Make no mistake; this trend may look simple but it’s definitely not boring. By combining different textures like transparent chiffon over basic cotton, or using various weighted fabrics together like silk and leather, you can carry off the ultra-chic white-on-white trend with fashionable ease.

White has always been the guiding anchor for every colour trend – as featured in collections all year round. As well as being a safe colour that everyone can wear, it pretty much goes with every other colour in the palette. This season however, white is the main hue many designers are focusing on and with that births a whole new variety of whites to covet.

Nina Ricci and Ellie Saab were two such designers who traded technicolour palettes for neutral ones comprising white and cream textures – featuring barely-there lace dresses under a more substantial set of woollen coats, resulting in looks that are all-white, crisp and very clean. Accessories too received the whitening treatment this season. Catwalks paved the way for PVC white loafers and peep-toe ankle boot wedges – two footwear trends that have gotten us all cooing over in the office! You too can get the all-white trend right by playing with layers of different weighted materials. Take your cue from Oscar De La Renta's SS14 show, which featured crochet, brilliant white calf-skimming dresses, over very short body suits – almost resembling ’50s Saint Tropez bathing suits. Sport this look and transform a beach cover-up into the perfect Summer party dress.

This Summer, we see the cool, crisp, non-colour look leave the beaches of Saint Tropez and arrive into the real world! Make the look your own with must-have accessories including cat-eye sunnies – the perfect shape for any face, and swap bold necklaces for statement cuffs to add a touch of divine glamour to a simple white tee and jeans ensemble.

There’s no denying that white is indeed having a moment, and to ensure you have yours too, we’ve gathered our favourite all-white pieces to guide you into a cleaner, fresher wardrobe – one that’s guaranteed to carry you right through to Fall.

Just be careful; white is the cleanest colour around and spills and stains aren’t cool!

If you wore Pedal Pushers, rented videos, dreamt of being part of the Sailor Moon group, had scrunchies in your hair, plastic chokers around your neck, and most importantly still know the words to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air opening credit rap, then it is safe to assume that you grew up in the 90’s. The Spice Girls were our goddesses. If you didn’t want to be them then you had a crush on them, and if anyone dissed them then you whipped out your girl power attitude quicker than Peter Andre could ever take his top off!

The SS14 shows were flooded with 90’s references; patterned leggings, halter necks, the two-piece and the re-named flatforms. Designers have majorly flash-backed to the 90's, bringing checked shirts and oversized trousers back onto our radar, and boy have they done well. Jill Sander's cropped tops and Balmain’s double denim had us all running to our loft's to pull out old 90’s clothing we thought we’d never see again. Whilst the super slinky, lingerie-style dresses are a sure date night dress, worthy of a Sex in the City, Sarah Jessica Parker tribute.

The 90’s were a time when you could pretty much wear whatever you wanted. Throw your boyfriend's oversized tee on over a pair of pop-socks and Doc Martins, and you’d be the coolest kid in town. Now back in the new millennium, bring that look up-to-date by adding a leather skirt to your boyfriend tee, and slip on your slinkiest heels whilst rocking last nights bed hair and you’re good to go. If you’re a little more daring and have the abs to rock it, cut a t-shirt into a cropped tee and team it with a pair of ripped denim boyfriend jeans and double strap Birkenstocks. A pair of white round sunglasses are a perfect subtle nod to the 90’s trend, and you won’t find anything comfier than a white tee and denim dungaree duo to see you through the weekend.

Either way the 90’s are here to stay for the summer, and so here at ZALORA, we have compiled a list of wardrobe must-haves for you to go back in time with, whilst staying way ahead of the crowd of course.

With Summer fast approaching, it can only mean one thing – festival season is just around the corner. With that in mind, it is only right we begin to plan our all-important outfits. Ensembles that will carry you from day to night; from swaying to an acoustic set, to dancing your socks off at 3am; and most importantly, from queuing for organic granola in the morning to a greasy late night burger!

The USA hosts some of the world’s best music festivals, what with Coachella, SXSW, Lollapalooza, Burning Man and Electric Daisy Carnival all happening across the Summer months. These are key events that should not be missed, but if you fancy staying a little closer to home then the Rainforest World Music Festival – happening over the weekend of June 20 in Malaysia – promises a jolly good time of cultural music exchange, with music workshops and jamming sessions held in traditional Bornean longhouses.

Here at ZALORA, we have put together a selection of items you may want to add to your festival wardrobe to ensure you are well-prepared for all the merry-making and are spot on-trend.

Don’t forget, rumour has it that the Instagram servers crashed due to the amount of people trying to post selfies at Coachella. So with that in mind, it is even more crucial that you’ve got ’em outfits all sorted.

Good Luck!
