With Labor Day right around the corner, I’ve been thinking about how to wear the color white for the next nine months.
I’m not a fan of white, usually; in fact, the only white garment I own is a fitted Lacoste down vest. I find white t-shirts to be too outfitty; ditto white blouses. And although I like the idea of a white dress during the height of summer, I’d prefer it on someone else: on me it would be a cliché.
So I intend to wear white in untraditional ways this fall and winter (though I fully realize that I’m not the first to do so). Here are some items on my wish list:
Winter white heels with opaque gray or black stockings. I love the idea of a non-stark white with a dark stocking.
Winter white beret. I wear only berets in winter, and this will be a soft alternative to my usual power navy.
Winter white lace skirt. Never to be worn with above shoes, but with tough-girl high heel shoes and a cashmere sweater.
Which white is right for you? (By the way, I think silver is the new white.)
