Winter whites! It’s like a palate cleanser for fashion. Crisp, fresh, and so chic!
I love monochromatic looks. They create such great harmonious color combinations and are very pleasing to the eye. To add depth and interest to monochromatic pairings, I love mixing strong elements of prints and textures. This outfit is a symphony of all of my favorites – faux fur, snake print, and soft knit anchored by ivory and gray colors.
Unlike leopard print, I find snake print to be a little intimidating. The rosette pattern on leo prints has a charming floral-like quality, which makes them soft, feminine, and easy to pair with most outfits. On the other hand, snakeskin patterns are quite sharp and pulsating, which makes them more intense and harder to pair with certain looks. Still, I love playing with different patterns and textures. To soften the snakeskin print, I like pairing them with neutral colors and soft fabrics (like faux fur, chunky knits, or delicate silk). 2018 and leading into 2019, snakeskin is the new leopard (as seen from the Zimmermann Autumn/Winter 2018 show to the Gucci Spring/Summer 19 show), so I’m excited to play with this pattern more!
I hope you enjoy this styling and location! Central Park is beautiful this time of the year. Hope you had a great Christmas and happy holidays! Wishing you nothing but the best. The best memories, the best moments, and the best this world has to offer.
