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.
