I posted recently about particular brands I love, and one of those is White Stuff. I've worked with White Stuff on the blog for a couple of years and I am always thrilled to do so; the brand is both exciting and stylish, and certainly in recent seasons there have been so many lovely items that have caught my eye.
I'm not a huge fan of colour, and this is something White Stuff is renowned for, so I was thrilled to see that there is a definite monochrome theme to some of the high summer pieces. I'm not talking plain black and white, either; navys and greys sit next to soft ivories and taupes, highlighting gentle prints in similar palettes. Cuts are simple but edgy; a linen jacket looks restyled from a hoodie and softly flowing, patterned shorts and lightly cuffed trousers are reminiscent of the 'pajama tailoring' seen on the catwalks.
There is colour (a little) but it is muted and tactile; morroccan inspired prints in touchable fabrics and finishings layered in the same colours as the fabric beneath lend an elevated look to clean cut shorts, jackets and shell tops. Accessories are just as touchable; woven basket bags provide the perfect accompanyment to the washed tones and sumptuously soft suede and leather sandals complete the look.
The monochrome summer collection, as it is aptly titled, is a beautifully pared down selection of pieces to add in to your wardrobe as a lovely refresh to a classic white tee or pair of love-worn denims. You can view the full selection here.
