How to Wear a White Coat in Winter

Hi Ladies, I can’t let winter pass by without talking about one of the prettiest and classiest looks this time of year – Winter White!

White is fresh and bright- a no-brainer to wear in the hot summer, but it can look exquisite when cold and crisp outside. My white winter coat is proof of that! Similar here, too. Similar sweater here.

I wasn’t looking for a white coat, but this hooked me immediately.

It’s an unlined, lightweight wool-blend coat that’s perfect for layering. I like to think of it as a long blazer or a light jacket because if you live in the Northeast, it’s not warm enough to walk around during winter. For northerners, it’s more of a car coat – the type of thing you would throw on if you get in the car and go straight out to a restaurant or a friend’s house for dinner.

It’s excellent for milder climates or when transitioning into spring. For example, it’s ideal for now, when it’s starting to warm up, and you don’t want to wear an oversized heavy coat, but you need something. I’m showing it here with this pretty pink sweater ( similar) and burgundy velvet jeans. This white winter women’s coat has a feminine look, and the pink and red make it extra so.

Of course, my pink Kate Spade bag ( similar) goes perfectly with this look! It’s so ladylike. My favorite suede Michael Kors booties add a glam touch.

This beautiful coat has a lovely, rounded cocoon shape and also looks sophisticated worn over your shoulders. I’ve been wearing it with the sleeves rolled up to look more casual, but you don’t have to.

This white, like all winter whites, is softer than summer white. It’s more flattering this time of year when we look pasty compared to the summer. How do you like my Presleigh earrings? They’re from Kendra Scott, my favorite jewelry designer, and they’re gold love knots!

You get a better look at my cute sweater here. It’s got an artsy ombre effect, which is very flattering with my winter white coat.

This coat will work well for me in March when I’m traveling. I find the weather so unpredictable these days that I must take some light coats, just in case. I have a couple of conferences to attend, and since this coat is so light and soft, I can roll it up and tuck it in my suitcase.

Winter White Outfit 2 – Parka

Cozy up this winter in one of the most popular coats of the season, a snowy white, puffy parka. Layer it with a sporty, chunky, ivory cable knit sweater, off-white lug sole, shearling booties, and a stone-white bucket bag. Don’t be afraid to throw in some black; These black leggings look chic with white. Vanilla knit gloves and these white stone earrings polish off what I’m calling a stylish alpine winter white look.
