White Is the New Black: Hints From Runway to Street Style for Fall
Fall and winter is upon us and we do not have to wear all dark colors for fall in Los Angeles. Our weather in fall can be warmer than summer. Fashionista’s can still be in style with wearing more white even when the weather gets cooler.
Predicting that the fashion trend this last part of 2013 is that white is the new black. Whether you mix white with back or other darker colors, it’s time to lighten up your fashion for fall and winter. Think about wearing white for evening or pairing a lot of white with other colors.
Hint #1: White shoes look nice with denim shorts for a street style look and white tees look hot with black denim skinny jeans. Pair the white t- shirt and skinny jeans with a large white chunky fashion white and black handbag to complete the look.
Hint#2: White flowy dresses on the runway can be taken to your evening style paired with simple black accessories to dress up the look
Hint#3; White tops with black skirts to the knee seen on the runway transition casual evening business meetings or dinners or family function and cocktail parties. More dressy looks would be to us a sleeveless white top with a longer skirt in black. Wearing white at the top portion of your body will brighten your look more than wearing white below and black above. If you do wear black on top, wear a large chunky white necklace to brighten it up and some white earrings.
Hint#4 Men’s casual day jackets go from black to beige or white paired with caramel pants. This look sits right for the evening date or the walk about town or a lunch meeting for the casual day dresser.
Hint#5; Evening satin dresses in white look great for a red carpet look or a dinner date. Pair with black dangling earrings to give the look some edge if your blonde. If you’re brunette, try a brighter color like coral for the warm skinned or silver for the cooler skin tones.
Hint#6: If you are not comfortable wearing a lot of white, use black geometric prints in black and white such as a skirt in a geometric print in B&W or reverse it with a top. Pair with white shoes and a white thick bangle to complete the look.
Hint#7 Celebrities on the runway like Jane Seymour really know how to pair the right jackets and accessories with outfits. Take her lead with a white dress and a deep metallic silver jacket over it and grey shoes. This is still a look that can transition to the LA fall weather and makes a great look for that happy hour wine tasting event or a gallery showing.
Hint # 8: Accessories in white are what is in for fall. White jewelry, white and beige handbags and white shoes will liven up any color you wear and give contrast to other colors you are wearing. The white accessories actually make your colors stand out more if you are wearing color because white is such a polar opposite any color. Try placing a white head band with long locks if you are wearing an all-black top to heighten the look and bring color to your face.
Enjoy mixing and matching and putting your look together for fall. With these hints you can’t go wrong for any occasion whether its day time or nighttime, street wear or office wear.Styles from spring certainly transcend to fall and winter fashion in Los Angeles.
