SS13's whites suffer from a split personality: modernist versus intricate. Modern swathes of crisp white create a simple yet compelling feel at Victoria Beckham and Jil Sander. The contrast? A touch of frivolity, with frills and embellishment. From Simone Rocha's elaborate lace skirts to Emilio Pucci's layered dresses, the look is unashamedly feminine.
Pale doesn't have to be plain. Look for intricate patterns that let your skin – and sex appeal – shine through.
White shoes, for so long a style gaffe, suddenly feel right again. Oscar de la Renta's delicate cut-out pumps, with a slim stiletto heel, are a future classic.
