Fashion Friday

fashion logo

Labour day is long gone but my love for a great white outfit is most definitely not. White will always be one of my favourite colours to wear, even during this time of year. Winter whites are clean, crisp and look great up against the beautiful winter weather. Whether your entire look or just pieces of your outfit are white, you will look bright, fresh and winter ready.

Let it snow,

Kalina

White boots are a perfect way to add a funky edge to a wintery outfit. The majority of boot options are usually dark coloured making these white combat boots my new favourite. Lucky for me Doc Martens come in a variety of colours, even white!

Even a white dress can be winter appropriate. Designer Balmain, known for their use of structure and texture, has an amazing white dress in their Spring 2014 collection. Because of its thickness, this white dress is perfect for the holidays. Seen on the runway (left) and on star Blake Lively (right).

RDP vet Stephanie always looks fashionable, especially in this adorable white pea coat, which she found at a local thrift shop (left). Another great jacket option is the trench style. Guess has a super feminine, wintery white trench this season that I love (right).

Kalina’s Fashion Tip: Sassy Saturday

It can be difficult to look and feel fabulous underneath all of our winter layers. A great way to be warm and chic is the infamous turtleneck. Sleek and sophisticated, they can add to an already amazing outfit or stand out on their own. With so many varieties and ways to wear them they have to be one of my favorite cold-weather staples.

Get your turtle on,

Kalina

American Apparel is known for their simplicity and they have mastered the art of the turtleneck. My beautiful friend Haley is modeling a perfect black turtleneck dress that is both warm and incredibly elegant. American Apparel has about every single variation of turtleneck in every colour imaginable, go crazy!!

photo#2

Even designers such as Salvatore Ferragamo are featuring this classic in their fall/winter campaign. In both dark and light shades turtlenecks are always timeless and flattering.

photo#3

Although out of season, cropped, sleeveless turtlenecks are also a great way to keep this trend going all year round. I can always count on RDP vet Mariah to rock a fabulous cropped turtleneck and look amazing doing it!
