Keep your look red-hot with cool winter whites


Katie Wright casts her eye over celeb fashion for seasonal inspiration.

Coats: If white is an uncommon fixture in your wardrobe, but you're not keen on a big overhaul, the best way to incorporate it is through outerwear.

Follow Meghan Markle's lead and wrap yourself up in an ivory trench, combining minimalist elegance with floaty femininity.

Not only will it keep you cosy while temperatures plummet toward the minus numbers but, as the ultimate neutral, it'll complement all your pre-existing outfits, making a bold statement without any risk of clashing.

● Reiss Hetty Belted Wrap-Front Coat, currently reduced to £190 from £295

● Karen Millen Cotton Trench Coat, £299

Dresses: It can be tricky to pull off a white dress without looking like you're attempting to upstage an unsuspecting bride, but actresses Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Charlotte Hope prove that it can be done, and done well.

In fact, a white dress is the coolest way to do black-tie right now, and if that means shopping from the bridal department, so be it (unless you are actually a wedding guest, in which case steer well clear).

Sleek accessories and understated jewellery complete the look.

● Monsoon Henrietta Embellished Short Bridal Dress, £349

Suits: Trouser suits have been making a massive comeback in fashion recently, the once fussy form of tailoring now a viable option day or night.

Take your cue from models Arizona Muse and Ashley James by choosing a longline jacket and teaming it with wide-leg trousers to give your look a relaxed feel.

Add a pop of colour with crimson lipstick or bright court shoes.

● Wallis White Blazer, £50, and Wide Leg Trousers , £40 (available from February)
