From all appearances the moratorium on wearing white clothing after Labor Day has been lifted. You can now go out wearing white in fall and winter without worrying that the fashion police might accost you and charge you with an unpardonable fashion crime. Although, you probably could have gotten away with wearing a white sweater on the grounds that it’s a sweater. But a white sweater with white pants? Once upon a time that would have gotten you some looks from ladies who are sticklers for fashion rules. But these days you can deck yourself out in white from head to toe and probably only out of touch ladies who didn’t get the memo that white after Labor Day is okay for the moment will give you a look as if you’ve committed some heinous crime for which you deserve a trip to the guillotine.

How to wear your cream Chloé Mohair And Angora-blend Sweater

Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was seen out and about last week wearing her cream Chloé Mohair And Angora-blend Sweater with white Paige jeans, nude Manolo Blahnik pumps and a Chloé Clare medium leather shoulder bag. You can copy her look exactly or take inspiration from it. This is mostly a duplication. The jeans are from Golden Goose but are white and similarly styled to Rosie’s Paige Denim jeans. The shoes are from Sergio Rossi and white as opposed to Rosie’s nude Manolo Blahniks.

To buy or not to buy

If I had Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s supermodel millions I would definitely buy this sweater. Why not? I’d be able to afford it without needing to be concerned about spending money. But I don’t have her kind of money. I can’t afford this sweater. I do like it so if I come across an affordable alternative on a day when I have a few dollars to spare I’ll buy the affordable alternative. $1,795.00 for a sweater seems a bit exorbitant though. I guess a sweater knitted from mid-weight mohair and angora is a super special sweater? Probably because I’ve never been up close and personal with a sweater knitted from mid-weight mohair and angora I can’t appreciate that such a sweater is so special that a $1,795.00 is perfectly reasonable.
