Wimbledon White Style – Quiet Please!

Quiet please! Silence whilst we bring out our Wimbledon white style! Ah, we love old Wimbers, don’t you? Especially when Andy Murray’s playing, of course. We’re sticklers for tradition, and think good old-fashioned white tennis gear is most definitely the best.

So, we’re respecting to the All England Club rules  with our Wimbledon white style. White is actually a flattering, and sophisticated hue to wear. It looks crisp, fresh, clean and smart.

Add a touch of black, a little bit of gold, or a splash of some other colour, to lift it. Gorgeous white velvet jeans from French Connection (£75) look great with black. Add a two-tine bag to this outfit for fun (£35, was £96, French Connection).

White culottes (£32, Red Herring @ Debenhams) are bang on trend. Add a white blouse (£34.95, GAP) and tailored jacket (£69, JOY), some lace-up platforms (£59.99) and a white clutch (£12.99, both New Look) for a crisp, clean Wimbledon white style.

White, gently flared trousers (£24.99, H&M) are a summer alternative to jeans. If you do love jeans, team them with a broderie anglaise cami (£14, BHS), or a simple check print sleeveless blouse (£29, JOY), when the weather’s fine, and with Red Herring’s brilliant high-neck lace detail blouse (£30, Debenhams) when the night’s get cooler- watch out for this style come Autumn. Hippie perfection! Add a fringed bag, of course (£15.99, New Look).

Keep it sporty – sort-of – with a simple white denim jacket (£24.99) or on-trend white dungarees (£29.99), both from New Look. H&M’s natural white lace playsuit is adorable (£49.99). Team a simple white shift dress (£24.99, H&M) with some white platform sliders (£24.99, H&M) for a casual Wimbledon white style moment. Of go for uber-glam poolside style, with J by Jasper Conran’s cut-out swimsuit (£42, Debenhams).

wimbledon white style threeNothing says summer quite like a floaty white skirt. New Look’s sheer stripe midi skirt is beautiful and light (£19.99), and BHS’s white midi is simple and chic (£20). French Connection’s loose sleeveless v-neck blouse (£55) works with a skirt or trousers, and over at JOY there’s a gorgeous striped detailed white blouse (£35). White stilettos are cool, particularly this textured pair from H&M (£29.99). Or maybe you prefer white strappy sandals (£24.99), like these from New Look? Finally, a cut-out white shopper is the perfect summer carry-all bag (£19.99, H&M).

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!
