White on White in Winter + Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Style in a Small Town

One question that I get a lot is “how to wear white in winter?” I’ve talked about this a LOT on here, but the old “rule” that you can’t wear white after Labor Day is completely antiquated! That rule does not apply anymore! In fact, my favorite way to wear white in winter is to wear white jeans. I love how a crisp pair of white jeans pops against a darker hue.

Another way to wear white is in your tops, I especially love a white on white in winter look. Can we talk about how amazing the lace detail is on the back of this top?! When I saw it online I fell for the bell sleeves and the detachable necklace, but after seeing the lace detail, I was a goner! I know, pathetic, right!? It’s hard to tell in the pictures but there is also a little slit at the bottom which amplifies its cuteness!

I love all the little details about this top. You could wear it on its own because the bell sleeves are enough of a unique feature or you could pair any vest over it for a completely different look. This is the kind of top that could be worn year-round. It would be super cute in the summer with sandals and distressed denim shorts! I’m definitely taking this with me on a little trip I’m taking in February.
