Paris Fashion Week AW 2012...Before Stella McCartney

Sharp, sleek and crisp, a white suit always looks current no matter what the season.

Keeping it pristine clean and white, however, is another matter entirely (bravo if you own and wear a white suit and have kidlets. Sticky little hands + white = a tricky combination) although the fashion editors/buyers/stylists rarely seem to have this issue (don't ask me how, they just don't!).

Wearing separates - a lovely crisp white blazer with jeans or a pair of off-white wide-leg summer weight trousers with a tank and espadrilles - halves the white induced anxiety levels :)

Recreate her fresh summery look (kind of):

Acne Tate silk-crepe blazer (with sheer back panel for interest + cooling capabilities!),  Joseph Sir stretch blazer, Thakoon suiting blazer (in ivory) or Topshop Ponte boyfriend blazer

Alice + Olivia Eric pants or Sandro pants

  6. @Mica - ha ha! Glad someone is with me in the keeping it pristine quest!

    @Naomi, @eloiselabetise, @monkeyshines, @lauren, @collections, @Bonnie, Clyde and Marni- it is lovely isn't it. And white always looks so fresh and lovely, Great with a tan (fake or otherwise:) I would even go so far as put a brightly coloured sandal/wedge with it for summer...

  8. Pitch perfect. Understated and elegant, yet feminine.
