S/S 12 : WHITE

Whites grew up this spring, and were sent down the catwalk looking crisp and feminine. Some are calling it minimalist, but with the saturated brights and intense prints seen in most Spring 2012 collections, it is the head-to-toe dove hues that are standing out. To achieve the look without appearing bridal- although it is hard to imagine that the trend wasn't at all initiated by Kate Middleton's wedding gown- keep dresses above the knee and avoid going any further unless it involves a trouser.
