It’s after Labor Day Weekend, so it’s time to pack up your whites until next…naw, just kiddin’ ya. White is sticking around all winter as a strong trend for Fall/Winter 2012. So, for those of us who love to steal out into the frosty streets in shades of white, this is a great season to collect more of the pieces you love.
There’s a look here to fit every age. Take your favorite look and tweak it to make the silhouette work for your body type. Do short sleeves with a maxi, shorten (or lengthen) a hemline, and pick a dress that highlights your best parts. Black is a great choice for accessories, but dressing tonally in white and cream is also a strong choice. Go with a shade that looks best with your skin tone.
I think of trends like a fashion buffet. Grab the things that work for you (shapes, colors, accessories, silhouettes), and leave the rest for the next person. Sometimes a trend we love, suits us better in an accessories (i.e. choosing a baroque-inspired clutch over a whole baroque dress.) In the end, fashion is personal and that’s what makes it (and us) interesting.
More awesome posts I did (hmm, so humble…) on the white trend, which has been gaining steam since Spring 2011.
