Perfect Pairings 8

Have your wine and wear it, too

Wine-colored hues are in full force this season, and it’s not just burgundy that has become a fan favorite. Shades of white and blush pinks are showing no signs of slowing down for cooler temps. Softer shades are not just for spring and summer anymore. These grown-up colors are perfect companions to pair with your winter wardrobes and can be very versatile for creating multiple looks.

White

The old fashion rule of “no white after Labor Day” has been put to rest. Keep your white jeans out for winter and wear them proudly. To help ease the summer feel of white jeans, tone down the brightness with darker colors such as gray, camel and burgundy. If you are really daring, put your winter whites together, like this J Crew Turtleneck sweater that is the perfect basic to add to your sweater collection.
