With soaring temperatures, bright blue skies and summer here in full force, we’re in the mood for wearing as little as possible… Tumbling layers of creamy cotton, crisp shift dresses and the recent inspiration of green lawns and tennis whites from Wimbledon mean that we’re loving the freshness and purity of white lace. It’s a trend that works for everyone, whether you go all out with a maxi dress, or layer under tailoring for stylish work wear that hints at a little bit of naughtiness. No white undies though please ladies – it’s either ladylike nude or neon with attitude, and nothing in between.
A clean, gleamy face (makeup will never stay on in this heat anyway), with minimal eye makeup and a strong lip (red, orange, pink) looks cool and modern. Or do it with accessories, like this super-cool lacey Azzedine Alaia tote bag from Lane Crawford, HK3,030.
Or check out these Sandro pieces available from Rue Madame in ifc and Lee Gardens in CWB – white lace and black is always classic and hot. The top above is the Elionor for HK2320, and below with the black peter pan collar (that will also work for A/W) is the Envouant (HK2295). Not cheap, but you’ll wear them again and again and Sandro is GREAT quality, plus you can channel French girl chic with a topknot and general air of insouciance.
