White Here, White Now

April 12, 2012
This Spring has been all about colour and florals. But while going through some pictures the other day (inspirational search for summer must-haves) I realized that almost half the items on my list were either completely white or dominated by the colour white. Then it dawned on me that most people are scared to rock that colour because of too many reasons. First off, it’s the hardest colour to keep clean. You become extra cautious especially as wine, paint and blood stains are sick to get rid of.
Secondly, it is kind of a hard colour to pull off. I mean, you don’t want to end up looking like it’s the day of your christening. But what the heck, it wouldn’t be Spring if no one indulged. So here are a few of my best white looks and white finds if you wanna get White Here, White Now.

Eku Edewor

Eku looks so chic in this combo. Especially craving that cardigan.

I am bonkers about the way these girls have worn their lovely white dresses. With bright colours. That clutch rocks!

Look effortless chic in a white ensemble.

Solange Knowles sure loves her some white!

Miranda Kerr in a white bodycon number that not many people can pull off.

I went crazy when I saw this white jumpsuit on Riri. The fit is impeccable. Casual yet so sexy. She looks very comfy in it. Love the back design but I don’t know if going bra-less will work for everyone. Certainly, doesn’t work for me and my girls:)

Model Tolula in a classic white Grecian dress. Heart this. Not sure I would pair them with those shoes though. Think strappy heels.

Keri Hilson in a white jumpsuit

Jennifer Hudson

Without much further ado, here are some of my must have White Goodies that will drive you insane.

Top on the list is the Chanel bag of my dreams.

Thanks for stopping by this morning. Don’t go just yet. Linger by for the next Style Diary which will be mind-blowing. And on a totally unrelated note, am linking this post to the ‘Let’s Move’, music video by Beyonce which totally got me happy-dancing this morning. Just thought I’d share. Enjoy!!
