Setting the Mood: Fifty Shades of White

winter inspiration board It is upon us. The bone chilling, dark at 3pm, hibernation inducing months of winter. And while the delicately falling snowflakes sure do make for a beautiful backdrop (until the garbage trucks and foot traffic destroy the pristine piles of snow turning them into straight slush), it can be easy to want to just wrap yourself up in the all black uniform of winter. However, in the past couple of years and this one most noticeably, the once faux pas after Labor Day white accessories have become the “it” girl’s go to for breaking up a mostly dark ensemble. Do winter white from head to toe, or just accent your head and toes with white accessories. But remember, we’re channeling a soft snowflake, not the abominable snowman.

Setting the Mood: Winter White

By |December 13th, 2011|Setting the Mood|

Wearing white during the winter isn’t just for seal pups and polar bears.  Celebrities have been slipping into the virginal shade for seasons.  It’s a color fresh as the newly fallen snow.  Incorporating white into your wardrobe may seem scary, but other than the dry cleaning bills, it’s anything but.  Why blend in with standard black when you can steal the show (or actually camouflage yourself) with the color quite literally of the season?  Channel your inner snowflake and float my little friends, float.
