The fashion world can be a little bit silly with all of its imperatives, but there’s one in particular it’s time to dispel: the rule about no white after Labor Day. We love winter white, especially in nubby wool or super-soft cashmere. While we wouldn’t suggest a head-to-toe look, and would advise steering clear of anything that would be appropriate on a beach, a bit of white can freshen up any ensemble. A couple of our favorite items:
Vanessa Bruno White Fur Vest: The perfect layering piece for a Saturday afternoon. We love this taken in a slightly ’70s direction, with a fitted turtleneck layered underneath. Add a great pair wide leg jeans, and a chunky gold cuff for a perfect finish. Available at LaGarconne.com.
Chloe Python Bay Bag: While white leather can often be a bit tricky, Chloe’s Bay Bag in Python is perfectly executed. We love the off-white color, the shiny gold hardware, and the heavy stitching. It would make the perfect day bag, and is big enough to throw in all of your essentials! Available at Net-a-Porter.com.
RM by Roland Mouret Pigalle Wool Dress: A chic dress that translates well from day to night. Keep it simple, but add a great pair of black pumps—we see something with a buckle detail and a slightly pointed toe—and a belted coat. Available at Net-a-Porter.
