When it comes to piecing together a wardrobe that is versatile and timeless, I’ve learned one major rule: invest in the right white essentials. I wear the crisp, clean color year-round and find that its a neutral I gravitate towards consistently. It connects the dots for me in some ways when I start getting creative with my options. So I figured I’d dissect the pieces that get pulled out the most, and talk about the ones I’m coveting. You can also hop over to my “shop” section which currently has a whole section of winter whites.

So here we go:

  1. A chunky white/cream sweater.
  2. Single sole pumps.
  3. A well fitting t-shirt—anything from Wilt, James Perse or T by Alexander Wang.
  4. Cross-body bag or clutch.
  5. Borrowed from the boys, a white oxford (I like mine oversized, so typically I get a men’s size small).

And because you know I’m always shopping, some finds I’m currently coveting…
