One of the oldest “rules” in fashion is that white is forbidden after Labor Day. We’re not entirely sure where this concept came from, but it’s clearly nonsense as most street style fans are all into winter white. While these fashion stars pretty much debunked the myth, that doesn’t mean it is easy to look white on white.
Going head to toe white can often wash you out and no one wants that. The key is to go for different shades of white – ivory, ecru, cream, eggshell – to keep things interesting. Or, you can add some strategic pops of color to add an extra dimension to your look. And don’t be afraid to rely on other well-known neutrals like gray, black and brown or prefer statement coats in plaid or camouflage. Texture is also important as it can add a little kick to an otherwise strong ensemble.
