Winter White

Hey Fashion Fabs!  For so many years, we’ve heard of the fashion rule “wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion faux pas”.  My question is who made up this “rule”?  I mean is there a fashion counsel who put in place this rule?   There’s no fashion commandment written in stone about wearing white after Labor Day.  I believe what should be taken into consideration is the fabric and not the color.  The thought of wearing linen, cotton, and rayon in the winter is not a good idea.  These fabrics are breathable, lightweight, and tend to keep the body cool.   Knits, fleece, and wool are ideal fabrics for the winter and will keep the body warm.  With that being said, I’ll give you the details on this warm, winter white, sweater lewk.         

I’ve been wanting a sweater set since the winter chill started.  However, I always came across a sweater set that was too casual or the pants were joggers.  Thank goodness I finally found this outfit at Target which can transition easily from day to night, and of course it’s reasonably priced.  I had one main concern about the pants when I purchased them.  I was concerned about a knee print appearing after wearing the pants for several hours.  Surprisingly, there were no knee prints in my pants after sitting, walking, and driving for several hours. 

The top and pants are actually knit separates and run a little large.  I’m a healthy size 12 but I purchased a medium top and large pants.  The sleeve length was a little too long for me and cuffing the sleeves was ideal.  The tall Fashion Fabs will appreciate the sleeve length.  Call me old school but I felt like I needed my version of a pants slip (aka shaper) just to keep my jewels covered.  LOL. 

On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give the separates a 9.  This is a timeless and affordable lewk for the winter.  Have a great day on purpose.
