Your Week in Fashion
Welcome! This week I'm showing you Winter White! Winter white used to be a creamy white that was just off-white from stark white. Now, winter white can be anything from stark white to beige. Rules no longer seem to apply to this, for which I am sad. It seems to be more light neutral rather than winter white these days. But, what can one do? Mix and blend your whites and textures to really make it look well. Otherwise you'll just look like you grabbed the wrong blouse to go with those slacks.
A long slimming dress in a rib knit with suede ankle boots. Wallet and tote in similar tones and sunnies, of course! Earrings and scarf that bring in more of the palest beige and some gold. Then wrap it all up in creamy white and faux fur. Tone on tone on tone on texture!
A lovely handkerchief hem in stark white with a tailored blouse in stark white. Stark white leather mules and a creamy white tote. Knit gloves with silver accents and sunnies with black patterning. Lovely gold drop earrings and a faux fur collared moto style white leather jacket. A sophisticated white look with a retro feel to it.
A pencil skirt and a scoop neck long sleeved tee. Next is a long, fuzzy cardigan in a sparkling white. Ankle boots in white and palest gray and a bag in a pale grayed white. Sparkling crystal drop earrings and a white and pale gray scarf accent around the neckline. Wrap up the striped white and gray coat and pop on the knit hat with its fur pom pom.
Well tailored white leggings and a white cropped sleeveless turtleneck give the appearance of a jumpsuit under this vintage Chanel dress coat. Wear it open or closed. Add the striped scarf to help coordinate the gray and beige neutrals in the outfit. Pale gray and polka dot pumps and a champagne toned bag. Beige gloves with fur cuffs go well with the creamy ivory coat. And the white and gold feather earrings top it all off!
White skinnies and a white chiffon blouse topped by a long creamy white faux fur vest. The coat is over-long and all that creamy white wool wraps with just one button. The hat is creamy white knit with a faux fur pom pom on top. All the accents are a lovely beige tone. The tied pumps and two tone bag. The tone-on-tone scarf and the rose gold earrings as well. And don't forget the oversized gorilla key chain!
White slim cut trousers with a loose fitting white sweater top in a chunky horizontal ribbed knit. I added a white scarf with a black design and a touch of pink in it. So I chose pinky blush pumps and a pinky beige bag. The earrings are rose gold and pink and brown stones. Wrap it all up in a wonderful faux fur coat.
No one said that winter white had to be ALL white! ZAP it with lipstick RED and it really pops! White blouse, slacks and cardigan in lovely flowing fabrics. So classy. Add drop earrings with small red stones. Pumps in blush and white with RED heels and grab a RED patent handbag! Cover up with a RED wrap cape coat and RED knit hat with a dyed fur pom pom. Wow! It sounds like a really special look!
Hope you enjoy playing with the Winter White ideas here. Work with what's in your closet and see just how white your winter can be! See you all on Thursday for The Digital Gallery.
