Darren Kennedy: A whiter shade of pale - classic, tailored and as fresh as ever
White suits: not just for sailors. The warm-weather update to the classic, tailored feminine suit looks as fresh as ever. Designers certainly think so, anyway. For spring summer, Ralph Lauren mixed it up by putting model Candice Swanepoel in a white tuxedo-turned-gown.
Adam Lippes went super oversized, pairing a slouchy white suit with a pop of pistachio in the form of a tube top underneath.

And finally, at Rachel Zoe, a tailored snow-white suit came just as I like it: simple and chic.

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Dr Pimple Popper, aka California-based dermatologist Sandra Lee, said she will never use one thing: free hotel room moisturising lotion.

Triumph & Disaster's Gameface Moisturiser contains carefully chosen ingredients to give fresh, clean results and masculine aromas. So, next time you pack for your trip away, ensure you bring your own. DETAILS: Gameface Moisturiser, €45, Triumph & Disaster from Arnotts.ie
