Sprout Sponsored_FINAL

Our verdict is in. White is the new black this season. (And we aren’t the only ones; check out this gorgeous Pinterest board of winter-white runway looks here, and Lucky Mag’s take on the trend). But this angelic color is more than just a passing fancy; white is eternally cool, uberversatile and flattering on any gal when done right.

We’ve curated our white hot and sustainable picks around a watch we think should be in your winter arsenal. Sprout Watches’ corn-resin watch is snow white beautiful, affordable, and low-impact. Corn resin is 99 percent biodegradable, made from a renewable resource, and uses no petroleum (nonrenewable) resources in production since it’s bio-based.
