HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 



1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, such as a nice white beret or a beanie. White scarves are also a great place to start. You can opt for an oversized white scarves. White faux fur scarves are also a lovely option!
What white accessories are my favourite ones? There is a whole list, but here is what comes to my mind first:
- white knit and faux fur scarves,
- white bags,
- white berets and beanies,
- white sneakers,
- white heels.






















2. FIND A GOOD PAIR OF WHITE JEANS

I was going to write buy a pair of white jeans, but then I checked myself. All the white jeans I own are vintage. Yes, ALL of them. I found a lot of white jeans in my husband's closet. That's the benefit of having a skinny husband.

Looking for suggestions for styling white jeans? Well, here are some.
- Try styling your white years with neutral colours such as grey.
- For extra cozy vibes, pair your white jeans with sweaters.
- Wear your white jeans with pastel shades.
- Pair them with a teddy bear coat (this combination of shades looks fabulous).








3. TRY WEARING A WHITE COAT,  A JACKET OR A BLAZER

Outerwear is not to be ignored. In fact, outwear can be the perfect way to infuse more white into your winter styling. If you ask me, a white coat and/or a blazer always look incredibly elegant. If you opt for neutral shades, you can be sure of creating a look that looks put together. A white leather (or faux leather) jacket on the other hand can be simply perfect for casual styling and everyday wear.










4. GIVE WHITE SKIRTS AND DRESSES A CHANCE

White skirts are actually quite easy to style. The same goes for white dresses. If you are not comfortable wearing an all white skirt or a dress, you can always choose one with a patter. Recently you have seen me wearing this white dress with a cherry print. You don't have to go shopping for new dresses either. You can wear your summer dresses, you make sure you stay warm. You can style your white dresses or skirts by wearing warm tights or leggings under them. 






5. REMEMBER: A WHITE SHIRT IS A CLASSIC FOR A REASON 

There isn't anything more classical than a white shirt, is there? A white shirt looks great worn with anything from jeans to business suits. If you want your look to be more bohemian, you can always choose a folk inspired white shirt. I personally love folklore white shirts. Everything looks better paired with a white shirt!





Do you like wearing white in winter? If yes, how do you do it? Have you ever rocked an all white look in winter? If yes, do you have any style tops to share? That would be all for today. Thank you for reading and have a lovely evening.

  1. I'm always worried I'd get my precious white outfit dirty by wearing them too often, ughhh. I love having a good pair of white jeans or white knit sweater or something :)

  2. I love to wear white in the winter (in all seasons really) since it's a beautiful color. I actually have a monochrome white look coming up on my blog in the next few weeks so this was a fun coincidence. I usually go for white sweaters, jeans and scarves when it comes to wearing white in the colder months.

  6. You look lovely in your winter white! I wish I could wear white pants! I have a pair of pastel pink shorts I stain every time I wear them so I know I'm not ready for white ones yet, haha! I did buy a white tee a couple months ago I've been trying to wear more often, despite my clumsiness!

    Hope that your week is going well :)

  10. Some fashion rules are made to be broken and you've wonderfully illustrated some stylish ways to wear white during the winter. I don't own anything white and it's color I don't wear because I always seem to attract dirt whenever I do so I just avoid it completely ;p

  17. Io adoro indossare il bianco, è uno dei miei colori perferiti e lo metto spesso tutto l'anno!
    Sicuramente in inverno però è un pò più difficile trovare il modo di portare questo colore, ed i tuoi suggerimenti sono davvero utili!
    E poi a te sta benissimo, soprattutto vicino al viso: ti illumina e fa un bellissimo contrasto con i tuoi capelli!
    Sei sempre super carina nelle foto! :)
    Baci!

  28. Dear Ivana, thanks a lot for sharing all the fantastic tips! I love wearing white in general and especially white sneakers, white tees and blouses are staples in my wardrobe. Only white jeans are mostly challenging for me - honestly I don't know why! But thanks to your input now I will give them again a chance! Happy weekend!

    1. thank you. You know I only started wearing white jeans recently. For some reason I found them challenging too. However, ever since I started to wear them more often I realized they are not that hard to style. They look wonderful paired with pastel colours.

  29. Not many people can pull that look off...especially in the winter.
    White looks good on you anytime of the year. I love to match white with sparkling silver jewelry, especially earrings.

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.

TROGIR CITY (PART TWO): KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND OTHER SIGHTS

KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND FORTRESS 

As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy.
