Don’t get me wrong. I love my black. I think there is nothing more lovely than wearing black. I have more ideas on this in my next blog. But for now, I want to to talk about white. I love white, winter white and creme in winter. In fact, I love to mix it all. We are seeing this trend for Spring 2013 with tonal layers. I have been encouraging my clients to play with tonal ideas for several seasons now. The key to tonal dressing is texture play. Have fun. Don’t worry about matching the tone. Coordinate them. Great examples below shot by The Sartorialist.
In colder weather, i like to keep the fabrics “weather’ appropriate. It’s best to stay away from traditional summer fabrics such as linen, light weight cottons, hemp, etc. Sweater knits mixed with heavier cottons and denim is great. You can also mix in silks and silk – like blends.
The other way I love wearing white, winter white and creme is to accent with another neutral. Grey, Camel & Black are wonderful and very chic.
Standby by for a photo shoot. I am dying to get this inspiration of mine on camera.
Men. You can and should do this too. It is a fresh and lovely approach to the season. RL
