Bold and bright colors aside, nothing shouts Spring and Summer quite like the colour white. It’s clean crisp quality makes us feel cool, refreshed and ready for warm weather. A few well chosen white items and accessories can update your Autumn outfits for the new season. Here’s how to use white to reinvent your wardrobe for Spring:

  • White jacket – make this a Spring staple and create a contrast by matching it up with the black, red and grey tops that you wore in Autumn.
  • White pants – replace your black slacks with a white pair and refresh the look of dark jackets or tops.
  • White tops – substitute white tops for dark colours underneath jackets and knitwear.
  • White shoes, bags and belts – transform a cold weather outfit into a warm weather one by adding modern white accessories like patent white peep-toe shoes (which contrast beautifully against dark blue jeans), a skinny white belt or white tote.

Everyone can wear white when it’s matched up in the correct way, so don’t let your fair skin prevent you from doing so. Investing in basic white items will increase the ROI of your wardrobe and have you looking spic and span for Spring.
