How to wear: Winter White

There are so many ways to pull off a Winter White look.  Chances are, you have white jeans or pants in your closet.  Throw them on with a cream cable sweater and you are out the door.  This look is timeless but also on trend for Winter and Spring.  Here are some recent runway looks:

Carolina Herrera, Spring '12: a lovely,white, flowing gown paired with a masculine dark belt with understated hair and make-up. 

Ahhh, Giselle: white blazer, white pants.

This look is crazy editorial!  However, the message is cable knits, fur and a monochromatic palette.

The incomparable Jackie O. 

Translated to everday: 

White on white or cream is so effortlessly chic.  

This combination of a crisp white button-down with a cream skirt and camel heels is lovely.

A cable knit crewneck sweater with a tulle skirt is unexpectedly sophisticated.

Winter White suits...

Here, I put together a more casual way to wear winter white:

The safe part about this classic look is that it is impossible to clash! 

Classic + Classic= Classic


  1. "crazy editorial" ... perhaps this is why I am so fashion clueless! What does that mean???

  2. Within the fashion world, if a look is "editorial" it generally means it is a look an editor would chose for a magazine shoot or a designer for the runway. It has to be translated or "edited" down for everyday wear or even pieces stores would buy for their own collections. It is a look that is generally over the top to make a point.
    Livi- you are the best!!
