Feelin’ All White: House of Fraser Wears the White Trend

It can get a little hot amongst the hustle and bustle, so we’ve given the lightest and brightest of trends a go… that’s right, the House of Fraser office has embraced summer’s white trend (and somehow managed to avoid coffee, food and makeup spillages).

We’ll admit, white isn’t the easiest of shades to master. It’s not exactly commuter-friendly and it’s always scary dusting off your favourite white dress after months of very little sunshine, but we’ve managed to steer clear of faithful black and grey FOR ONE DAY to bring you clean-cut white in all it’s glory.

If white fills you with fear, try wearing a classic summery shift under your favourite denim jacket or adding edgy black ankle boots for a finishing touch that packs a punch. A vintage-inspired necklace will liven up an understated white shirt.


White nails are not only on-trend, but offer an easy way to wear this tricky colour. Inspired by the beauties of the Sixties, this polish works throughout the seasons – perfect for your well-deserved summer holiday or teamed with a classic LBD throughout the wintery months.

For those that desire a pop of colour, try a slim-fitting patterned trouser or a vibrant heel. We love how Kate (middle image) has teamed her classic white tee with a pair of emerald kicks and pretty floral pants – just add a sharp blazer for the boardroom.


Complete your outfit with a few brilliant white accessories. Laser cutting is big news for SS13 and this intricate finish exudes a contemporary cool – look out for clutch bags, totes and leather jewellery with this detail.

And finally, if you’re looking for a little bling, choose a chunky jeweled necklace… TA-DA!


Will you be trying SS13’s white trend, and how will you be wearing it?

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
