Now the sun’s making more of an appearance, we can start thinking about wearing more white. White flatters our complexions making us appear more tanned and healthy, it ensures we stand out when we walk down the street and the colour just makes us feel bright and summery.
However, it can be difficult to find the confidence to wear white at the start of the season as it’s such a change from the dark clothes that are usually worn during winter. The easiest way to find some style inspiration is to look at how celebrities are wearing white and we can’t help but notice Rita Ora’s been wearing the colour a lot recently. As Rita’s a trendsetter and not a follower and a former judge on America’s Got Talent, she carefuly considers her outfits and the fact she’s gone for white so often means that it’s a key colour this season.
Let’s have a closer look at a couple of ways she’s matched white items together:
(1) The Feminine White Summer Dress Look
For a casual walk around London, Rita opted for a lovely white day dress, which is similar to the Superdry boho beauty dress. It doesn’t matter that it’s not yet blazing sunshine weather as you can put a white cover up on over the top like the V by Very sequin & lurex cream wrap. Finish with some fierce black ankle boots to provide a contrast to the white outfit – the V by Very black lace up ankle boots are ideal – and then top off with the Jimmy Choo more rocktsud sunglasses.
(2) The Fierce White Trouser Suit Look
A white trouser suit is classically chic but Rita makes hers even more luxurious with a soft white jumper underneath and a longline blazer as opposed to one that finishes mid-thigh. The jumper is beautifully soft and a roll neck will protect your neck from spring breezes – try the Selected femme mali roll neck that looks lovely with the Lavish Alice waterfall jacket. White trousers look better looser rather than super fitted like the V by Very linen mix trousers. Notice that Rita finishes the look with some open toe sandals, which are a cuter and girlier than court shoes. Rita’s sandals are similar to the Miss Selfridge bow detail sandals.
Are you feeling more summery now? Rita’s two outfits show that you can be both smart and pretty in white so have some fun experimenting!
