if it’s january, then it’s time to wear neutrals, including white denim. neutrals are a go-to any time of year, but many readers still ask if it’s appropriate to wear white denim after labor day. i’m happy to report that it’s a fashion ‘do’ in 2021 to wear white denim for winter. personally, i love how white brightens a dreary winter day. but the best part is that white goes with everything. black, grey, and camel are my favorite neutrals to pair with white. there’s something so chic and simple about any of those color combinations.
it’s easy to get into a style rut when the weather outside is frightful. yes, i trudged through many a snowbank all through my childhood, college, and beyond. it’s a struggle just to get out of bed on a frigid winter morning, and it’s oh so easy to slip into a winter uniform that consists of a black sweater, black jeans, black boots, and a parka. been there. done that. but let’s step outside the winter style box for a moment and put on our thinking caps. it’s definitely possible to look stylish even when the winter winds blow. let’s take a look.
white denim for winter is a perfect way to start your day. yes, i’m wearing leopard pumps (old, similar here, lower heel here) since Georgia’s weather has been mild. lucky for me, it’s a rare occasion to spot a single snowflake. one of the many reasons i love this state. if you live in a colder climate, exchange the pumps for booties, and you are good to go. either way, leopard accessories are an easy way to give your look a sophisticated touch. leopard shoes, belts, and handbags are wardrobe staples i love to pull out any chance i get. this cashmere turtleneck from Nordstrom has been on style repeat all winter long, along with this knit duster from Banana Republic. both items look a-ma-zing with white straight-leg jeans from Talbots. i’m wearing a size medium in both the turtleneck and duster a size 8 in the jeans. all fit true to size (tts), although i could easily have sized down to a small for both the turtleneck and duster. but i went for a more slouchy look, so i stayed with a medium. typically i size up one size with white denim for a fit that skims my curves rather than hugs. so a size 8 was perfect.
it’s Wednesday, ladies, time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
