I don’t know about you but over lockdown I think the fact I have not been out and about has meant I have stopped relying on the highstreet chains and have focused on smaller labels. Although we cannot wait for the highstreet to open up again and be able to meander into shops, I hope I will continue to search out new and interesting boutiques.
One such label which I has caught my eye is White Coco. White Coco is a boutique which has built it’s online presence through realising that when shopping online we want a relaxed, lifestyle experience with designs which will work easily into our current lives.
I was luckily enough to be able to play “dress up” last week with some of the new White Coco pieces and found myself gravitating towards their skirts. A skirt can instantly lift a T-shirt and trainer day yet is comfortable to wear and doesn’t stop us going about our day. From a simple satin slip to the prettiest tulle full length skirt, White Coco have all bases covered.
One of my most worn skirts in my wardrobe is an animal print long skirt. It is so versatile and can look great with a black vest, sandals and denim jacket in the Summer months whilst boots and a chunky knit mean it can be worn when it’s cooler. The Cassie skirt, which is available in cream or khaki would be a well worn addition to a wardrobe. Here I have teamed it with the XX knit.
Slip skirts are constantly seen as a sophisticated way to dress up a day time look. This Chloe skirt in navy looks great with jumpers to contrast with the fluid fabric. In these shots I’ve teamed with with the cosy Frankie navy funnel neck jumper and the beautifully soft Florence fine knit which is a great option as Spring settles in.
I have to say, this is possibly my favourite skirt from the White Coco collection. The Camille skirt is available in several colours and this blush option works brilliantly with just about anything (I’m wearing it here with the Chatty slipover from White Coco and my over 20 year old cowboys boots). A long tulle skirt may seem a bit much but it really can look daytime ready teamed with boots or trainers and a hoodie or T-shirt so it is not relegated to evening outings only.
However, to dress the Camille skirt up when it does come to heading out further than the school run or shops, put on a neat black top (this one is the Dominique top from White Coco) and ballet pumps for a Prada-esque look. I also decided to try this look with the very chic Stephie skirt. It’s a cooler pink tulle skirt with small black polka dots which creates a French vibe, i feel (swipe the photo to see!).
I have to say, the three styles of skirts I have featured from White Coco can really make the basis for a ever-changing wardrobe. It is so simple to mix and match tops and shoes to create looks to suit what is going on in your day. I don’t think we should keep items for “going out”. Make the most of any item you purchase and enjoy it. Shop smart by really seeing how a piece can work with your existing wardrobe and have some fun!
