Finding fashion inspiration in the dark days of winter is no small feat. How many of us have become trapped in the same-old-black-sweater routine as we’ve waited patiently for warmer weather to break us from the drab color rut? This season, break out a little early with crisp, clean winter white. Ranging from stark-snow to almost-cream, this statement color is fresh, ethereal and downtown chic all at once. For dramatic results, select a focal piece and pop it against a darker monochromatic look. White after labor day? Abso-fashion-lutely!
