How to wear the Spring / Summer 2012 trends: all white

by Sylvia

Spring 2012 trend all white

Long-term readers of this blog will know that I’m a big fan of white. Living in a hot climate, white is the perfect basic that I can combine with just about anything. So the all-white trend for this coming season suits me just fine! (see also my Spring / Summer 2012 trend report).

You can stay completely white for a nice serene look, but of course it’s also fun to jazz it up a bit. White is great for combining just about any accessory in any color with it. This may be the perfect way for you to incorporate this season’s brights trend into your wardrobe.

Here is how Zara has interoperated the all white trend sofar. I’m loving that nice all-white suit (even though it has challenging cropped legs) as well as their shoes.

Will you be embracing the all white trend this Spring and Summer?

I should, since it’s getting increasingly more tropical where I live. It’s approaching the 90s in March!

I don’t think there is anything prettier or more romantic than a simple white dress on a hot Summer day. With a tiny pair of sandals and a few gold bangles it is one of my favorite looks. And white jeans or a white pair of shorts go with anything – bright colors, prints, or pastels – but an all white outfit is perfection. I always wear white in the hot weather or on tropical vacations. 🙂

You are so right Suzanne!

I really want to encorporate white into my wardrobe this spring and summer, but I have very little of it. I guess I’ll have to shop for it!

Have fun shopping Heather. You can never go wrong with white!

I like white, but white doesn’t like me a lot. It is a hard colour for me, so I won’t dress all in white. I still have a white dress in the 2012 style from Sportmax, bought in 2010. It came with a fuchsia jacket which colour dóes suit me. And is very 2012. Although to me, it is a stupid jacket, I will put it on and pull my “isn’t this fabulous?”-face.
White skirt and trousers are already in my wardrobe. White is also very nice with brown, fashion or no fashion.

Just white makes me a bit pale as well, but that’s why have accessories! White is alos great to make other colours look fresh. Look forward to seeing that jacket some day…

I love white for summer, but like Greetje stark white is not my best colour, so I’ll be going for a pale cream instead, at least on my top half. Mixing shades of white and cream can work really well!

Absolutely. Cream suits my complexion better also. But white pants should look good on everyone if you combine it with the right colours or accessories.

White is definitely going to be big this season! In fact, it features heavily in our new collection, with bright splashes of colour from floral and graphic prints. That’s the beauty of white – it works with everything! Check out our sailor trousers, linen crops & Fiesta prints –
