most traditional fashion concept during spring – florals

One of the most beautiful qualities of spring is flowers; wearing it is not a different train of thought either.

Richard Quinn Contrast-panel dip-hem floral-print satin dress
A straight off the runway piece, the satin dress is vibrant and a little bit Oriental for its high-neck; the dress also features a flamboyant type of draping – wear it to a low-key cocktail to be the center of attention.

Gucci Le Jardin rose-print silk gown
Another dress that is straight off the runway, this gown with a plunging neckline is orange and features pink-colored flowers; wear it to a garden party meant to raise money for a really great cause.

Dolce & Gabbana Floral-brocade button-detail midi dress
Influenced by the Mediterranean, the midi dress features flowers in shades of pink and yellow; I like that it features an orange- colored buttons at the front – very casual and youthful.

Diane von Furstenberg Argos floral-print silk-satin dress
Red-colored lilies feature on the strappy satin number; it is perfect for really quiet dinners.
