Even though winter officially begins this weekend, snow was falling for several hours this afternoon. The weather in Boston today has inspired my Tuesday Trend Day topic: winter white. As long as you don’t have to travel great distances, falling snow is very pretty especially this time of year with holiday lights on display. Winter white clothing is also very pretty as long as you don’t spill anything on them!
You can put together an all white outfit like these featured in the runway shows:
Derek Lam, Proenza Schouler, Tommy Hilfiger, fall 2013
