Last September in the world’s fashion capitals, a dizzying array of style was seen on the runways. Trends showing influences ranging from 18th century Russia to African ethnic prints; light, flowing femininity to geometric minimalism made it difficult for fashionistas to determine what would be on trend for SS14.
But there was one style trend that definitely stood out: white.
Long shunned in favour of that perennial fashion favourite, black, white is having a moment. Angelic and light, white is far more gentle than black, allowing the women wearing it to shine, rather than making a bold statement itself.
Shown by mainstream heavyweights including Nina Ricci, Balenciaga, Celine and Chloe, in the world of ethical fashion, Outsider clothing has also shown some exceptional looks in white in its recent collection, the best of which we have chosen below.
Wear these looks with white accessories from Greenpeace-approved brand Valentino for a simpler look, or add red accessories from Valentino’s SS14 collection to really make them pop.
