As a self-identified messy person, the struggle with the color white is never ending. That perfect loose Obey tee? Coffee spill. That lacy MINKPINK tunic? Soy sauce. So it’s no wonder that I have a deep admiration for those who are able to rock white (before and after Labor Day – rules are made to be broken people!) past their first meal. After all, white can make so much more of a statement than black, especially during the winter months when we’re all shrouding ourselves in layers of black in the hopes of absorbing as much heat as possible. Winter white ensembles are truly my ideal – they seem soft, cozy, and feminine. Lucky for us (although maybe not me with my messy habits), brands like Free People and BB Dakota have made it super easy to transition this classic shade into the colder months. If you won’t do it for you, do it for me.
