This story is from our partner, FabSugar! Twice a month we’ll share FabSugar’s best fashion tips and shopping guides. Today’s post teaches you how to wear winter white like a pro written by Hannah Weil of FabSugar:
We’re no longer living by the no-white-after-Labor-Day rules – save for being a guest at your best friend’s wedding, there really are no rules when it comes to wearing your white pieces. That said, there can be a little trepidation around wearing the color during Winter – but we’re out to change all of that. With these five looks we’re embracing the hue on our denim, skirts, and dresses to refresh our everyday style. From a creamy boho maxi to a pair of ultra-chic white skinnies, click through to see and shop all the ways we’re wearing white right now.
Contrast your basics..
A creamy mohair sweater has a quintessentially Winter feel. Contrast the cozy topper with slick leather pants and studded loafers, then add in a pair of pretty earrings for an everyday outfit with a little pizazz.
