Winter white

Get your stain remover at the ready ladies, as the most high-maintenance trend becomes this season’s ultimate style crush – all white.

Anyone watching the Fashion Week frows will have spotted a white wash, so we can officially declare that black is out and white is in. Fashion editors were ditching their mourning outfits en masse, for an up-beat take on monochrome dressing.

From sumptuous leather biker jackets down to their 4 inch stilettos, the Fashion Week style mavericks rocked head-to-toe winter white across multiple layers, varying textures and tailored separates.

So keep animals and small children at arm’s length, find a local dry cleaner and rock that showroom-perfect look this autumn/winter!

Are you ready to take the colour out of your closet?
