Get the Look : Winter Whites

I am a big fan of white after Labor Day. Few things look as great as a crisp, clean white outfit and I couldn't care less about what time of year I wear it. On the other hand, there is a marked difference between summer and winter whites, but white as whole should never be off limits. You can wear your favorite white pieces long through the fall and winter, just like Happily Grey's Mary Seng does here.

Winter whites differ from the bright whites of summer in that they are a bit creamier, calmer, and cozier. They aren't quite as stark and clear. As is the case with creating any monotone outfit, don't be afraid to mix and match shades. Just make sure to test them together to make sure they aren't too similar or too different. The element I like most in Seng's look is her cozy cable knit sweater. It screams fall/winter even when paired with a short white skirt. There is no mistaking this outfit for a late summer stretch.

Get started pairing your winter whites with some sweaters and skirts below.

My style is forever changing. Some days I like to mix things up with my leather jacket over a flawy maxi dress and some days I look like I stepped right out of a J.Crew catalog. I don't like being pigeonholed to one style inspiration, so instead I use them all. This is the reason I am particularly fond of blogger Mary Seng and her site Happily Grey.

Seng started her blog in 2013 just to have a little fun with fashion and try it out as a fashion blogger. As it turns out, she really knows what she's doing! Seng's posts show her in a variety of outfits and styles as she writes about her life and inspirations. Like me, she doesn't think it necessary to label herself with one particular fashion category and instead embraces a number of them. She dresses to please herself and no one else, giving her a unique and wonderful look all her own.
