An unofficial ‘rule’ of fashion is not to wear white after Labor Day. However, this ‘rule’ has been broken constantly with the continued appearance of white on the runway throughout the fashion season. It really comes to whether you are a fan of wearing white or not. The winter season is fast approaching and with it comes the quest to find the perfect way to style winter whites. In order to give you a better idea on how to wear fashionable winter whites I spoke with a few fellow fashion bloggers and professionals to get their take on just how to wear this color and what you might want to avoid.
Kristie Glenn, Blue Labels Boutique owner and blogger of What’s The Haps had this to say, “Pairing white with camel is a great way to wear white in the winter! Here is a trendy outfit idea: white trousers, a thin white sweater with a camel colored cape (which are a big trend right now) and leopard print shoes. It’s usually best to avoid wearing black shoes because they can look too heavy.” For more from Kristie you can find her boutique Blue Labels Boutique here and her blog, What’s the Haps?.
Here’s another idea tip courtesy of Marian Rothschild, a Certified Personal Image Consultant, wardrobe stylist, blogger, award-winning and best-selling author. You can be a trendsetter by wearing white when all others around you are wearing dull gray and boring black. “Winter white” is a very soft shade of ivory with a tiny tint of either peach, tan or yellow. Do not go with a grayish white; it will look dreadfully dull against any skin tone. You can find Marian at http://www.marianrothschild.com/.
Our third outfit idea and input comes courtesy of Aurora Berill who is the founder & administrator of Elegance of Luxury. It reaches an international audience mainly from Italy, the US, UK and Germany. The following is what she had to say:
“Our personal style says a lot about ourselves. Don’t be afraid to experiment, add a bit of white and your look will transform into an elegant and sophisticated look. I’ve created 3 looks which can inspire you and help you get dressed for work, elegant dinners and other occasions & etc. If you prefer to add more black and less white into your winter look, then take a look at one of my outfits. I wear my black and white coat in combination with a red dress. Take care of the details!”
You can find Aurora over on http://www.eleganceofluxury.com/. You can also connect with her on several social media platforms found on the blog as well.
Here’s my final take. The outfit choices are endless. For example, you might prefer an all white look (i.e. detailed jacket, blouse, and pants paired together). If traditional white isn’t what you are going for then perhaps a different shade like ecru or ivory might work for you. You can also pair white with another neutral color or metallic like silver to give you more of a winter feel. This look will work if you plan on attending parties this holiday season. These are just some of the tips on the stylish ways to wear your winter white this upcoming season. Hopefully, I have given you an insight on how to style your winter white, and also how to make it a must have part of your winter wardrobe.
