Summer is awash with white in every shade, from ivory and eggshell to brilliant and magnolia. It may seem a little intimidating at first – what with the potential for coffee, ketchup and lipstick spills and smudges – but as you'll see ahead, it's actually a pleasantly easy colour to wear.
For runways inspiration, you could take notes from Simone Rocha's SS18 hyper-feminine lead and pair white Mary Janes with a matching frothy dress and pearl hair slides; alternatively, Kaia Gerber lived out our workwear dreams at Isabel Marant, in a white puffed-sleeve blouse and trousers of the same shade. The classic white shirt was reimagined in a plethora of inventive ways by Victoria Beckham (as part of a head-to-toe white look), Preen (spliced and reworked), and Adam Selman (loose-fitting, made-for-Miami-Beach, with open cuffs).
Pastel hues may rule this spring but the versatility of white – worn top-to-toe or as the standout piece in your get-up – should secure its place in your wardrobe. And much like black, it goes with nearly every print, colour and texture under the sartorial sun.
