THE WHITE STUFF

swatch

Some people say white is not a color. I would beg to differ. White is very pale color having its moment. You can now wear it all year round. I think this is a good thing. In fact the winter windows at Bergdorf Goodman are full of white-winter-wonderfulness.

I would not mind some white under my Christmas tree.

My friend Bobby Levithan has a uniform. He always wears white jeans. In the summer he wears a dark t-shirt, in the winter he wears a big chunky black, or grey sweater. He always looks divine. I had lunch with him the other day, I wore white jeans and a black sweater. I loved it.  Perfect winter outfit. But whatever you do do not wear a light top, you will look like you wandered out of summer.
