Vogue suggests that we "rediscover the power of head-to-toe white. Flawlessly chic - this is pure, unadulterated style. Granted, white is a perennial summer favourite, but if this classic non-colour doesn't at first excite, then find comfort in the fact that this season's fun is to be had with shape, form and fabric. Spring's white parade comprises prairie styles, architectural shifts and sweet macrame slips, in addition to a host of slouchy tailoring. In addition, the collections usher in a whole new wave of shirt dressing, from frilled and flamboyant to stiff and starched." Why not complete your white look with accessories such as these gorgous white pearl stud earrings, starting from just £11.99.

Vogue reports that "Lip-smacking ice-cream shades in sheer and floaty fabrics give this season's girlish looks a sugar-coated glamour. Spring's procession of pastel tones - baby blue, pastel pink, pale yellow, spearmint and softest lilac - mesmerises like a gentle lullaby. This mood is softened yet further by way of delicate chiffons, tulle and wispy feathers." Accessorise with soft pink pearls or perhaps silver stud earrings. Whichever you decide remember to think feminine.

Pearls of Wisdom
I recently read that on Wednesday 9th December, Bonhams Bond Street hosted 'The Art of Jewels: Fine Jewellery and Iconic Gems' sale. One of the major highlights of the sale was a stunning pearl necklace, belonging to Lady Houston, the renowned philanthropist and benefactor.
The double-row necklace with graduated pearls had an estimated price of £30,000 to £50,000, but sold for an impressive value of £311,200. It is made up of large natural pearls of outstanding quality, between 5.8 and 12.8mm. Interestingly, their erstwhile owner, Lady Houston, donated a considerable amount of her personal fortune in support of British aviation, which would eventually lead to the design of the Spitfire, an integral part of our national defence during WW2.
