Yes, the crocus is blooming, but let’s cast our fashion minds forward to the next time the weather turns cold and the leaves go out in a blaze of glory. Winter whites, darlings: cool, creamy, and sophisticated, they’re a defiant shot of light in the midst of a long, dark season.

We’re not bothering with a “YEA or NAY” vote on this one. The very idea is absurd; as if to ask, “The Little Black Dress: YEA or NAY?” Winter white is always a YEA, no question about it. Instead it’s time for you to whip out your imaginary Gold Cards and do some imaginary shopping. May we suggest the Rachel Zoe? Or that Blumarine jacket, which is fierce as shit? Or perhaps that crisp, structured Valentino coat? We’ll hold your purse. Go try it on.
