Trend Spotting – by Katie Doherty

This summer as like every S/S collection is full of colour! In our miserable Emerald Isle it is essential that we add colour to our wardrobes not only in our choice of clothing but in our make up also. White has made a major influence on the basis of all outfits this summer, with many wearing all white (which I think is fabulous!). This trend all though it may seem plain, is really anything but. It is the perfect opportunity to add loads of colour, accessories and be very different as you have a blank canvas to work with. It is great for those who may not be as confident wearing bright colours or mad patterns. By adding so much as a bright pink lip or orange for those who are more spontaneous makes all the difference. So down below I have my top 5 white items of clothing this summer. So hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for your perfect white canvas below. Enjoy!



1. CREAM BANDEAU JUMPSUIT – River Island €75

This jumpsuit may be a little on the pricey side but it is certainly an investment piece that you will have forever. If you are conscious about your legs this piece is perfect as it hides them and those not cling.


2. Odeta White 90s Strappy Mini Shift Dress – Missguided.eu €25.99

This is my all time favourite white staple this summer. It is perfect for petite frames as its loose and has a high neck. Many girls are obsessed with prominent collar bones and with the thin, spaghetti strap it really highlights them in this dress.


3.  MiH Jeans The Gainsbourg Shirt In White Stripe – asos.com – RRP €173.23 – €87.32.

Not only is this shirt an absolute bargain it suits all shapes and sizes and is suitable for all occasions. Its classy, elegant and the collar adds a quirkiness to any outfit you choose to pair it with.


4. Motel Dove Sheer Sleeve Dress in White – motelrocks.com – €50

This dress is very light and free flowing, again it doesn’t cling and it very flattering to all shapes and sizes. It can also be worn as a top tucked in to shorts or trousers. Its very fresh, simple and edgy. I like it a lot and think its a great canvas to add accessories or bright lipstick and nail varnish.


5. Verity Skort In White – missguided.eu – €23.39

As skorts are very fashionable at the moment, I felt it was necessary to include one in my top 5. Skorts are great because you don’t have to worry about flashing anyone and you can also show off the femininity of a skirt, ideal. This one is very good value and has handy little pockets too.
