The one fashion rule we can all agree on these days is that there are no rules. You should wear whatever you want, whenever you want to, and currently in the dead of winter all we want to wear is white. Shades of white, really, which means that cream and off-white and even some light sand and beige colors are working their way into our wardrobe.
Lucky for us, the fashion industry agrees, because winter whites are one of the biggest trends of the year. From bone to ecru, designers can’t get enough of this chic color palette, especially in luxe, minimalist silhouettes and materials. Take this COS turtleneck sweater, with the ribbed detail on the neck, sleeves, and hem. Or this J.Crew cashmere sweater in a fresh take on cable-knit. You can style this fine-knit cashmere crew-neck like a fancy, much cozier t-shirt.
If you’re looking for a piece that you can wear through the winter months now and still rock in the summer, then you need the perfect pair of white jeans. We love this straight-leg, always cool boyfriend jean from Raey. These utilitarian white pants from J.Crew are already in our weekend wardrobe, because they can take you from the farmer’s market to drinks with friends. Jenni Kayne has a perfect pair of wear-everywhere skinny jeans in a clean crisp white.
Moving on to our feet, have you gotten into white boots yet? Life is short, don’t be afraid to wear white shoes! They add a pop of freshness to any outfit and also ride the fine line of ‘pretty’ and ‘impractical’ that all great fashion hits. This pair from J.Crew is stylish, but not so expensive that you’ll regret the purchase when the boots inevitably get dirty. Ganni always creates interesting, unexpected shoes and these canvas trainers are no different. We’re obsessed with the extra-tall lug sole, summery canvas upper, and how comfortable they are.
