Start Wearing White…from Winter to Spring

Last week, I heard someone call in to a radio show from New York Fashion Week, and she suggested fighting the winter blahs with white. She also insisted white can be worn year-round. I completely agree.

Here are some pieces I found to inspire wearing white, paired with bright colors, of course!  I do hope that these great pieces, as well as the whites in the latest Anthropologie catalog, mean there’s more white on the way to major retailers.

White tops, dresses, skirts and pantsStarting with the top row, from left to right:

  • Free People Ruffle Trim Sweater Jacket: comfortable and perfect for jeans on casual Friday or with a skirt or trousers for a day in the office.  Keep it dressy and feminine with heels and don’t forget a necklace – in gold, red, yellow, pink, blue or green.
  • Michael Kors Sequin Cardigan (Plus): I’m not normally a fan of zippers on sweaters but the sequins on this cardigan help minimize the focus.  Perfect for jeans, skirts or trousers, this can go from day to night with a pair of heels.
  • Ted Baker London ‘Priscil’ Scalloped Dress: *love* the shape and detail of this dress.  Pair with a leather, navy, yellow or red jacket for work and a colored wrap for evening. This would be cute with a pair of metallic or colored flats or heels.
  • Adrianna Papell Cutaway Chiffon Dress: what a pretty take on the Grecian look!  This is definitely a party dress that I picture paired with a strappy sandal and a bright-colored clutch.
  • 3.1 Phillip Lim Embroidered Hairpin Lace Skirt: this is a lovely take on tone-on-tone patterns.  This would be great paired with any colored cardigan and a belt to contrast the sweater and skirt or it could be paired with a dainty jacket if you want to feel very special at work.  A flat or pump would work with this.
  • Michael Kors ‘Sausalito’ Bootcut Jeans (Plus): a simple white jean is a great base and can be worn by anyone, as long as it’s not too tight.  Pair with prints and bright colors for a dressier take on casual day, for a date (just think twice about ordering tomato-based items), or brunch with friends.
  • Leifsdottir ‘Daisy’ Organdy Blouse: this ultra feminine top is a great way to dress up denim or paired with a neutral skirt or pant.  I would not recommend it for every shape as it may add too much volume, but I would reconsider if paired with a structured jacket.
  • Lane Bryant Icon Collection Draped Woven Top: this asymmetrical take on a simple white blouse is elegant, clean and structured that can be worn with or without a top layer.  It can be belted with jeans, trousers or a skirt and easily works for meetings and/or dates.
