THE WHITES OF SPRING

Fashion designers and artists have long been inspired by nature and one only has to take a walk in the countryside to see a host of wild flora with a diverse selection of  colour, textures and shapes. Springtime in the United Kingdom is heralded by the flowering of the Hawthorn. The May Flower as it's known, is preceded by wild flowers such as Sorrel, Anenome, Stitchwort, Ransom and the delicate lace-like Cow Parsley. No capsule wardrobe would be complete without dresses, skirts, tops and trousers in pure white. For holiday hot-spots from beach to the bar, plain white cotton, Broiderie Anglais or linen is always so elegantly cool. For a day at the races or on a special occasion opt for crepe, chiffon, satin or lace. Today we will focus on French Connection Spring Summer Collection which boasts some divine drapes and romantic ruffles. Dance the night away in floaty chiffon, 70s maxi or embellished crepe babydoll. This aptly named Lark Rise Lace Dress has a scoop neckline with a scalloped crochet trim, sheer long sleeves is just perfect for an afternoon garden party or summer festival. Wear with Jules Sandal and Cleo Haze embellished clutch.
