Once there was a rule that you can only wear white in summer, but these days are over. I love winter white and it’s a color that suits most skin & hair tones. Currently I am into gold fine jewellery pieces and these go very well with all shades of white. It’s just such a stylish combination, don’t you think (see image below)?! In this post you can find some suggestions for winter white fashion pieces and delicate gold jewellery (which have the perfect size to fit in Christmas stockings…).
Everlane is one of my favorite shops for good basic items such as t-shirts, cardigans and shirts. I love their philosophy about transparancy: “Know your factories. Know your costs. Always ask why.”. They recently hosted an open studio event where customers could see and try out their collection while enjoying drinks and snacks. These images were taken that day by Luke Beard.
One of my favorite Scandinavian fashion brands is Hunkydory. I love the style of their clothing pieces, which is a casual mix of a feminine, Scandinavian-ethnic style. Here are some of my favorite items from their Fall & Winter collection. Above: chunky ribbed knitted sweater combined with stretch leather leggings.
This leopard print coat from Emerson Fry is just stunning! The limited run 1960′s style coat is based on piece from Emerson Fry’s vintage archive. Stylish but with a twist, it can be worn with boots or with heels. Love it!
With autumn approaching it is time to stock up some warm scarves and cardigans! The latest addition (but already a favorite!) to my wardrobe is a cardigan from Dutch label Coisa. It is made of 100% merino and knitted delicate so it is super soft and comfortable!. As merino wool keeps you cool in the summer and warm during the colder season the cardigan is a versatile piece to have. Coisa is all about highly individualistic, funky scarves and shawls that are timeless, practical and crafted from the highest quality materials. Each knitted item is made from the finest Italian yarns and produced in limited numbers. Coisa owner Kim: ‘Comfortable scarves and shawls without frills or fanfare and in striking colors. Timeless items that we know will bring you years of enjoyment and durability. Owing to the finest textiles of the knitwear, our products are luxuriously soft on the skin’. Good to know, all items are manufactured in small studios in Portugal, The Netherlands, Turkey and Belgium, where they strictly adhere to responsible production and excellent working conditions. All Coisa items are reasonably prices (119 EUR for the cardigan) but Coisa kindly offers a 10% discount to readers of The Style Files.
