BREAKING THE LAW | WINTER WHITES

Written by the_chelf@yahoo.gr

WHITE WAS NEVER WARMER

HOLD ON TO YOUR WHITE ESSENTIALS ALL YEAR LONG.  SOME RULES WHERE MADE TO BE BROKEN.

PAY ATTENTION TO A FEW DETAILS AND STAY SEASONALLY APPROPRIATE IN YOUR WHITE ENSEMBLES

WHITE IS UNFORGIVING: AN OVERSIZED FRAMEWORK IS THE WAY TO GO IF YOU WANT TO LOOK EXPENSIVE. DON’T BE AFRAID OF GETTING SWAMPED INTO TOO MUCH VOLUME. IT WORKS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.

AVOID ANYTHING WITH AN EXTRAVAGANT PERCENTAGE OF POLYESTER AND LYCRA.  ORGANIC COTTON, SOY CASHMERE AND TENCEL WILL KEEP YOUR WARDROBE LOOKING LUXE AND EXPENSIVE AND YOUR CONSCIENCE GREEN.  IF YOU WANT TO TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER LOOK FOR CHLORINE -FREE FABRICS AND BIO DEGRADABLE MATERIALS TO FURTHER REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF CHEMICALS INTO THE ECOSYSTEM.

NUDES, BLUSH PINKS  AND CAMEL TONES ARE PERFECT FOR WARMING UP A WHITE OUTFIT, WHILE SHADES OF GREY WILL GIVE A FRESH, SOPHISTICATED EDGE TO YOUR LOOK.

 

 

DON’T BE AFRAID TO BREAK THE MONOTONY. WEAR A PAIR OF BLACK -PREFERABLY VEGAN- BOOTS TO AVOID BEING  MATCHY-MATCHY.

INJECT A SHOT OF  GLAM TO A NEUTRAL-HEAVY OUTFIT TO KEEP THINGS INTERESTING. GOLD LOOKS GREAT ON ANYONE, SILVER  IS ALWAYS COOL AND ROSE GOLD NEVER GETS BORING.

    Summer or winter or anytime of the year I cant wear white! Dresses or shirt but not white pants! Especially not now with a toddler in tow! I must say though that I WANT your hair color!❤️

    I love wearing white in winter, especially for photos! It compliments darker colors and heavier fabrics well.

      Very true!

    • the_chelf@yahoo.gr says:

      Thank you so much!

  5. I love your outfit and that particular style. I am afraid that white being the stain magnet it is, it would not last on my for minutes!

    • the_chelf@yahoo.gr says:

      I feel ya! Go for cotton fabrics that are easy to wash! 😉

  6. Aine says:

    Gosh! I love that jumper so much – not usually one for white bottoms, but recently thinking about taking the plunge

    • the_chelf@yahoo.gr says:

      I bet you will not regret it!

  7. Ilda says:

    Great look! Love the white

    • the_chelf@yahoo.gr says:

      Thank you! It loves you too!

  8. Personally, wearing white is dangerous! However, your ideas paired with a much loved grey sweater are wonderful! Your outfit ideas are simple and elegant. I especially liked your post on the little black dress. As a person who suffers from not knowing what to do next, I really liked your advice on What to do with underdeveloped ideas.

    I personally love white clothing! Drives me nuts that so many people won’t wear it year round! So happy “winter white” is now a thing lol

    • the_chelf@yahoo.gr says:

      My thoughts exactly Courtney! Let’s make it happen!

      They go with everything, don’t they?

  10. I’m a sucker for gray sweaters! Yours looks so comfy and casual, perfect for any season (except summer, maybe) 🙂 White to me is totally acceptable anytime of year!

      I love a good chunky grey knit any time of the year too Amy!

    Eventhough i sucks on wearing white coz am clumsy, still I love wearing it. Makes me look pristine even in just few minutes!

    • the_chelf@yahoo.gr says:

      That is so true! White always looks expensive!

  12. I never understood that white rule anyways. It was meant to be break!. White looks great any time of year!

  13. Kristin says:

    Love this silhouette! Perfect for chilly winter days. Plus it looks great with your coloring!

  14. Great post, and I love your hair.

    • the_chelf@yahoo.gr says:

      Thank you!

  15. I think white is so tough to wear… You really need to know how to pull it off, and for me it’s not easy hahah…
    you styled it great though! love the cozy look 🙂

  16. Sina says:

    When wearing white shorts I’m feeling like a nurse or a doctor. I really admire how great you look on these pictures. Very well done 🙂 The only white places I possess are blouses to go with my business outfits…. have a wonderful weekend!

      Of course it was supposed to be “white pieces” instead of “places”
