White Christmas

23 Nov

Unleash your inner angel this season with the LWD (that’s little white dress, fyi).

The virginal shade had been lingering around for quite some time  after  a flurry of white reigned supreme on the a/w catwalks.

The little white dress comes as a refreshing antidote to winter’s consistently dark, gothy image. Surprisingly wearable, this white pu dress from Miss Selfridge tackles two trends in one, remaining edgy enough to steer from being too froufrou pretty.

White feathers and faux fur provide glamour when thrown over a lwd and bare a resemblance to the flapper girl style of the 1920s, when pure white was worn in abundance and paired with lashings of bling and opulent fur.

Keep silhouettes minimalistic and add drama  with metallics and a statement headpiece for a decidedly glamorous look. Another option is to throw a mannish white blazer over sequins for a contrast of hues and texture.

A white tailored dress can be updated with feathers, silver jewellery and glitzy shoes.

It can also be reworked by pairing silver brogue shoes and a biker jacket thrown over a LWD for an effortless take on the trend.

This trend is all about balance. Think less monochrome, more Marilyn.
