Who ever said that wasn’t a thing?! I don’t know but after Kristina Bazan’s appearance for Ellie Saab wearing all white, it looks like it’s back on the winter wardrobe scene. I hope you’re all well; we’ve had (minimal amounts) of snow recently and initially I’d planned on shooting this in a field full of snow, but the weather disappointed and it had all melted by the time I was ready..
Despite everything being grey/black right now I think it’s so important to liven up your outfits when it’s this dull – if the sun isn’t bringing any light to the day then you need to! I know that bright corals and pinks probably aren’t on the agenda, and they’re probably not even in the shops, but the thing about white is that’s it perennial/eternal; it’s like the evergreen of fashion.
For this outfit I was planning on making it more wearable than others that have been seen, with the white jeans making it more every day than occasion. The grey jumper (bearing it mind it’s super light) gives another tone to the outfit without it being too over the top. My off-white blazer gives yet another tone, but I think it makes the outfit have more depth to it, this is such a good draped blazer, it hangs so perfectly! The white and black scarf just blends it all together really; if I was wearing this out on an evening I think I’d lose the scarf and just keep it simple and refined, but for day use it casual-ises it up a bit. Then add loafers and it’s complete!
With my makeup I’ve gone heavy on the eye-shadow (as always) but with browns and warm colours, softening the look up a bit, then I have a thin line of winged eyeliner and then thick mascara. I’ve also dabbed on a normally really vibrant pink lipstick just to add a warm stain to my lips, again softening the outfit.
Also, check out my new nail varnish guys!! I’ve wanted a matte grey varnish since Dior had them on some of their ads and I’ve been half-heartedly looking for ages, but by chance I forgot to paint my nails to something yesterday, needed to buy some and came across this! Only downside is that it chipped within hours!! So I’m either going to have to get a matte top coat of just use mine and enjoy the colour, but not the matte..
Hope you like the outfit, and let me know your thoughts on whites in winter!
