Toss Old Fashioned Rules …
As you know I am not a big fan of fashion rules like “no white after Labor day” or “no white before Memorial day” or the rule winter white is for winter and white like snow white is for summer. What about wearing them together I thought? Summer color plus winter color equals spring color sort of thing. Well, I tried it out and thought that it looks really nice despite that the idea sounds odd, very odd. It definitively is outside the box, and does not look weird at all.Wear black in summer, white in winter. So chic. Click To Tweet
… Try Something New
What I did: I paired my mock turtleneck winter white cashmere cardigan with my white blazer and a pair of black leather shorts. To stay in the middle between summer and spring I wore sheer black tights and booties. As it is still below freezing in the mornings I took my winter coat.
Stylist tip: Think of these tow different shades of white like styling a monochromatic look.
White Pants with Winterwhite Sweater
At the end of winter, one has to repeat items, but not recycle outfits. This early spring outfit features my winter white cashmere sweater, white leather pants, a floral silk scarf, white pumps and denim shirt.

The below freezing temperatures in the morning and evening still demand for the A-line faux fur coat. This time I picked a black scarf for a change, but kept the red bag from yesterday. Since it is close to impossible to walk with the pumps on snow and ice, and they were too expensive to wear them in the snow mud that exists around lunch time, I wore my black booties for the commute, and the pumps at work. The beret again is just for style.
