I think it’s safe to say that girls love to wear white in the summer. Not only does white just look so clean and nice but it also matches everything. Why don’t we wear more white in the winter then? I grew up with a mom who loves wearing winter white, so to me I always saw it as this beautiful and flattering color that produces a softness when worn. A winter white turtleneck was always the epitome of chic and beautiful.
So when my engagement party rolled around in November I knew winter white was the perfect way to go. However, I wanted something that I would be able to wear again, especially to work. You don’t see a lot of winter white at work, which I never quite understood. You don’t need to just wear black or dark colors to look professional. Professional to me isn’t about a color but more about how your articles of clothing fit and being properly covered. Since this dress has three quarter sleeves and a higher neckline I would consider this work appropriate, however, if you want to give it a more corporate feel I think by adding a black blazer it gives it that extra oomph that you’re looking for.
The weather was surprisingly mild when I wore this so I opted for bare legs and nude wedge pumps but black tights with black pumps would be perfect for work, especially with the black blazer. Plus, tights are always a sure fire way to stay warmer in dresses in the winter.
If dresses aren’t necessarily your thing you could always pair a winter white turtleneck with a pencil skirt or with a classic skinny work pant. What is so amazing about winter white is just how versatile it is, just like how your trusty pair of white jeans are in the summer.
All of this winter white talk has me craving a new winter white sweater, so I think I’ll go do that now…
