It’s a real possibility that some of you suffer from having extremely pale skin, it’s a struggle. With dark hair and pale skin, it’s often hard to wear certain colors, take black for example, without looking like you rolled off the set of the Addams family. Growing up people would call me Wednesday as in Wednesday Addams — get it, Winter Adams, Wednesday Addams… kids can be so cruel, despite the fact that I did bear a resemblance to the character.
Off topic, but the point I’m trying to convey, is that while black is a go-to color for many people, it’s worthy of two-minutes in the box if it’s being worn as any article of clothing beyond pants. That being said, getting dressed for games, I often wonder why my entire wardrobe consists of the color. Black cardigans, black blazers, black blouses, all articles that I love, but really shouldn’t wear every day.
One color that I do love to wear, but don’t own much of is white. Now, I’m sure you’re wondering why white is a color of choice, but as silly as it is, wearing white makes me feel tan. With a day filled to the brim with commitments, I wanted a no fuss appropriate, but comfortable outfit to get me through it all.
Sometimes back to basics is just what you need. In honor of that sentiments, I went with a simple color scheme and a pop of color.

Media Tip: I don’t know if I’ve used this as a tip before, if I have, I apologize. It’s a tip that saves me every post game. Make sure you have a hair elastic in your bag, there is possibly no greater feeling than wrapping up the day with a ponytail or messy bun for your commute home.
