Style theory: From bright to chalky to creams..a white top is the perfect piece to have in your wardrobe. It looks crisp, fresh and positively summer-like, this year choose from delicate lace, broderie anglais or boho styles, all beautifully flattering and oh so Summer 2015....
White tops look great with distressed jeans, creating a perfect contrast and edge to clean lines and the colour of the white top. Here are a selection of white tops styled perfectly by the streetstylers:

Now for the best on the high street and how they look on. I have concentrated on white tops with some kind of arm coverage as I am now getting to that age where I like the top of my arms to have some coverage eek!...
|Warehouse White Gypsy Top £24|
This is a great version of a gypsy top, I like it better pulled up on the shoulders it creates a flattering square neckline, the top can be tucked in or left out over jeans. I unfortunately had my dungarees on these photos (completely the wrong thing to wear when trying on tops so just ignore them!)
There is 25% off Warehouse this week with Grazia so if you fancy this top get it with the code WHGRAZIA25 (I think?)
|Warehouse Black Stripe lace Top £32|
Part lace top, part breton what's not to love?!
|Topshop Sheer Pom Pom Embroidered top £38|
I can only find this in the black online but I saw lots of cream instore. I love the pom pom details on this top, it would look fab over a bikini with distressed denim shorts.
|Zara Combined top £25.99|
This has gorgeous lace detail at the top with good length sleeves if you are conscious of your upper arms.
This is one of my favourite tops I tried on and I will be buying this one. It is so flattering and delicate, I love the cut of the sleeve and the embroidery detail.
|Zara Guipere Lace Off-Shoulder Top Blouse £29.99|
Show a little shoulder without looking too over the top.
|Zara Embroidered jacket £39.99|
So not necessarily all white, but I do love this kimono, it would be perfect over a white vest and boyfriend jeans with tan strappy sandals.
Looks like this top may have sold out online, but it is definitely available in store and this one I have my eye on buying too. I love a victoriana neckline and I can just about get away with the no sleeves as the shoulder detail detracts from your arms. This would be a really hardworking top in your wardrobe, wear with jeans, shorts, culottes or tucked into a suede skirt for a fabulous office look.
Fingers crossed over the next few weeks it will warm up in the uk and we will be able to wear these gorgeous white tops, in the meantime I will be wearing mine under a navy blazer to make sure I get wear out of it this season.
Do you have a favourite white top, have you enticed by the white look this year? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions, until next time Frances xx
