There is nothing more chic that an all-ivory outfit. Often associated with innocence, perfection, honesty and cleanliness, ivory is vital yet neutral. There’s something so refreshing and uplifting about wearing white in winter. Dare to wear white and brights during winter … it is light and uplifting.
White reflects light, surrounding you in a particular glow which says you are strong, practical and virtuous. It is light and uplifting and guaranteed to lift the spirits and lighten our moods … just what we need in the depths of winter’s solemn embrace. As I wok a lot with fashion, colors, shapes and texture, I can sincerely say that is one of the colors I like most; the two pieces knitwear set works beautifully with the elegant poncho, that replaces the classic camel coat. I always say and write that we are still not enough aware of the magical effect that a nice poncho gives to the whole look. It is simply amazing!
White brings a breath of freshness to an outfit and will work with any colour. Winter white tones of cream, ivory, snow, taupe and soft grey (and their many other names and descriptors) complement all colours and will instantly create a light new mood. White is the perfect blank canvas, providing you with a backdrop to wear other colours or statement pieces. Whites with a pearlescent sheen, sequins or glitter add instant glam and up the luxe factor, milky whites are sumptuous and nothing beats the freshness of a crisp white shirt. And a chunky-knit sweaters will hug you on those cold winter days. And if you need to make an entrance or stand out in a crowd, particularly in a sea of dark sombre tones, white will deliver in spades every time.
Plus: one colour head-to-toe has a elongating effect, so if you are vertically challenged, white is perfect to give the illusion of height. Play with varying shades of white – warm whites, cream, stone, ivory, stark white – these options will help add depth and contrast when worn together. And taking things one step further, play with texture and materials, between silk and cashmere or cotton and wool. When you add dimension via texture, it will immediately elevate your white winter look and have you feeling and looking your best, guaranteed.
