Maybe because I spend so much time in South Florida or maybe just because, I love not playing by old style rules, especially when it comes to wearing white. This clean, crisp hue is one I like wearing all year round, as long as it doesn’t scream summer when it’s almost winter. Winterizing white is as easy as making a few subtle, stylistic tweaks that involve the addition of texture, weight and a grounding color that is rich and warm like brown or black. These AG wide-leg cropped jeans with raw hems look perfectly fitting on this November day paired with a Vince cashmere sweater and strappy Sam Edeleman suede pumps.
In addition to using black as my contrasting color, I’ve added more weight to the look with my oversized sweater and introduced three textures into the mix – cashmere, suede and calf-hair – for an overall of-the-season take on white.

Jeans (also love these and these)

I’m a huge lover of white any time of year! And I think you’ve “winterized” these jeans perfectly—at least for somewhat cool weather!
My biggest love are these shoes–my step mom has a pair just like them and absolutely loves them (now—I’m not sure she felt the same way when I twisted her arm to get them!)
Another great look…. JL
Great post! You pull off this look so well. I am going to have to put one of those handbags on my Christmas wish list!
Those jeans are too cool! Perfectly styled with your awesome heels and black top. I love white all year too, and this is proof of why.
Straight A Style
I styled a white monochrome look for Instagram today. Not ready to say good bye to this shade ever
From my first encounter, I’ve been a big fan of your fashion style and this outfit explains why. Simple yet elegant, seemingly plain but dramatic, and striking as a whole. If I could, I’d dress just like you — but I lack the subtle talent you possess.
Laid back with structure. I love this look!
I love white year round! Those jeans are so cool and I love how you winterized this look! So pretty!

You look stunning! Loving those strappy heels!
