    Vested interest

    Balance a cropped white sweater and a worn-in white vest with a pair of oxblood skinnies. Crisp kicks with printed paneling anchor the look. Pull it all together with a neutral bag and similar exotic pattern (try python).

    One surefire way to work the trend? Go head-to-toe. Pair an oversized silky blouse with white skinny jeans, and take it to the next level with accessories that call on one bold hue. Electric blue quickly raises the temperature of an icy white look.

    Play with texture. Romantic white lace meets the ornate sequin, dressing up your favorite tee (extra credit if the tee has texture, like boucle, shown here!). Play into the drama with accessories in a soft, feminine hue. Temper the sweet with a touch of metallic.
