Snowdrop White Style Weekly Wishlist

Spring is not quite in the air, yet, is it? It’s blinking freezing out there. But those gorgeous little hardy flowers, the snowdrops, have pushed through the ground, and are brightening up gardens everywhere.

So, snowdrop white style is this week’s Weekly Wishlist. Bright white, beautiful, snowdrop white to liven up your winter wardrobe.

Okay, we’re not suggesting you wear Jasper Conran’s cut-out white swimsuit (£42, Debenhams) in Scotland, but if you are off for some winter sun (jealous, us…er, of course not), then this should be on your list. A snowdrop white jumper might be better if you are staying at home, and we are coveting French Connection’s amazing frilled over-sized sweater (£89). Love!

snowdrop white fashion weekly wishlistSnowdrop white style is big this year. we know it can seem painful with our peely-wally Scottish skin, but white can be a flattering shade. H&M’s white suit trousers (£24.99) make a light alternative to a work skirt, and white jeans (£49.95, GAP), or dungarees (£29.99, New Look) are great for the weekends. If white isn’t your thing, perhaps just a bag to buy into the trend? New Look’s tall tote is fab (£24.99) and we love the classic white Kelly-style bag from J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams (£49).

Also at Debenhams, we love this crisp, clean, snowdrop white tie-jacket by Ben de Lisi for Principles (£60). White lace dresses aren’t just for brides! But maybe don’t wear this LWD from French Connection (£125) to a wedding? JOY’s white lace detail top (£32) is perfect with jeans, maybe even white jeans, if you’re bold enough?!

White shoes are great – try them. White sandals from Schuh (£60) are a fab summer staple, and we love New Look’s white brogues for summer (£27.99)

Snowdrop white will brighten up the darkest of days this winter – just watch out for puddles!

Michelle Keegan and a white jacket!

Michelle Keegan’s character Tina McIntyre has had a pretty rough week of it in Coronation Street! Poor Tina is not long for this world, we think. Who’d have thought that Rob could be so evil?!

But Michelle looked great at last weekend’s British Soap Awards where she eschewed the traditional dress code – ie, a dress – and went for a monochrome tuxedo look, which matched her partner Mark Wright perfectly!

Michelle Keegan Tina Coronation street soap awardsMichelle’s jacket was white, with a black stripe detail. White is a big on-trend colour this year, and a white jacket is the easiest way to buy into the trend. A white jacket is also a pretty fail-safe summer wardrobe staple.

It’s an easy way to look bright and summery – just make sure you keep it clean. So, we’ve picked a Top Ten white jackets for you to get you started on your quest for your perfect white jacket for the summer.

From black trimmed natural white, to brilliant white linen, to pure white denim jackets and kimonos, there are plenty of styles out there to choose from.

Make like Michelle and mix your white jacket with black for a monochrome look. Or wear it with florals, or prints. A white jacket on white looks brilliant – mix your textures to add an extra dimension to your outift.
