It’s perfectly fine to wear your white dress with opaque tights, leggings or dark heels. Ginnifer Goodwin, for example, wore black tights and shoes with her white Camilla and Marc dress while Kim Kardashian wore the same dress sans tights. Goodwin looked far edgier and gave the dress the full attention it deserved. Derek Lam’s white dresses were all paired with black stilettos as they strutted down the runway last September. Just remember that tank tops and sundresses are not cold weather appropriate!
This combination is a clever way to slim the figure, using the starker whites to emphasize your best assets and the darker shades on the areas you want to conceal.
Layering the different tones adds depth and is an easy way to pull this off. Blake Lively worked this look, wearing a stone colored sheepskin cape over her cream knit dress, brown tights and boots. Copying Lively and teaming the look with a pair of tan or dark boots and throwing on a pair of shades for the sun’s frosty glare, will give the look a touch of coziness and cool.
