Winter Whites

One of my favourite colours to wear during the winter months is white. I know what you are thinking, between the slush, salt and sleet, it makes it nearly impossible to keep your winter whites, white! I love how chic it looks though! Regardless of the added care that goes along with wearing light colours in less than friendly weather, I love how it brightens and freshens up a wardrobe that tends to be mostly dark during the cold months. A white wool coat is a classic staple and can be either dressed up or down. I paired mine with a grey slouchy bag from Coach and grey knitted scarf. I tend to lean more towards pairing white with other neutrals such as grey or cream but one of the great things about white coats is that you can choose a bold colour or print to pair it with.

Dry cleaners become our wool coat's best friends here in Toronto (always read the labels though!) Whenever possible, try spot cleaning as you go. Maintaining your coats as much as possible day-to-day will go a long way to keeping them looking great. Invest in a soft suede brush and gently brush your coat; this will remove any lint and surface soil. At the end of the winter months, I take them to be dry cleaned and then use garment bags to store them away in my closet.

This particular one is from Zara (exact one no longer available). There are some great sales on outerwear at the moment so now is good time to shop for a few pieces for next year. Some of my favourite stores that cater to petite sizes in outwear are Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Aritzia and Zara.

What do you guys think about wearing white in Winter?
