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.

… 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.

Spring is in the air
