Winter White

I never understand why fashion writers go wild when designers feature white pieces in their F/W collections. What could be more beautiful than a woman wearing crisp white wool pants and a white faux fur on a bitter, perhaps snowy, day?

I hope this season’s abundance of winter white puts an end to the antiquated notion that white should only be worn with a tan. As Peter Som shows us, white is always elegant, regardless of the temperature outside.

The lesson of the day is: let fabrics–and not color–dictate your seasonal clothing choices. Some affordable options:
