Daily Style: Layered in Winter White

 Sweater: Abercrombie & Fitch Tunic:Free People 
Crop Top:Free People Jeans:Paige Denim Boots:Jeffrey Campbell Hat:Free People

From my decor aesthetic to my wardrobe I have always been drawn to the delicacy of ivory and cream. There is a whimsicality and a femininity to these muted hues that color doesn't seem to provide. And while the world outside is coated in a layer of white, I found it fitting to incorporate these soft shades into my wardrobe.

I think the key to pairing several pieces within the same color family is to find a focal point, a piece that will draw the eye and act as the base of the look. When adding layers look for shades that compliment the focal point. In this look I pulled inspiration from the weathered cream lace and polka-dots on the tunic, choosing layering pieces of the same shade. Start with a strong base and the rest will fall into place.

How do you layer your favorite shades?


  1. Love this! I also adore ivory/cream colors :) We just shot a look book using mostly those colors.

  3. Love this ensemble! I love the monochromatic trend, it's something I tend to do quite often, although not too much in the creams and whites! New challenge!


  4. Such a cute outfit! Love all the layers and textures!
