The new season is finally upon us, which means it’s time for a wardrobe revamp! One of the biggest trends for the season ahead is undoubtedly minimal white. While white may usually appear more frequently in the summer season, designers are having an ‘Ice Queen’ inspired moment and have given it a wintry spin. Thankfully, the trend is elegant and ultimately timeless, so it’s not just a fad that will look tired once the season is over. A beautiful white dress never fails to impress and looks effortlessly sophisticated. Teamed with metallic or bright accessories, select a style that flatters your figure, and can be dressed up or down so you can get dual use from your purchase. Try a gold choker like this one from Topshop to complete your look.

Stars have already been spotted wearing this look. Angelina Jolie recently wowed at a premiere in a strapless figure-hugging white gown – completely minimal except for a hip-accenting peplum which showed off her hourglass figure, Angelina looked like a modern Grace Kelly as she walked the red carpet. Emma Roberts opted for an edgier style when she attended a Couture Fashion Week event – her statement cut-out one-shoulder dress looked amazing with her chosen bun hairdo and silver accessories. Bond girl Olga Kurylenko styled her sleeveless patterned mini-dress with nude heels and natural makeup for a more relaxed take on the trend. Check out this similar dress by Marc by Marc Jacobs.

This is a classic look that can be worn by all sizes and shapes – you can pick up the latest trends in plus-sizes at Spotted on the runway at shows such as Proenza Schouler and Christian Dior, a simple white dress is a must-have in any wardrobe and would work for upcoming parties, nights out and Christmas events too.
