There comes a time every summer, partly due to the furore surrounding Wimbledon, when all we want to do is wear white. Sadly, it’s not the easiest hue to sport, and there are plenty of sartorial traps that come with the pursuit of resembling Bianca Jagger circa 1970. The easiest way to work the trend is via great, clean accessories; particularly pearly bags and shoes. Luckily, we’ve got the lot. Bring on the freshest, brightest whites around…
If it is the British tennis tournament that’s got you in the mood for white, why not take a leaf out of the players’ books and do a box fresh sneaker? Miss KG’s 'Loco' trainers are the lightest, comfiest way to get around town this summer. Wear them like the street style stars with ankle-grazing jeans, or with a ditsy tea dress for weekend barbecues and brunches. If your sporty kicks really are taking you to the local tennis courts, or some other similarly athletic cause, bring along your changing room essentials in Kurt Geiger London’s 'Violet' tote bag.
White heels are experiencing a real comeback. Get ahead of the trend this summer by picking up a pair of Miss KG’s 'Faun' sandals. These are ideal for evenings on holiday when you want to inject a touch of glamour to your look and equally brilliant for summer weddings or garden parties, worn with floral dresses or pastel hues. Keep things white from head-to-toe by completing your look with Kurt Geiger London’s white tweed 'Kensington' Bag, or add just a smidge of colour via the 'Fabric Plum' cross body. FYI, white heeled kicks are here to stay for next season (just ask Balenciaga and The Row), and our best-selling 'Strut' ankle boots (a favourite of Kendall Jenner) have just come back into stock. Buy now or regret later!
Our preferred flats of-the-moment are undoubtedly slides. And while we’ve literally been living in Kurt Geiger London’s 'Bloom' pair, we’re ready for something a bit more ‘high summer’. Enter three of Carvela’s best buys: the 'Kream', 'Kake' and 'Kash' sandals. The former will do just fine for those after something really laidback. Perfect with boyfriend jeans and cut-offs, they’ll take you from weekend strolls around the shops to poolside mini breaks. The latter are sure to be a hit amongst those armed with a bit of a thing for bling. Want to take your slides from day to night? Pair these embellished, buckled beauties with statement earrings and an LBD, or even wide-leg culottes and a little cami for a night out on the town.
