I don’t shy away from a little winter white and love adding neutral tones to the look, keeping it soft and clean. This cable knit Chicwish sweater is one of my favorites because of the bubbled sleeves, and since it’s slightly cropped I can pair it with both pants and skirts. Instead of going super girly, I decided to make this an everyday casual outfit that is both cozy and stylish – which in my opinion is the best outcome on a cold winter day. Instead of the usual pointy toe heels, I wanted to bring out my taupe booties for comfort and ease.When it comes to style, I really don’t think you should over think it and just wear what you’re in the mood for. When you feel good in your outfit and especially when it turns out like you imagined, it shows.
The weather is just starting to get chilly over here in Dubai, so I can finally wear my semi-chunky knits and light-weight jackets like this Boohoo shawl collar coat which is super soft and on sale by the way! I have to keep the layers light and breezy because as much as I love winter style, it’s never cold enough for an actual wool coat. The good thing is, I don’t have to worry about getting my bright outfit dirty in the rain or snow. Nothing says winter white like some gold tone accessories and simple rosy makeup to complete the outfit and keep the palette clean. What have you been in the mood for lately, and is winter white one of your favorites too?

There’s one really important point to keep in mind when choosing a sweater, and that’s texture. I’ve taken ones home thinking they would be the perfect ‘cozy sweater’ only to notice they get itchy and uncomfortable after having them on for about 20 minutes. It should be soft and comfortable, but also have a little bit of structure and that is why I fell in love with this one from Mango. When it gets really cold outside I like to layer tanks underneath my sweater to keep my stomach warm and if the sweater is too light you can just see right through the fabric.
Another thing to think about is character. It can oversized, but not so big that you’re floating inside it. I like to go with soft warm tones that flatter my complexion, but I’ll occasionally reach for a deep navy or cool grey. While some sweaters are beautiful in their simplicity, the most thing that catches my eye is the pattern. The herringbone pattern is one of my favorites and with the high neck on this one I knew this would be my favorite cozy sweater. I immediately knew I would pair it with white distressed jeans, nude lace up flats and gold jewelry for this neutral winter inspired palette.
