On The Runway
While wearing white in the summertime calls for simple, breezy pieces, winter white requires a bit of textural intrigue. Take Derek Lam’s sophisticated pairing: the chunky Corded Wool Cable Knit Sleeveless Sweater ($890) grounds the silk Georgette Maxi Skirt ($2650) in Ivory. The look was even more romantic at The Row, where the outfit consisted of the Long Cady Skirt ($1990) and a romantic blouse (like McQ Alexander McQueen’s Crinkled Silk-Chiffon Blouse ($515)).
Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler offered sharply tailored interpretations of this shade. Alexander Wang mixed minimalist white pieces, like the Magnified Fishnet Turtleneck ($795), a buttoned-up vest, Wool-Twill Blazer ($560), and Cropped Wool-Twill Pants ($425). The result is polished and crisp. Proenza Schouler combined the Asymmetric Leather-Coated Woven Cotton Jacket ($2650) with loose trousers, similar to the label’s Wide Leg Pleated Pants ($875), for a striking statement.
Get The Look
Gap’s Boyfriend Pocket Shirt ($60) in White, and a shrunken sweater, like Gap’s Ribbed Turtleneck ($40) in Ivory Frost, to wear over it. Top it off with a cropped cover-up: Schott N.Y.C.’s Lambskin Perfecto Moto Jacket ($560). Pencil Skirt, Tibi’s Tess Jacquard Pencil Skirt ($390) in Cream. Finally, ground the all-white pieces with Hue’s Soft Opaque Knee High Socks ($7) and Charles David’s Flash Booties ($395) in Black, which offer just the right amount of color contrast to a winter white outfit.
