Spring Dresses from The White Company – One Blink and They’ll be Gone

Maxi Dress from The White Company
You may not automatically think of The White Company when it comes to buying dresses.  Bedding, cute clothes for little ones, pamper gifts, bathroom accessories?  Yes.  But dresses???

Think again.  The dresses from The White Company are not designed to be statement dresses but in terms of understated elegance, easy pack and easy wash they’re very hard to beat.  They are always well constructed and the fabric is lovely and soft.

The White Company produces different designs for their dress collection each season, in cool blues and minimalist neutrals, and all are designed to be feminine and flattering.  As someone who has collected quite a few and travels with them everywhere I know that they can work from dawn to dusk.   Accessorise with a pair of high gold sandals and some jewellery and you won’t need much else for cocktails on the verandah.

Best of all they wash perfectly and don’t need ironing provided you hang them up immediately after a short tumble in the dryer. 

One of the problems of these dresses is that once you start wearing them you won’t want to wear anything else, they’re so flattering and comfortable.  Be warned, they sell out amazingly fast, and if you don’t order quickly you’ll find yourself phoning round the stores looking for that perfect dress you’ve found, in the right size……..
