During winter you can usually find me bundled up under layers of dark clothing, trying to hibernate from the cold. I don’t know if I have mentioned it before, but I HATE winter. My body was definitely designed for warmer climes.
Rather than let it get me down I’m taking a different approach this year and introducing some colour into my winter wardrobe to lift my mood. Although some people may argue that white isn’t an actual colour, white is big news this winter.
Although wearing white during winter comes with its fair share of challenges, there are also huge benefits to the white trend. Wearing white is an instant mood lifter; leaving you feeling refreshed and feeling ready to take on the day ahead.
White is an all-time classic colour that is never going to go out of style and not going anywhere anytime soon. So, why not start building your wardrobe up with classic pieces so that you can wear white all year round.
Trends from this years aw16 runway showcased varying tones, from a crisp snow white to luxe cream so now is the perfect time to stock up on those essential items. While you might think that white is unflattering, It’s all about how you wear it. Combining a mix of different shades of white, ecru and even beige through multiple layers and textures has been seen time and time again to create a sleek classic look.
With that in mind I thought I would share with you some of my recent favourites I have picked up.
The first item was actually featured on my Ultimate Christmas Wishlist blog post from earlier on in December. My brother must have read it as he bought me this A.P.C Oh L’Amour Tee which I featured. Constructed from 100% cotton jersey with a high quality print to the chest, this t-shirt is the ultimate white shirt! I love it!
Next up is another pair of Adidas Stan Smiths . Stan Smiths have always been a favourite of mine and I’ve had a few pairs over the last couple of years, but never a crisp all white pair. I’m trying to save them for dry days at the moment but we will see how that works out. If it has anything to do with lola (my pug) they won’t be white for very long!
The final item is some Classic Calvin Klein Boxers because who doesn’t like fresh underwear and these Calvin Klein’s never go out of style.
