I can’t say enough great things about the color white.
It has been so cold lately that I have been forced to break out my heavier coats. This coat from Bebe is one of my dressier white coats with ruffle details and delicate lace sewn on the bottom edge of the border. I paired it with tan skinny leggings by Shinestar and black leather boots by Gucci (which took years to find the perfect flat boot). My quilted bordeaux double-handel satchel is from Anne Klein. I accessorized with rhinestone/ pearl gradiated earrings from Ralph Lauren and oversized bamboo rimmed glasses from Gucci.
White...it gives a sense of freshness to everything. White also looks great in the summer and we wear a version of this in the Winter months called “Winter white”. So, in that sense essentially, you can wear it all year long. However, the one drawback of this color and is the one major reason why people don’t wear it often enough is that it gets dirty quickly and easily. For this reason, you must be a brave soul to wear any piece of white clothing out at a special event; but especially if you are going to be sitting down for a yummy plate of spaghetti and meatballs with marinara sauce. Yikes…may the force be with you! White jeans, coats, dresses and shoes are items I am always on the lookout for, because the life span of these items is short and I am usually trying to replace them.
I feel that when you walk into a room wearing all white, it has the same effect as walking into a room with a red dress on…all heads turn, stare and wonder who is that? Has this ever happened to you? If you want attention, wear white, or perhaps red if you are planning to go out for pasta haha.
Hope you had a nice weekend!
