Swimwear designers have fully embraced classic white for their AW11 and SS12 collections. The ultimate tan enhancer, white is so versatile & can be mixed and matched with pretty much any colourway. A couple of classic white beach pieces will form the base of the most fashion-forward beach wardrobes this season. A white beach dress can be accessorized in a multitude of ways - chunky gold is good, as is wood, turquoise, silver, colour ... the list is endless. Key pieces ...
The choice is broad style-wise - from contemporary to retro, pretty ruffle trims to luxuriously embellished bodices. Some designers have incorporated white more heavily into their collections, the ones to watch are Melissa Odabash, Aguaclara and Seafolly.
Seafolly Beachside Bliss Playsuit
The Seafolly Beachside Bliss Playsuit is pefect for throwing on over a bikini on the beach. No shoulder strap tan lines to contend with either.
Melissa Odabash Valencia One Piece
Love the neckline here. The Valencia One Piece is signature Melissa Odabash - classic and understated, with a twist. So flattering, too.
Melissa Odabash Sharize Kaftan
Hippy chic with a contemporary twist. The Sharize Kaftan is the epitome of relaxed elegance .
Luxurious comfort, perfect for the beach.
The first hat is a woven Melissa Odabash cowboy hat which complements the playsuit's laid back look perfectly. A versatile piece, great with shorts and t shirt too.
Hat number 2 is a Melissa Odabash Cameron Panama Hat which matches the classy look of the Valencia One piece.
The final hat is a floppy brimmed ViX Ibiza hat is the perfect match for the laid back luxury of the Sharize kaftan.
