I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m largely incapable of buying or wearing anything that isn’t a neutral color in fall/winter. I don’t know why, but I used to be this way year-round until I told myself, “enough is enough Lauren, add some color to your wardrobe!” So, I am actually attempting to break that habit and recently bought a few colorful items I plan to share with you all soon. But for now, we can focus on this neutral fall outfit, which incorporates my favorite white skinnies (that are currently on sale for under $40)!
Wearing white pants in the fall and winter is something I’ve always struggled with. It’s not just because of the “no white after Labor Day” rule, but because there seems to be something inherently wrong with wearing white when the night begins at 4:00 PM, and you’re at risk of getting frostbite any time you step outside. Maybe my Southern readers don’t have this mental problem, but it always seems like white is such a bright, summer color that it’s just too cheery for the winter dreariness. I’ve attempted to overcome this mind frame in the last two years, and I’m here to help you do so as well!
An easy way to style white pants in the fall and winter is to keep your look casual by wearing them with an oversized sweater. Any sweater will do, but I prefer to wear a neutral color to create a clean and crisp look. Call it winter camouflage as I just blend in with my snowy surroundings! You can also “live on the edge” and style white pants with a bold rust colored top like I did in this post or take a different approach by wearing a darker top. Pairing white pants with a lacy top like this one would be a very trendy twist on a typical winter outfit.
I recently picked up this sweater from Nordstrom Rack when I was wandering around downtown after lunch with my sister (oops!). I couldn’t pass it up because it’s under $27 and is perfect for fall/winter. The marled grey color goes well with a pair of white pants and tan booties to create that perfect neutral fall outfit. You can also wear it off the shoulder and either way, it’s long enough to be styled with leggings, which makes it easy to dress down. It comes in burgundy if you too want to add some color to your wardrobe!
Now that we’re done unpacking, I’ve been busy cleaning and doing laundry all week since that fell by the wayside the last two weeks. I finally feel like this apartment is our new home just in time for our first visitors this weekend. A good couple friend of ours is visiting on Saturday, and we can’t wait to show them around our new neighborhood! They used to be our neighbors at our old place, and I miss them so much!
Do you have any fun plans this weekend?!
