What to Wear: Winter White

On a cold, cold day at the end of a cold, cold snap you start to run out of options. Another day in wool pants and a black sweater? Boooring. Switching to winter white always makes me feel a little better about having to be bundled up:
  • Sweater - Dark camel is a perfect match for white in the winter.
  • White Pants - A must have. Look for a pair that is machine washable and either lined or made of thick enough fabric that it doesn't matter. In other words, a pair from Express or Club Monaco instead of this option.
  • Trench - Invest in one of these classic trenches from Banana Republic. I bought one in neutral from them a few years ago. It has a great "heft."
  • Shoes - I'm wearing my vintage boots today for extra warmth.
  • Purse - Cute and cheap from Urban Outfitters.
  • Wool scarf - So very cold outside.
  • Silk scarf - For a little color.
  • Bracelets - In red and white, perfect for this outfit and for spring.
  • Earrings - A fun alternative to pearls.
Now just throw on some long underwear underneath it all, a pair of lined gloves and an umbrella and you are set!

Hi,
I have just passed on your blog,
I wrote you this message, because I have myself a blog. The objective is that people send me their picture(s) with the clothes they intend to wear today or the next few days. And this to find out how is the fashion for people like you and me and by people from all over the world. I live in Singapore and here, fashion has a big importance, there’s a mix of cultures. It gives a colorful city… Anyway!
I think it’s great to share, to see how people match their clothes and accessories together. Anyway maybe I’m dreaming a little bit but who doesn’t intend anything, doesn’t get anything.

If you know anyone interested, it’d be great to talk about it, if yourself you find the idea interesting, of course!

Thank you in advance

Have a nice day

Love this outfit. I love the classic trench. And, you tied a colorful scarf around your purse handle. Alexandra Stoddard always does that for extra color. Lovely.

Don't be chicken about wearing white! It's actually really forgiving of small stains. Machine washable is the key.
