Winter White for 3 Generations of Women over 40.

Winter Whites for All Ages: The Monochromatic Version

Quote of the day: “There is no failure except in no longer trying.” Elbert Hubbard

Even though the calendar says winter and many days are cold & snowy, I personally am super glad that the rules have changed in regards to wearing white. For some reason, I’ve always been a huge sucker for white items (except lab coats—I abhor those!).

Two years ago the 3 of us styled outfits for a winter white series here, here & here. At that time I had a monochromatic look, a partial white look and an accessory in white for each of the posts. Now I’m switching it up and starting with each of us wearing all white. Except for the shoes & accessories—I had to add in color somewhere and somehow!

It also makes me extremely happy to welcome Mireille as a blogette once again for this series. If any other readers would be interested to join us on the blog, I’d love to incorporate you! Just email me, and I can let you know the upcoming themes!

My mother (Charlotte, the 70’s model) has always been a huge fan of the monochromatic look. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from her lips, that it makes you appear slimmer. Now if you know me at all, then you realize that I tend to question everything and love to play the devil’s advocate. Therefore when the talk is about the monochromatic style being more flattering, I’m always the first one to try to say, “fine, let’s try it out and see!”

So here we are in our all white looks. I would argue that it’s not the color that makes us look thinner, but the cut and style of the pieces we are wearing. But I’ve been known to be wrong! So you tell me, is the monochromatic look the way to go?

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: My all white look incorporated a white blazer that I recently purchased for only $18. When I was working, I never had an all white jacket because it reminded me of a lab coat way too much. So I’ve been searching for one ever since I retired. Can you believe it’s taken this long? I didn’t want to spend too much, or have it look too workish. And I think this one is perfect. The texture of the material & the ruched sleeves add enough frivolity, I thought!

For my accessories and shoes, I went with animal prints!! Of course, you could say that the belt distracts from the overall monochromatic look?

I even made sure to grab my glasses that had browns in them to keep with the theme! And my necklace is actually much longer, but I used an orthodontic elastic around the back to tie it to make it shorter!

 I have to admit, I didn’t love this outfit in the photos (I liked it well enough when I got dressed or I would have changed clothes). So of course, I tried to analyze the why. Not that I have the answers, but what do you think? My whites aren’t exactly the same colors? The belt messes up the long line (is there a long line when I’m so short?)? Maybe I shouldn’t have buttoned the jacket?

Jeans: LOFT (here remember, the LOFT has sales almost continuously—I usually pay around $30 for these)~~Jacket: BooHoo (similar here with lace as the texture)~~Top: Jillanova (similar here)~~Shoes: Ballasox (similar here)~~Belt: (similar here-2 for the price of 1)~~Necklace: (similar here or here in a heart shaped)~~Earrings: (similar here)

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: On to Nancy’s all white outfit. For one of us, I wanted to add in a bright color with the monochromatic top & bottom. Since Nancy has these fun, blue shoes, I decided that she got to be the lucky girl!!

But even though we were going for blue in her shoes & necklace, I wanted to switch the color of the earrings and not be so matchy-matchy! I pulled out the coral color from the necklace and used that for the earrings!

Nancy bought these blue shoes online when I found them for her for only $9. She accidentally hit the purchase button twice so she wound up with 2 pairs. That’s why I have the matching pair in my closet. The shoes certainly don’t have great support (what can you expect for $9), but I usually wear my insoles or orthodics in mine, which make them more comfortable!

And look at how nicely the neighbor’s car matches Nancy’s look! I didn’t plan for it to be in the shot at first, but once I saw how the blues were the same, I figured “why not?”

Jeans: Chicos (similar here in an ankle length version)~~Cardigan: J. Jill (similar here with white buttons–under $10!!)~~Top: Talbots (similar here)~~Shoes: (similar here in a loafer version or here in a Toms version)~~Necklace: (similar here as flowers or here as stones)~~Earrings: (similar here)

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: I wasn’t sure what kind of color I was going to add into mom’s monochromatic look. She was the last of the photos taken for this category, so I let her choose! She opted for these grey flats that she got at a thrift store, so I though that adding a neutral would be a great variety for the outfits!

Instead of a necklace or regular scarf, I figured we’d take advantage of the colder weather and bundle up mom in her fur scarf. The nice thing about this scarf, is it has an opening already in it so the one end goes through the other to keep it in place.

Winter White for 3 Generations of Women over 40.

When I picked out this brooch to add to the fur piece, mom commented that it was a “summer” brooch! I asked her why she considered it a summer brooch, and she said because it’s white! Now tell me that’s not ironic, since we are doing a winter white series? I do consider this another perfect accessory on which to add a pin. Did you see the post just 2 weeks ago that was all about adding bling to accessories with a brooch?

Winter White for 3 Generations of Women over 40.

And since we are being rebellious by wearing white in the winter, I figured we might as well break another rule. Can you see it? There’s gold in the brooch and I had mom wear silver earrings.

Jeans: XOXO (similar here)~~Sweater: Pierre Cardin (similar here)~~Shoes: thrifted (similar here in a solid color grey or here with silver accents)~~Fur Scarf: (similar here in burgundy)~~Brooch: (similar here as a bird family—so cute)~~Earrings: (similar here as a set with a necklace)

Mireille (blogette): I love that Mireille and my mom are basically wearing the same outfit. There may be almost 40 years difference between the two, but this is why I love to say that style is ageless!

In Mireille’s words: “As soon as you said winter whites, I thought of my favorite boots! So I paired ankle pants with them (a trick I learned from Tania at 50 is not old who wears her ankle pants throughout the whole year) and one of my fair trade crochet scarfs. I wrapped the scarf 3 times around my neck so it wouldn’t distract too much from the white.”

  • I love all white. Such a crisp look

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Michelle!!

  • Oh my goodness, I love every single one of these looks. There is just something so beautiful about all white monochromatic look. Great job!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Sarah!!

  • Mother Daughter

    I love all white or all white with a pop of color. All white and all black are both colors I wear a lot of. You all look great.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Victoria!!

  • Anna Parkes

    I think Nancy has to get my vote this week. I love the blue offsetting white perfectly, especially those shoes. Your white outfit is really cute Jodie, so I’m not sure what it is that you’re seeing. Sometimes we’re too close to be objective you know 🙁 I would have dodged something into the mix too, and leopard is such an easy choice – and it works!
    Have a fab week x
    Anna

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for the vote Anna!!
      What you said is probably right Anna. Because it’s when I was putting the post together and looking at the photos over and over that I thought my outfit looked off! But now that it’s been out of my head for awhile, I look at it and think it’s not that bad!! We are funny people, huh?

  • You all look great in white. The nipped in waist of your jacket is very flattering and the animal print shoes and belt stand out against the white. Nancy’s blue shoes look amazing with the all white outfit, as does your mom’s faux fur scarf and brooch. I very rarely wear all white – I’m just too messy!

      Thanks Emma!!
      I hear what you’re saying about being messy. Do you know what my mom said about that once? She was saying that it’s much easier to get stains out of all white because you can bleach the entire thing! As opposed to colored garments, where you have to figure out how to get the stain out without removing the color!! Interesting perspective, huh?
      Happy Friday!!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    i love all of these Jodie. Your jacket is so cute and the slightly different white’s give the outfit an more eclectic feel, rather than looking like the “man from glad”. Do you remember him? Ha, ha. And I really think what makes all of these work is the textures. Each outfit has its own unique texture. I also love the pop of blue in Nancy’s outfit and the fur scarf in Mom’s. I also like how Mireille paired her outfit with her cute boots. You are inspiring me, once again. – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I totally remember the “man from glad”—that’s so funny you thought of him!!
      Maybe that’s why I don’t gravitate to this monochromatic look? LOL!! But it’s fun to change it up once in a while!!
      Thanks for all your wonderful support!

  • Robbie Cheadle

    What a great idea. I love the idea of wearing light colours, including white, during winter. I try to always wear vibrant colours and stay away from black.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Me too, Robbie!!
      I’ve been trying very hard not to even buy anymore black items. The hardest part though is that retailers seem to always have a ton of black in the stores—ugh!!
      Happy Thursday and thanks so much for giving your voice!!

      • Robbie Cheadle

        I agree, Jodie. I haven’t bought anything new for a few months because I can’t find anything I like in the shops.

  • Melissa

    Yes Yes Yes!! Love the all white monochromatic look. I also like to break the rules and wear white all year long. Love the clean feel it gives. And I love your outfit, you have different textures of white which doesn’t result in a wash-out look!

    xo
    Mel

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mel!! Maybe that’s why I loved this blazer so much—the texture makes it different!!

  • Nikki Frank-Hamilton

    You all look great in all white. I need to wear a color up near my face or I look horrid. So I am really envious! I love the mural you posed in front of, that color blue is a favorite of mine and the white looks great with it. Although I love the animal print belt you wore, I think you are right, it breaks up the line and doesn’t elongate you like Nancy and Mom’s outfits do. As always I love the pictures, you have quite the talent, once again I’m envious!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for the kind words Nikki!!
      How you feel about white near your face is how I feel about black—but that doesn’t totally stop me from wearing it, LOL (does that make me a bad fashion blogger,?). I do usually try to add in color another way though—like a scarf or necklace or lots of lipstick!!!
      🙂

  • dan

    I like very much either white for winter and animal- print accessories and think that there is nothing wrong with your outfit. On the contrary, it has made me remember that…I have a pair of white jeans somewhere in my closet which I probably would like to style !!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Dan!!
      It is funny how we “forget” about some of our clothes at times—they are in the same closet, but we tend to reach for the same things over and over!! Can’t wait to see your white jeans!!

  • I really love winter whites – especially when accented with fur! And you are right about how hard it is to find a blazer which doesn’t make you feel like you are wearing a lab coat. Glad to see you finally found your perfect one!
    Chic on the Cheap

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lydia!!
      I think the fur does add so much fun to this outfit—it definitely makes it seem more wintery!!

  • Mary Kalpos

    Jodie this is a really great look. I have to say your mom looks like one of those movie stars. Ageless, flawless and timeless.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mary!!
      You realize that you just made my mom’s day with that compliment—I forwarded it to her so she can enjoy your words!!!

      • Mary Kalpos

        Haha! Glad to hear it!

  • Carol Murphy

    I like all three outfits – I love winter white.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Carol!!

  • That’s a nice style! You all look good in white.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much!

  • I have always adored the way winter white looks, alhough I do not wear white very often, I love these looks here. Blue and white looks lovely together as well. Have a wonderful week.

    Be far one of my favourite posts Jodie – love all these looks. I recently wore my white jeans and will be featuring them within the next week or so. I would never normally wear white jeans in the wet winter months, but I now see I can wear them when it’s not wet, but possibly cold! Hope you’re well Jodie. x Jacqui

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I can totally understand not wearing them when it’s crazy wet and sloppy, Jacqui!!
      Luckily, we don’t have a ton of that here!!
      Can’t wait to see your white jeans too!! 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Monica!!

  • I don’t wear much white at all, but I love all of these looks. Thanks for sharing!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Hey Barbie—your comment intrigues me! Why don’t you wear much white?
      Not that I normally wear head to toe white, but I love my white jeans (that’ll be Friday’s post, ha ha)
      🙂

  • This is one of my absolute favorites. You know I love winter white! I feel like as time goes along, more of anything goes, and I love it!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a great way to put it Laura—more of anything goes!! You’re so right!!
      Thanks for the love!

  • I love snowy white for wintertime, and Charlotte’s look is the embodiment of why. It looks frosty, cozy, and crisp. I think monochromatic looks can be very polished and chic. They’re minimalist but still look so thoughtful. I like that you all added pops of color and texture with your accessories. It keeps things fun and puts your own individual touches on your looks.

      I love that term crisp—it works so well for this theme!!

  • This is a terrific post…. and all the comments really show how different we all are and how each version of this outfit speaks to each of us differently. How fun! My favorite was Charlotte’s. The pairing of the grey looks fabulous and soft with the white.

    Homeruns all around!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Em!
      It is amazing how we are all drawn to different specifics and certain looks. I truly think that’s what so nice about fashion and style (even for the house). We can all be different and still look great!
      My mom will be tickled pink that her outfit stood out for you—I forwarded your comment so she could read it!!

  • You ladies all look fabulous! I adore white as well. And I really like the pop of blue from Nancy’s shoes – so fun! 🙂 (And yay that you ended up with a pair too!)

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Lindsey!!

  • Loving all these winter whites! You guys look great!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Joti!!

  • Judy Gramith

    I think you ALL look really wonderful in your winter whites! The accessories are terrific!
    Jodie,You have such a svelte figure that I don’t think the belt does any real harm to the overall effect. I like the animal prints and that includes the tortoise shell glasses!
    Nancy’s white and blue are very refreshing! The karma of the perfectly matching blue car is really cool! Cute shoes!!!!
    Charlotte’s fur wrap scarf and pin are very sophisticated and her white hair continues the monochromatic theme beautifully.
    Mireille’s gray boots (especially) and cozy infinity scarf break up the monochromatic theme just enough to remind us that the mostly white look really is WINTER worthy!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for such an enthusiastic comment for all of us, Jude!!
      I think you’re right that Mireille’s boots make this winter white more realistic for the season if there happens to be slush and yuckiness around!! Luckily in Denver, the snow usually melts fast and there are many days we don’t worry about that!
      🙂

  • Debbie Stinedurf

    I love me a good monochromatic look every once in awhile and I’m particularly fond of winter whites. I was thinking how fabulous your outfit was when I saw your comment about not loving it once you saw it in photos…don’t you hate when that happens? Anyway, being my helpful self I went back and looked it over more closely. I think you’re right…it’s the belt. I do like the belt with it, but if you were thinking in your brain “monochromatic” then yes, the belt breaks it up. I’m thinking a light camel or tan would’ve made you happier. 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I love how you put this Debbie! And I do have a tan belt—so really I should try it again and see if I like it better.
      What I truly don’t understand, is how I look in the mirror and everything seems great. But then I take the photos and it’s not as I imagined. I realize that the photos are only 2 dimensional, but it’s still so perplexing!!
      Thanks for your love!!

      • I really liked the belt, Debbie (and shoes). Going back to scrutinize, I think you might have liked it better unbuttoned – then there would only have been one horizonal line, all else vertical to elongate and play up the mono.

        I keep trying – but I can’t warm up to white, except with black and white, of course (accent on the black!) I do wear white in the summer because it is cooler, however, but I really miss my black on those super-hot days.

        I’ve always been a spiller – that’s probably where my dislike of white began originally. 🙂 (I KNOW it’s what made me decide, finally, to get rid of almost everything in my wardrobe that couldn’t be washed!!!)

          • Jodie Filogomo

            Actually it made me laugh, because people used to think I said Debbie when I said my name over the phone!! It was then that I learned to enunciate my name better!
            Maybe I just look like a Debbie?

          • Not really – I’ve been a touch typist since HS, and was a word processor when acting jobs were scarce, so I’m sure my fingers saw D’s name in the comment immediately above and typed Debbie (just to embarrass me, I’m sure).

            I think you look like a Jodie, btw. It suits you.

            People don’t really listen to names, in my experience. I get Maggie, Marilyn, Magdelen, even Natalie — as long as they don’t call me Maddy I simply correct and move on. Hated Maddy from the time I was tiny and couldn’t even pronounce my own name – Madelmum was my correction then (and my late father used to address my birthday cards with THAT one just to get my goat!)

          Madelyn—-you crack me up!! There are bibs for people like you, LOL!!
          But I think you’re right about the blazer and trying it unbuttoned. I wish I would think of these things while we are taking the photos and not afterwards!!
          So you and I would look great if we went out somewhere together—you’d be in black, and I’d be in white!! 🙂

          • We’d be like Snow White and Rose Red – remember that fairy tale? All I recall is that they were polar opposites, looks-wise – and since I am a dark-eyed brunette and my late sister was a blue-eyed blonde, that’s what I loved about it.

            Both of us preferred our own coloring, btw – my mother must have done an excellent job fostering our self-esteem, (not that I recall a single comment about it growing up).

            Now I am going seriously grey (almost white) – lovely, actually, but too close to platinum blonde for me, so I’ve had to add “do your roots!” to my over-long to-do list – and of course, now that I no longer want long hair, it grows like a weed (and THAT, boys and girls, is why God made hats – and scrunchies!)

            A BIB? Honey, it would take a plastic rain poncho. Seriously – you know those lobster-bibs some restaurants hand out? Well I somehow managed to get butter *under* mine. I think my ADD distractibility is at the root – but that sad habit has been around as long as I, so I have simply accepted the fact that some people were born to spill.

            You had me on the floor laughing with your “is why god made hats” comment!!

            I have to admit that since my hair is lighter than yours, that the greys don’t bother me since they kinda look blonde!! I’ve been following a group on FB called Going Grey Gracefully, and it’s quite inspirational!

          • I might be more of the “do not go gentle into . . .” persuasion. I am considering chopping it all off really short and dying it magenta or something – then when the roots grow out, it won’t look any stranger.

    I love how you had a variety of one with neutrals, one with brights and one with the element of texture.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Tracey! Since I don’t wear this style much, I figured I should try out many different ways to see what worked better!!
      🙂

  • I absolutely love all-white (or cream) outfits. You all look great. Those touches of blue really elevate Nancy’s outfit, and I love the brooch on fur with Mom’s. I think the reason you didn’t like your photos very much is that monochrome can be hard to photograph, particularly white and black. But your outfit looks great.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s such a good point, Gail!! I still don’t know a ton about photography, so I never think about those details!!
      Thanks for the positive words! I really appreciate your input!!

  • It’s so good to see bright colours! I think your outfit looks good with the belt Jodie. Maybe the camera hasn’t picked up the outfit like it truly is? Maybe it’s the difference in texture? I love the white jacket though. You will get loads of wear out of that I’m sure x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You really bring up a good point Laurie. Because just because something looks a certain way with the camera, doesn’t mean it’s exactly the same in person!! After blogging this much, you’d think I’d remember that!

  • I am loving all the winter whites in these pictures. One of my fave looks.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nancy!!

  • Laura

    I adore these outfits, especially the special touches you added to them like snakeskin in yours, blue in Nancy’s, and that fabulous scarf and brooch in your mom’s outfit. I think it looks amazing against the fur scarf!

    Wow I love all four Outfit. I love the good combination with the accessoires. Accessoires are the cherry on the cake! Your location, the wall, is amazing Jodie 🙂

      Thanks so much Tina!!
      Our downtown Littleton area has a couple of these fun murals!! And Rob doesn’t mind going down there because he usually gets to stop in one of his favorite coffee shops!!

  • Oh, I am going to love this series. Each of you look wonderful! I have to admit I was immediately drawn to the beautiful cobalt and white of Nancy’s look. Your mom’s grey stole was a fab choice with her look and a great way to showcase her brooch. I like what you are wearing and think having the jacket buttoned gives you a defined waistline, but if you did style it unbuttoned, maybe not tuck in your shirt for a longer, cleaner line? I like the bits of grey in Mirielle’s look, as well.

      Thanks for the positive thought Jennie. It would be interesting to see if I’d like my outfit better the way you suggested. It’s always hindsight, to wish I’d done it both ways when we were taking pictures so I could compare, huh?
      Happy Monday!!

  • I do love white year-round too. I don’t know that I would be brave enough to wear all white in the winter, but I’d love to see it happen!

      If it’s a beautiful day, it’d be a fun experiment, Lisa!! It’s when it’s a sloppy, snowy mess outside that it might be a little crazy!!!
      Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Jodie! You just reminded me about wanting to wear my white jeans and put a look together. Love all these looks, the rules are so silly! Your new jacket is perfect, my style as well.. fitted it shows of your slim figure. Love the additions of color with Nancy’s purple necklace and bright shoes and adore the fur color with brooch! all fantastic. ! You had me laughing about the lab coat!

      Thanks Jess!!
      I was wondering where this rule came from. Although I could see it being reasonable in the gross, snowy days when it’s slushy and sloppy! Luckily the snow melts here fast, so it’s really not an issue!!
      Happy Monday!!

    I didn’t even notice your whites were different until you pointed that out and how fun to be your mom’s twin! 😊 love the accent colors for each one of you and each time I see you wear animal prints, I tell myself I need to incorporate them in my outfits!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much for being such a great participant on the blog, Mireille!! I love how we gravitate toward certain combinations in our styling—and both you & mom look great in the white with grey!

  • You all look fabulous! I’m also glad that it’s now “okay” to wear white in winter! We used to follow some silly rules… 🙂

    Just the touch of color you added to your outfits is perfect! You inspired me to wear some white soon!

      You do wonder where all of the rules came from? Although I could see how white on the bottom half would get dirty at times?
      Thanks for the love, Andrea!!

  • I love a winter white outfit! You all look so lovely. I love Nancy’s bright shoes, and Charlotte’s fur scarf!
