Classic Clothing Series: The Little White Dress – Topshop

Winter white (off white, cream) is one of my favourite colour choices at this time of year. A bit of a fashion taboo (white? in the dark, dreary, wet, cold and sludgy winter I hear you say?) but whites are guaranteed to see you stand out in a sea of brown, black and grey.

When I returned to London last month I made a bee-line for Topshop to stock up on some staples whilst part of my wardrobe was shipped back to the UK. This open back dress in one of my favourite ‘flippy’ fit and flare styles screamed ‘buy me’ because of its potential for styling different ways.  I’ve worn it with my Helmut Lang leather jacket, Wolford tights and knee-high boots; wrapped up underneath a chunky knit and with a colourful blazer*.

White isn’t an absence of colour – rather it is a shining and affirmative one.  I think every wardrobe should include a little white dress like this one.

White is also about wholeness and completion; equality, balance, independence and new beginnings. Quite fitting for me right now I feel as I return to the UK.  I hope all my American friends had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday! It was my birthday this week, I had an amazing time – I’m still celebrating….

Wearing: Open Back Flippy Tunic Dress from Topshop.

    And I (deeply) understand this creamy option, uncluttered § refined way to punctuate § underline your delicate prestance § your upper scrumptious charm I (shyly) must add (“Wink from a kind aesthete”) !
    a presto, Antoine

    I’ve loved the Classic Series so far, Sarah – so much so that I’m actually tempted to do one of my own! As fashion bloggers, I think it’s much easier for us to get caught up in what’s new and exciting in the world of fashion and forget about the wonderful essentials that will get us through a number of real life occasions, not just look lovely in photos for a post 🙂 This little Topshop number is a beauty.
