My name is Alyson and Iâ€™m addicted to wearing white year-round. I just canâ€™t help myself. I know thereâ€™s that old rule about not wearing it after Labor Day but forget it, rules are made to be broken. As long as itâ€™s styled the right way, itâ€™s totally a yes! So when Target suggested I share a few looks showing how each of us can win in winter white, I was all for it — surprised I havenâ€™t done this already. For this post, take out your riding boots — a winter staple — because Iâ€™m sharing threeÂ toppers for yourÂ white denim and boots.
First, a few tips: If youâ€™re going for a crisp white, just be mindful of how itâ€™s paired; style your white withÂ jewel tones, earthy hues and it always works with a striking, classic contrasting black. You can also consider colors in the white family, so creams, beiges and anything similar. Have fun pairing your whites with leathers, embellishments, cable knits and furs. I could honestly put together dozens of looks. Thinking about it, a lot of it comes down to footwear; most of the looks below could easily be ‘summer-izedâ€™ with flip flops, bright heels or espadrilles. Adding boots, booties and darker footwear instantly brings it into this season.
The threeÂ looks:
1. All white. Iâ€™ve been wanting to do this for ages, and this new creamy colored cable-knit sweater created the perfect platform to do so. Footwear wise, if I wasnâ€™t wearing riding boots, Iâ€™d fully be in a pair of burgundy colored pumps or a great snakeskin print loafer.
2. Plaid blazer & riding boots.Â This is me going preppy! If youâ€™re not feeling as adventurousÂ with the plaid, pull out a navy, camel or black solid blazer to get the same effect. Swap out the camisole and play with jewelry to switch up the vibe.
3. Black & white (and brown!). Anyone who said black and brown donâ€™t mix had it wrong… promise! I absolutely love this combo, and this might be the coziest outfit ever. If youâ€™re hesitant about trying white for winter, pairing it with black is an instant classic. In lieu of boots, you can also pair it with black booties, flats or even a laced-up heel for a night out, and then pair it with a fab clutch (Iâ€™d love a pop of color!).
