Friday Fab: Winter White

Yes, I wear white after Labor Day (although technically this is “Warm Ivory”)! I love, love, love this shift from J. Crew. It’s heavy enough to keep me warm, the exposed zipper details are a fun accent and it’s super comfortable! It’s easy to dress this up as shown, or to wear a simpler necklace or statement earrings instead. As it warms up I’ll change my footwear and nix the tights.

This is the key to wearing lighter colors in winter: make sure they are in season-appropriate fabrics. Leave the linen and eyelet for warmer temps.

The Look for Less: Jennifer Aniston in Vivienne Westwood

Jennifer Aniston rocked this haute tangerine peek-a-boo Vivienne Westwood dress at the launch of her eponymous fragrance earlier this year…and we decided to rock our own blouson version by BCBGeneration (bought on sale for under $100).  This dress is a definite head-turner and a refreshing change from the usual little black dress.  We’re pairing it with nude strappy pumps by Aldo, or perhaps our lucite Manolos (purchased on Ebay!) for a leg-lengthening look (because looking like a walking jack-o-lantern is not what’s haute in the streets).  We think even our leopard booties would work!
