I once said that wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion no no. However, after seeing this Fashionista I take it back. WEAR WHITE IN THE WINTER! When done right it looks absolutely fabulous! It also seems fitting after our very intense Midwest blizzard.

This Fashionista wore a white skirt with a white long-sleeved shirt tucked in. Although typically I would associate an outfit like this with spring or summer she made it winter appropriate with black tights, black over the knee boots, and a brown fur vest. She also accented the white with a black belt and a black necklace. These pieces really popped against the neutral color.

Although she is breaking the cardinal rule of no white until Memorial Day, her trendy pieces make it work. The black over the knee boots are a must for every Fashionista. Not only do they keep you warm they are chic and sexy. This Fashionista sported high heel boots, but flat knee-highs are a good alternative and practical for walking around campus. Another element of her outfit that I loved was her fur vest. I wrote about the fur trend in December, and still see Fashionista’s sporting it left and right. Not only is it one of the hottest trends this winter, it actually keeps you warm in this brutal weather! This trend proves that even in the harshest temperatures you can keep a sense of style.
Remember, people, rules are meant to be broken, go crazy and wear white!

Hint: For a fabulous fur vest check out this one by BB Dakota available at Shopbop. Looking for over the knee boots? Try these by Steve Madden. The best part about these two pieces is they’re on sale! To tie it all together try this white dress from American Apparel to layer with.
