Even if you’re not walking down the aisle, white is a color that will get you up-to-date and a lot of thumbs up for spring. High end designers are making it obvious that white is the color of the season. White is also the color of purity and cleanness, unless you're from China. But, any way you look at it, white is a color that goes beautifully with sun kissed skin and every bright, bold color that comes along in spring. Let’s blossom and go white!

Bow down to these sexy white Take a Bow gloves. Imagine driving in the a.m. with a pair of white leather gloves that will keep your hands warm while looking like a diva in angel disguise. Any cold morning will do, enabling you to wrap your hands in sassy gloves with a bow on the wrist. My initial attraction to the gloves was how chic they are, but with a touch of innocence. I think even a cop would cut you some slack if he gets a glance of these white hand warmers.

If wrapping your hands isn’t enough to keep you warm, try wrapping yourself in this Martha’s Vineyard Jacket. The soft woven fabric is perfect for a chilly day when your outfit needs a nice little twist. Turn any ordinary outfit into a more polished one with this comfortable woven cover-up. The two panels draped over one another is a delicate way to wrap you up. This is a year-round jacket-- wear it as your main cover up in the warm months and under a bigger jacket in the colder seasons. Light and simple, it will go well with everything.

Extravagance is the best way to describe the Elysee Collection Pencil Skirt from White House Black Market. The white pencil skirt with ruffles cascading from one side of the skirt is very classy, making it a work-worthy skirt. Ruffles add a feminine touch to the skirt as well as dimension. You won't have to worry about this skirt wrinkling up in the car or a suitcase because it is wrinkle resistant and washable, making your life a whole lot easier without having to dry clean and iron this skirt every time you want to wear it.

Going white is easy and adds brightness to your look, so shed some light on white this season and you’ll be glistening like the snow.
