Like White on White

This season, I’m all over ivory pairings like white on rice.

Nothing says winter like the cool, cozy hues of white. Simultaneously evoking an image of luxury and the holiday season, cozy knits and layered pieces cloaked in ivory have never achieved more.

Similar to its monochromatic counterpart, white and black are the simplest colors to incorporate. By layering shades of white, an outfit can transform from a ordinary safe bet into a powerful statement.

While a white pea coat may have always been a staple in your closet, this winter, designers like Valentino, Isabel Marant and Maiyet are mixing textures and fabrics like never before, heightening the level of edginess not often found in the classic shade.

Cloaking your outfits in black during the winter months while covering every inch of skin with leggings and hose can become monotonous and can make you appear unnecessarily pale. Brighten up your dreary November and play up the flush in your cheeks with a complete color inversion.

Monochrome

One of the trends being thrown around like a hot potato this spring/summer is monochrome. While the definition of monochrome is pretty black and white [pun totally intended], actually wearing pieces on opposing sides of the grey scale can be super modern without having to actually try that hard.

Keep your outfit simple with a majority of either black or white and class it up with a pair of YSL ankle strap pumps. I love dressing up silky shorts for going out with a pair of heels and this pair by Prabal Gurung is so beautiful it’s borderline insulting.
