Winter Whites for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: the Dressy Version
Quote of the day: “Fear is going to be a player in your life, but you get to decide how much.” Jim Carrey
Most of us grew up with the “rule” that you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day. Let me be very clear—this rule is now extinct! So don’t stow away your white pieces in your “summer clothes” just yet (unless they are very lightweight and totally impractical for the colder months–although you can use them with the trick of layering). Of course, if you still have an aversion to wearing that stark, bright white in the colder months, how about going for the winter white? Winter white is described as white wool: a much softer white with a hint of beige to it. For this series of blogs I’ll have a monochromatic look, a partial look and the accessories look for our different age groups.
50’s Winter Whites (the monochromatic look): I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of a monochromatic look, however, the easiest way to get this look is with a dress! Then it all flows effortlessly and all you have to pick out is the footwear!
60’s Winter Whites (the partial look): If you are trying to showcase the winter white for the top half, I’d recommend keeping the bottom half subdued. With that in mind, wearing the grey skirt and grey shoes puts all the attention on the flowery blouse.
70’s Winter Whites (the accessories look): For the silver haired ladies, winter white accessories can be a better look. Since this is the dressy version post, I thought, why not pile on your strands of pearls (faux or real) for a layered effect? Call it a pearl scarf. The shrug is a great addition if you’re looking for a little extra warmth (see the snow on the ground)!
