Traditionally, wearing white after Labour Day was considered a fashion faux pas.
To celebrate this white-hot trend, Rogers is having a Winter White Event, featuring up to $100 off select white devices from Samsung, BlackBerry, Nokia, LG and HTC for a limited time.
Q: Wearing white in winter: Fashion fail or win?
A: Wearing white is always a win! Not too many people dare to wear it since it’s known to do no justice for your figure, and it’s easier to get dirty. However, I feel that individuals need to be more daring and give it a try, because rocking a white outfit once in a while can really make you stand out.
Q: In your opinion, does fashion influence our technology choices? How?
A: Fashion definitely influences our technology choices. The way I see it, someone who works at, let’s say Vogue or Elle … you’ll most likely see them with an iPhone or even a BlackBerry (in their hand). At the end of the day, it comes down to whether or not you’re a “brand” person. If you’re one who buys most things brand related, then you’ll most likely have an iPhone, a Samsung Galaxy or a BlackBerry in your hands.
Q: What do you think makes someone choose a particular colour smartphone?
A: We all know the typical “pink is for girls and blue is for boys,” but with phones, from what I’ve seen, guys lean more towards devices in the colour black, whereas girls lean towards white phones. But again, it also depends on the person’s personality and their personal preferences.
Q: Have you ever changed the look of your phone with a skin or case so that it matched your outfit?
A: Never! But, that’s only because I buy cases that I know will go with any outfit I wear. It would bother me so much if I was wearing something and my phone’s case clashed with it. It basically ruins your look. The best advice I can give to those who also want their phones to pair well with their outfits is, although they’re hard to turn down, don’t purchase a million phone skins or cases. Pick ones that look great and you know will go with most, if not all of your outfits.
Q: If someone has a white smartphone, what does it say to you about their sense of style?
A: I have a white smartphone and I picked it because the colour stood out. So, I guess it just says the person prefers brighter shades when it comes to styling their outfits.
