Miss Petaluma On…White Out at Lanvin

This is supposed to be filed away for Resort 2011, but what with the warmer climes and Wimbledon, I think the HTT white look is spot on for the summer.  Fresh, cool and effortlessly stylish, an all white outfit epitomises the summer.  How to make it yours?  Play with texture, volume and layers and don’t forget to accessorise!  I intend to go for wooden beads, vintage floral scarves and gladiators.

Lanvin’s 2011 Resort show in New York was quite simply breathtaking, but what I particularly loved, aside from the expected ‘one day’ dresses, where model Sessilee Lopez’s afro white finale.

Maxi dresses should be Grecian style for a flattering and ethereal look

Ross-style white power suits, work in the heat with a feminine corsage and calf-length trousers

Tuck a classic white shirt into a full skirt for a boho work look, throw on a pair of round shades and scarf for that diva effect

I loved wearing broderie anglaise as a child, the sweetest little dresses, well here’s the grown up look.  Now I’ll stop you before you start to complain!  Yes white can get dirty (Vanish anyone?).  Because my how versatile it is, easy and cheap to buy.  White is the new black!
