A plaid blanket scarf with winter white

I’m sure many of you already have one, or have at least seen them everywhere. Indoors or out, a plaid blanket scarf could be worn for both its style and warmth.

A chequered scarf is always a nice must-have among the other fashion pieces in the wardrobe – it is comfortable, cozy and very chic. And, a combination with winter white makes for a really a classy look. With a sweater (but not really pure white because of the material), ecru white jeans and a black belt, like in the ones you can see me wearing here, you can be in style to hit off no matter where. The outfit works perfect for a walk, going on a little trip, do some shopping and even at work. You will really look stylish and dressed in a fashion way.

What makes me different makes me beautiful

I have many favourite quotes, but this one from Coco Chanel is in my top ten: „Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself“. That said, I have always believed that being yourself is priceless and it’s what makes you beautiful.

Of course we still have to follow all trends, news and the fashion in general in order to be up to date. But the fashion world is like an endless ocean we must learn to swim in, every season, year, month, week and day.

And what best to fit the winter season than the white, even when it blends into the snow around us. It goes even better with a pair of black boots and fluffy coat, to achieve the always trendy black and white combination. Though high heel boots are not typical for the real snowy winter I like them very much and they make me feel elegant in this outfit, because elegance is not only standing out, but being remembered.

So be you, be different, be yourself!

Adding some winter white

It is still winter but I’m looking so much forward to spring that when adding some winter white to my wardrobe I choose not only winter clothes (like a thick sweater and a cap), but also a short skirt and over-knee socks which would be more suited for a warmer season.

But before taking the challenge of wearing white, you should know that winter white is rarely pure white because of the wool material. It’s often closer to ivory or even slightly grayed out white, like ecru. But do you know – it’s worth it – take the challenge to wear white in your winter outfits, that way you will brighten up the gray cold days.
