Five carefully picked photo-shoots to help you decide which path you wish to take with your winter styling.
Warm and bright? Cool and chic? Green? Red? Black? This chilly season may give you a lot of choice when it comes to potential colour schemes, but how do you know which one is best for you? That is where we come in. With a combination of classic tones, unique items and an undeniable winter threat throughout [each with their own twist], we’ve put together 5 different mood-boards to refine your choices and give you inspiration through these dark, cold months. But don’t let us limit you, mix and match the pieces that you see to your heart’s content and, if you’re feeling especially brave, simply take these with a pinch of salt and choose the items you want from scratch. Here at Whitehouse, we adore individuality and the ability to look outside the box, with nothing being too far fetched for our tastes.
‘Though bright colours aren’t usually a part of winter mood-boards, this magnificent shoot threw convention out the window to create something warm, enticing and, ultimately, spectacular.’

Which mood-board were you drawn to the most? Though we love the vibrant and enticing colours of the first style, we would probably end up choosing the last board, simply because the final effect is so timeless. There are so many combinations you can choose from during this season, so why not break the usual chain of monotony and try something new!
