The future is now

Wearing white. Unless it is your wedding day it can have a lot of issues…Its typically a summer colour, it is one of the less flattering colours to wear (well it is the opposite of black!) and it marks easily.  But…

…a white dress always looks cool and stylish! Dressing one for winter with a roll neck underneath and boots gives it a futuristic vibe which I’ve fully exploited in todays styling post. White is definitely is the colour to stand out in during the winter months and is great for looking a bit different.

The dress I’m wearing today is a Primark dress (last season but theres always tons of Primark on eBay) made from a thick quilted material with a half zip to the front.   white primark dress styled for winter via Always a Blue Sky girl fashion blogAlthough the quilting makes it a little bulky it also makes it very structured so it flares out beauifully at the waist (great if youre little and curvy like me). For size I am wearing the UK10 as it has some stretch to it.  white primark dress styled for winter via Always a Blue Sky girl fashion blog   white primark dress styled for winter via Always a Blue Sky girl fashion blog

Its all white

A little while back I blogged about a Primark haul I had done and bought, amongst other things, a white space age style dress I loved but wasn’t quite sure how I’d wear it for winter. Well today I wore it!

With it being cold outside, I wore the dress with Topshop knee boots, thick black tights and a black rib Dorothy Perkins roll-neck jumper underneath. To carry the monochrome look through I added a black statement bib necklace I got a few years ago from House of Fraser which I love. Overall the whole look is quite space age!

With its quite structured shaped and jetted waist and a-line skirt the cut is really flattering. The quilted fabric is cosy too.

When I went out I wore a black leather jacket and black oversized knitted hat with the outfit and I must admit, I loved the look! I thought white might be difficult in winter but it really isn’t!
Would you wear white in winter? Let me know.
