When it comes to ultrachic outfits this time of year, Winter white is one of our favorite formulas. Every time, the result is clean, crisp, and super polished in the form of knits, tailored separates, and dresses. The thing about head-to-toe white, cream, or ecru, though? It can be stressful (coffee spills and food stains are a too-real reality). To rid you of said stress, icy pastels are a sweet color trend to try as an alternative this Fall and Winter. A trend we've incorporated into the latest POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's via superpretty sweaters like the POPSUGAR Fluffy Pointelle Sweater ($40, originally $50).
Riffing off the concept of Winter white, our Content Director of Fashion and Shop Hannah Weil McKinley styled the open-weave knit with a pair of tailored white pants and punctuated her outfit with modern accessories in light, neutral colors. The result? A sweet, sophisticated, and superfeminine look for the office.
We also love this outfit as an unexpected take on holiday dressing (believe it or not, you don't have to wear red and green, sequins, or metallics to every function). In place of the tan sandals, try a pair of festive heels in gold, silver, or rose gold. Then, sub the cute coin necklace for chunky gold or rhinestone jewelry for a bigger statement.
