Littlewoods Ireland have shared their latest style finds with us for the Debs season ahead…this season’s dress sales are spiking as Irish girls are shopping the neutralist and purest of colourswhite.

image002-3The concept of single-tone, occasion-wear has been adopted by many a celeb across the globe; everyone from Cara Delevingne and Kim Kardashian to Kate Middleton and Rihanna have been spotted putting their own spin on this all white ensemble

It could be this celebrity trend, which is inspiring these shoppers to choose white-shades for the debs, with sales in Littlewoods Ireland of white and neutral tones up by 68% instead of the usual rainbow of colours.

Karen Nason, spokesperson for Littlewoods Ireland says: “We are seeing a new trend coming through this season as girls embrace the traditional white and nude colours of the debutante’s balls of past as well as keeping a close eye on the red carpet”.

The tradition of wearing a white dress dates back to the debutante cotillion coming of age celebrations where young girls wore white gowns and accessorised with white gloves and pearls.

Nason continued; “This trend is not going anywhere and sales are peaking as a result of high-profile style icons embracing the look at the Oscars earlier this year and show stoppers such as Rihanna and Kate Middleton dazzling on the red carpet. It is no surprise this has had an effect on occasion wear sales and we are delighted to offer our customers plenty of choice for this year’s debs balls.”

Littlewoods Irelands buying team has shared some top styling information to the Styleuphoria HQ and offer their top tips to help pull off the neutral look:

  • For an elegant and effortless approach to the evening, choose a floor-length strapless or spaghetti straps dress to showcase a bronzed glow.
  •  For paler skin-tones, choose chalk-coloured white to help pull of this pale look.
  •  For curvier girls who may fear white to be unflattering, take inspiration from Kim Kardashian who highlights her curves with the help of crop tops and waist clinching skirts.
  •  Try a 1950’s style halter-neck and flare style dress which is figure flattering and works with heels, flats or sandals.
  •  If wearing a dress with a slit, go for a high neckline to achieve a subtle allure.
  •  Opt for bold accessories to offset a plain white dress with key pieces of statement jewellery.
  •  Balance out your outfit with white point-toe shoes for a clean finish.
