Winter Whites | Textured Roll-Neck Sweater and White Skinnies

Winter whites (skinny jeans and roll neck sweater) - over 40 fashion
After buying this fabulous in the Asos sale and absolutely falling in love with it, I decided to don winter whites and wear it with the white skinnies that I put into storage for some silly reason last winter.

I actually think the sweater (which is not only reduced from £150 to £45 but also incredibly soft) looks better with white than it would have done with black – and I went the whole nine yards with taupe/nude accessories. The La Redoute ankle boots (last worn here) are the perfect colour for an all-white ensemble, especially white skinnies. I can see these boots being my footwear of choice for these jeans over the colder months… watch this space!

I also wore my new Wolf & Moon earrings from Project J that were kindly gifted to me – the style is unlike anything else I own but they are so ‘me’… I love them! They’re very chunky but the clever design (with all the different textures: wood, glitter and glass) makes them quite delicate-looking. They sound heavy but they’re actually as light as a feather.

Are you cosying up in your knitwear yet – or are you sporting winter whites like me? Maybe you’ve found a better bargain than my £150-down-to-£45 sweater… Do share in the comments 🙂

    What a bargain you got there, lovely jumoer. I love white for winter

    • 7 November 2014 / 4:31 pm

      Aww Cherie thank you… seems that everyone loves my red hair with the winter whites!

  8. 4 November 2014 / 4:34 pm

    Your winter whites are looking lovely. I was going to ask about your hair too, but saw your explanation in the comments above. I think that's my favourite bit of this outfit – the contrast between your hair (which is fab) and the brightness of the whites!

    • 4 November 2014 / 5:31 pm

      Thank you Amy! I always forget that my hair adds another colour to my outfit, and yes I agree about the contrast working 🙂

    I love the look with cream. I have a new cream sweater and will try it with white jeans.

    • 4 November 2014 / 5:30 pm

      I think cream and white is very chic Josephine so yes – you should definitely try it! x

  10. 4 November 2014 / 1:18 pm

    I love that sweater. Especially the two different textures from body to arms. Great look:)

    • 4 November 2014 / 1:37 pm

      Doesn't it make it so much more interesting with the two textures, Susan? Thank you my lovely x

  11. 4 November 2014 / 11:28 am

    Catherine, this is one of my favourite looks! Casual yet classy and sophisticated. It is all about the accessories and your earrings are beautiful! I have to check out their collection now…

      There's something about winter whites that does scream "sophistication" isn't there, Annette? The irony is I'm so NOT sophisticated… it's all a front, haha!!! Thanks so much x

  12. 4 November 2014 / 10:51 am

    Thats a lovely jumper. It looks very cosy and warm.

    X x

    • 4 November 2014 / 1:35 pm

      Ohhh it really is, sweetie! Thank you 🙂

  13. 4 November 2014 / 3:08 am

    You look stunning in this look! I would have bought the jumper but they haven't got my size, what a shame because it's a great find!! xx

    • 4 November 2014 / 1:34 pm

      Oh that is a shame, Ingrid! At that price I'm not surprise it's sold out quickly. Thank you hun x

  14. 3 November 2014 / 11:37 pm

    Beautiful look Catherine! I love the neutral colour scheme and especially with the autumnal feel of the background in your photos 🙂

    Take care,
    Daniella xox

    • 4 November 2014 / 1:33 pm

      The background (luckily) was perfect, Daniella!! Thank you so much my lovely x

    I have loved Winter White since waaaaay back in 2003 when I owned the perfect Winter White trousers. I alternated wearing them with a Pearl and seed bead covered WW shell or a long lace WW jacket. Thanks for bringing back sweet memories of outfits past. :o)


    • 4 November 2014 / 1:33 pm

      Aww you're welcome, JJ! ;)) I love the term "The Perfect…" anything 🙂

  16. 3 November 2014 / 10:01 pm

    Love the earrings!

    • 4 November 2014 / 1:26 pm

      Cute, ain't they, Heather?! Thank you x

    • 3 November 2014 / 9:52 pm

      I may just have a full-on winter white and camel outfit post coming up in a week, Donna… well actually I have. For definite! It may just need a little vote from yourself so watch this space! Thank you for your comments xx

  17. 3 November 2014 / 7:12 pm

    Love this neutral and crisp look. There's something about wearing lighter colors in colder weather that I just love. Thanks for the inspiration!


    • 3 November 2014 / 9:51 pm

      You're welcome Brooke – and thank you for your lovely compliments! Here's to winter whites 🙂

    • 3 November 2014 / 9:50 pm

      Martina thank you – you're a sweetheart as always x

  18. 3 November 2014 / 6:17 pm

    My best bargain I think are my £75 to £15 suede boots, or £90 to £40 wool coat! All white looks great on you, I think it's the red hair and glowy skin that sets it off!

    I love the winter white sweater with the winter white skinnies. I would never have put these two together in winter. Great idea. I am confident to wear white now this season, accessorized with tan. You have a new follower! 🙂

    • 3 November 2014 / 9:49 pm

      Thank you Jenny – and welcome to NDaL! I love the fact that you're named White, and I've got you to love the colour white even more :))

    • 3 November 2014 / 9:47 pm

      I don't know why I haven't done it (in the winter) before, Monica! Thank you xx

  20. 3 November 2014 / 5:02 pm

    I love a thick cozy sweater like this one, Catherine! xox

    • 3 November 2014 / 9:47 pm

      I know you do, Patti – I can see you wearing this one and looking fabulous!

  21. 3 November 2014 / 4:23 pm

    Love that all white trend Catherine. Even better with camel acc. How did you do your hair? Love it! xo Sabina @Oceanblue Style

    • 3 November 2014 / 9:45 pm

      Thanks so much Sabina! It was (unfortunately) one of those "aaargh quick I need to put my hair up" jobs… I took the front section up into a sort of quiff and clipped it on top, then (and this is the complicated bit to explain), I got hold of all the hair as if to put it up into a high ponytail. I flipped my head forward, then put one of those big barrette clips across my flipped-forward hair, so that when I flipped my head back again the clip was underneath the "ponytail" – that's why it's all pouffy at the back.

      I hope that makes sense…?!! x
