White for Spring






Picture Source: http://www.style.com

It seems like every season white doesn't go out of style. White in winter, white in summer; designers will find any excuse to incorporate this shade into their collection. Having white as a trend is almost mandatory. Lets be honest, we can all see it coming.

On par with florals (always 'in') and nautical stripes (just doesn't quit), it was unsurprising to see white on the Spring Summer 2015 runways. What is interesting is how each individual label interprets it, bringing something fresh to the table through texture, shape, cut and styling.

Above are my top picks from NYFW S/S 2015.

I have one problem with floral bustiers.

While they're youthful, effortless and sun appropriate, I risk looking like a festival hopping teenager stuck in the mindset that 'less is more'. Or to put it bluntly ... a twelvie.

As such a more urban-cross-streetstyle aesthetic was adopted here in the efforts of smartening up the generic bustier. I've noticed many young Sydneysiders like to wear crop tops with Vans or Converse. But switching the sneakers for some chunky platform sandals instantly elevates the outfit. The ones I own just happen to have epic laces, cut outs and a mock croc texture. Now that's what I call real shoes.

Chuck in a fedora because it's a tried and tested method to add more sophistication. And finally any skirt that's white and pleated has a tick in my book; it screams 'I belong on the tennis court even though I can't serve for s***'. BOOM, the result is a little more masculine, a little more sporty and a lot less juvenile.

An intriguing look into the backstage antics at the New York Fashion Week Chromat, Peter Som & Rodebjer S/S 2015 shows.  I've heard it's absolute chaos behind-the-scenes.
