Right about now everything winter starts to feel a little bleak. Do you know what I mean?
Feeling drab is usually a January/February sensation in the northern hemisphere.
I open my wardrobe doors every morning, drag out yet another black sweater and think to myself, I need to re-work this.
I need something lighter, I need a neutral to enhance my overall look and demeanour.
I notice I am wearing red lipstick more often. Yes I love red lips but I think the red is more of a reaction to the time of year than an actual style statement.
Don’t misunderstand I adore black.
Black pants, black skirts, black coats, black sweaters, black dresses; black is my staple and go to with every piece.
It is my wardrobe constant.
You might wonder what these images have to do with a winter white addition to the wardrobe. I don’t know exactly why but when I saw these shots they made me feel like getting into winter whites. Ideas and inspirations come from all sources, I don’t question them, I try and run with them. Why interiors and landscapes shape my fashion choices, I will never understand. It has always been that way.
I have come around to the white jeans in winter with the dark accessories and vice versa. Where I once would wear all white or all black, now I am searching for the contrast.
