A clean WHITE palette - what to wear...

I have been spending a lot of time staring at my wardrobe, it’s not a new hobby no, but my wardrobe is beyond cluttered. The insides look like a clothing bomb has gone off: arms of tops poking out, trousers piled high and jumpers carelessly thrown on the side. Y’know when you can’t bring yourself to look at something because it’s THAT bad? Yeah that. But whilst the wardrobe itself is a mess there doesn't seem to be any organisation or pattern to my clothing tastes – how on earth do I manage to even put an outfit together?!

It got me thinking about a wardrobe detox, is that even a thing? I don’t know. But whilst last years clashing prints and colours were bang on trend and after I have filled my wardrobe with way too many clashes, a part of me longs to clear and calm my wardrobe and go all white. Don’t get me wrong, I am not the worlds biggest WHITE fan, but there is something nicely pure about it and cleansing. 

White was seen all over the catwalks for the Spring/Summer 2013 season, with Valentino and Stella McCartney playing with cute broderie anglaise and clean precise structure at Prada, but with the 7ft, size nothing models sporting the colour, it’s a little hard to work out how us (as in, me and you) are going to be able to wear them and afford it. Here are my top picks for wearing White this season whatever size you are, all from our humble high street:

Crochet Waist Dress £38 Topshop, Nude wedge £45 Dorothy Perkins, Cameo Collar necklace £16.50 Topshop

White Skinny Jeans £14.99 H + M, Breton Stripe Tee £25.00 Boden, Posionberry shoes £195 Kurt Geiger, Pastel Necklace £8 Ever Ours
Monochrome Silhouette Dress £37.50 SimplyBe, Waterfall White jacket £19.50 SimplyBe, Chain Leather cuff £30 Whistles

I'm definitely warming to the idea of a white colour palette in my otherwise hectic wardrobe. What about you? are you a white wearer? and do you cleanse your wardrobe?

I've noticed that my wardrobe is pretty fitting to your description, and full of crap that I hardly wear so I too am trying to clear out! I'd love to wear white more but I always seem so drawn to warm, dark colours! Will have to make a more conscious effort.
