As I've already said in my previous posts, this will be the season of intense and sensual colors like the passional red, the glamorous green, the timless black and the warm brown in their every shades. But, for those of you that don't like dark colors, neither in winter, the fashion world proposes for f/w 2012-13 a valid alternative: white.

For several years, white is one of the main colors of winter and summer collections. Neutral colors par excellence, synonymous of innocence and purity, white will dominate, also this season, our wardrobe, from optical to milk white, giving it an icy but soft allure also to most bold outfits. A true classic of season, proposed by brands like Prada, Alexander McQueen and Jason Wu in the fw 2011-12 collections, this year is proposed, among the others, by Valentino, Blumarine, Emilio Pucci and Yves Saint Laurent.

I like white so much, even if it's one of those colors with a double face: rigourous but also aggressive on a basic outfit with linear and clean cuts, more innocent and romantic on outfits with soft fabrics and flowing shapes. But you have to be careful: even if it's so delicate and nice, it's not suitable to everyone. You have to have a lean and slender phisyque, to exalt the characteristics in the best way. Unfortunately you know, not everyone are so lucky to born with the physical of Naomi Campbell... My fashion tip? you can wear white, playing with accessories, colors and prints! But be careful to not overdo: the risk to look like the ice cream man lies in wait. If you don't like a total white look, here some examples of possible combination to wear:
|White with colors - Miu Miu's polyvore|
|Like the morning dew tha - Gothicity's polyvore|
|White and Orange - Maadu's polyvore|
If you are a white lover, here some low cost options proposed by brands like Zara, H&M, Promod and Topshop.
What do you say about it? Are you ready to be conquered by the soft touch of white?
