Get the Look: Winter White

Every Latina knows that fashion rules are meant to be broken. Self-expression is the name of the style game, followed by individuality and confidence. The only rule you should be following: There are no rules.

Wear what feels good and reflects your personal style. Find your own signature look, then mix and match it up to stay fresh and modern. Or, simply take a page out of the playbook of these hot Latinas who—while you were tossing all your lights to the back of the closet or placing them in storage—were being snapped everywhere in post-labor day white.

Want to look white hot yourself this winter? Here's how to carry the trend with panache.

1. GTL - WW1

If you’re gonna break a rule in your 20s, break it boldly. Take Nicole Richie’s lead and unapologetically rock a stark white dress as the centerpiece of your ensemble. Then load up on layers to make the look seasonally appropriate. For the greatest visual contrast, bring on the black via opaque tights and suede boots under, and a fitted mini-motorcycle jacket over. And don’t forget a handful of mismatched bangles and a couple of rings to channel your inner rockstar.

2. GTL - WW2

In your 30s, you wear your sensuality and femininity with grace and comfort so reflect that in your wardrobe choices. Follow the lines of your figure, like Paz Vega. Go for body-conscious, perfectly tailored, crisp white trousers. Accentuate your waist with a belt and elongate your leg with a platform pump. To soften the look, add in browns, taupes and greys. On top, opt for rich fabrics like silk and cashmere that feel heavenly against the skin.

3. GTL - WW3

In your 40s, make powerful clothing choices that speak to your inner-confidence. No one does this better than Jennifer Lopez – and nothing says ‘I mean business’ more than a sharp jacket. So pick up a white fitted blazer in a softer, thicker winter fabric to pop against the foundation of any outfit underneath. When wearing white close this to the face, go for some JLo glow by bronzing and highlighting the cheek and wearing a warm shade on the lip. Oversized shades optional.
