May, and it's still flipping freezing, but this fab jumper from White Coco comes with added zingy stripes. Hello sunshine!
I think we’re just about ready to start the new season shopathon, don’t you? Forget about schlepping into London, when you can find SS17 top trends covered at White Coco – a gorgeous boutique to shop online or pop in to their beautiful store on the Bond Street of Berkshire (aka Bridge Street, Hungerford). From sassy tops with this season’s statement sleeve, stroke-it-all-day cashmere knits, day-to-night summer dresses and cool accessories, you’ll find it here.
Sally and Sarah hunt down pieces for the collection from all over Europe – ensuring the range is effortlessly stylish, a little bit quirky but always fun. And they all get given names, so you can consider them fashion friends.
Can we first discuss the crocheted top with statement sleeve? (It’s a nod to the high street numbers plastered all over Insta but better.) Say hi to Anja (that’s her name), £120. For anyone partial to spillages (*ahem* that’ll be me), all white could cause palpitations, but the hint of black makes it more wearable. It’s guaranteed to make an entrance and will pep up your jeans. Try as I might, I cannot seem to get myself out denim. Something to do with covering pasty legs.
The knitwear is perfect for chilly spring days and cool summer nights. Thin knits are available in beautiful, bold colours and fun details. I have the neon yellow stripe on my lust list and one day it will be mine.
If you have a special occasion to buy for, you can avoid twinning with the beautiful Victoria dress. It’s a stunner with an open back and would work for any summer event, wedding or dressed down with sandals. And at £85, it’s great value. The Lilian Coat also has that versatility. A work of art, you can wear this with jeans or with something smarter, but it’ll make a real statement.
The great thing about White Coco’s collection is that each piece will work hard in your wardrobe. Not just a one off that gathers dust in your wardrobe (I have lots of Cinderella frocks) but really versatile pieces that can be smart and casual. With lots of lovely accessories to pep up an outfit like these AMAZING India pom pom bags.
