All In White: My Favourite SS13 Trend



A firm favorite every season, top to toe white got its injection of SS13 cool in the form of textures:
The catwalk was filled with an abundance of textures, either clashing together for an achingly cool 'I just threw this on' look or working alone for the ultimate statement piece.



There was laser cutting, the mandatory leather, lace and even some mesh effect.
Paired with bold, or a calmer nude, accessories depending on how you're feeling, white became more wearable, more everyday friendly, although you might have to stay away from the red wine...


Here's my pick of my favourite SS13 catwalk looks, all from Vogue.



Although the solider hat is best kept on the catwalk, the simple white collared shift dress paired with an elegant, monochrome blazer is the perfect way to introduce white into your work wardrobe.

The black detail breaks up the white for a more wearable look and the silver statement shoes and striped bag are the perfect understated accessories to let your uber cool dress do the talking. 

This outfit just shows the versatility of white: Moschino have kept their signature quirky look alive with their accessories showing how easy white can be to express yourself.




This look is, quite simply, summer.
The lightweight but detailed dress, the on show legs and even the sandals.

The mesh detail on the sleeves makes the dress wearable yet still incredibly futuristic.
The 3D flower effect is again, futuristic while still remaining classic and the simple shoes leave the outfit to do the talking.

The mix of textures in this outfit  from the mesh on the dress, to the leather on the sandals and even the cotton head wear is exactly how to how to make all white interesting and playful.





Rumor has it, this is the must have jacket for spring/summer and it's easy to see why.

A perfect example of how on trend laser cutting detail is, the jacket is both simple enough for everyday wear with its bomber style, while still being intricately detailed enough to make a statement.

Paired on the catwalk with a matching skirt, the jacket would work equally well with a simple white dress, a neutral pallete or, like in this picture (and like at Moschino, can you see a trend?) monochrome.  





Valentino. The home of romantic fashion- even their name is beautiful.
This is probably my favourite look- it's so beautiful, precise, elegant yet still so simple.
A total mix of adjectives, looks and trends, this outfit is everything a catwalk look should be.

Like Loewe, Valentino have also gone for a laser cut jacket and a matching bottom half. However, Valentino have kept the look more simple with the A line jacket (a true fashion classic) and the scalloped hemmed shorts playing peekaboo underneath.

Teamed with nude accessories, this is the Spring look to my Moncler Gamme Rouge Summer:
the jacket is perfect for keeping dry in spring showers while the shorts and nude sandals keep the outfit fresh and beautiful, the epitome of Valentino. 





As you may have noticed with the other looks, white is a trend that lends its self easily to other trends. It welcomes trend clashing and is beautifully versatile.

This Pucci is another trend mix: a world away from the bright Pucci brights we're used to, it's white with Edwardian fashion (we have Downton Abbey to thank for this trend!) and the statement shoes with the gorgeous crisp white silk that keeps it modern. 

Edwardian will be a difficult trend: there's a thin line between looking gorgeous and vintage and on trend and then looking as though you're in fancy dress but this Pucci dress is definitely the gorgeous vintage side. Simple, elegant and the perfect outfit for an amazing pair of shoes, what more could a girl want?
