Holiday Style Series: Winter White


I think it goes without saying that the rules of fashion have changed over the years.  Several of the biggest trends of 2012 have broken the laws and changed the way that women get dressed every morning. Don't mix brown and black. Don't wear green with yellow. Denim doesn't go with denim. And, for the sake of this post, "don't wear white after Labor Day."

Well, my friends, I'm here to tell ya that this season I'm totally rocking the winter white. Sue me.

White is such a crisp, clean and classic look and, in my unimportant opinion, should not be constrained into our wardrobe for six months of the year. There are ways to make the neutral shade appropriate and fitting for your holiday ensemble! Hooray!
A neutral look like the one I'm wearing here is a great way to don the trend and still stay warm, cozy and winter-esque. 

Pair your white pieces with warmer hues like jewel tones, browns and blacks to create a chic look. Eggshell or ivory tones in your pants or in a skirt look great with a tailored top or chunky sweater! Classic white cable knit sweaters look cozy with leggings or flared denim and a bright scarf around your neck! On your feet, leather riding boots, suede pumps or chunky booties are all great accessories to compliment the white garments.

Be creative, ladies! There's SO many ways to confidently wear white this season without feeling like you're headed to the beach! Or maybe that's what you want to feel like....I don't blame you.

Here's to dressing for a Christmas party and wishing we were in Jamaica instead.
