This summer was definitely all about the white hots. Some tried to coin the term LWD and although that abbreviation is stupid, the LWD was totally in. So listen up, I propose that we don’t say goodbye to our dearest white yet. The mega hottie who I now call my favorite hair stylist and who lives in an all black wardrobe and is probably the very epitome of cool referred to white as a color she just might wear. If she’s steppin’ outta her zone for that pantone swatch, then I think it’s safe to say that white has official made it as a color you can wear for more than just your wedding.
An all white ensemble was really nothing I’d ever considered before, purely because of my totally rational fear of sitting on something brown and looking like I pooped my pants in public. I know I’m not alone. However, the game has changed and I can’t get white out of my mind. As I write this post, I am reminded of a genius quote from my incredible Spanish roommate, who I met on my study abroad in France. He is one hell of a good dude and one of my favorite people I’ve ever met (really, I hit the jackpot in roomies, 4 of them are people I will consider life long best friends). This is a guy who loved to talk about relationships, politics, business, grand life plans…and fashion. Clearly, we really are besties. He constantly churned out killer one-liners, but one in particular rings in my mind when thinking of white outfits, “Shaunna, never, and I mean never, “do” white leggings. It just doesn’t look right. Do not do it. I beg of you.” If only a sound bite were included. You would crack up and your heart will fill up to the brim with love at how precious (and serious) he sounded in that moment. I’m holding strong to that promise over here, Albie…maybe.
Here are some tips for staying fresh in that ice hot winter white getup, girl.
1: Be careful. Don’t be an idiot.
2: Texture is your friend.
3: Play with varying lengths and fits.
4: Your shoes make or break your entire outfit.
5: No white leggings (unless you’re Miley).POSTED IN Craving, Outfit Inspiration, Style, Trends, Unexpected Details, What to Wear
