The question used to be, Can you wear white in winter? Now the question is, how?
Winter white outfits are more popular than ever. They’re chic, classy, and modern. But how do you put one together without looking like you are stuck in summer? Here’s how to wear white in winter, plus some easy winter white outfits that you can copy to get you started.
There are no hard and fast rules for creating white winter outfits, but a few things make it easier to get a great result. For example:
- Stay away from stark white, which looks more summery. Try off-white, ivory, or creamy white instead.
- Choose thicker, heavier white fabrics like denim, wool, and knits instead of cotton and linen.
- Layer your winter whites for a more cold-weather look. Use varying shades of white with different textures or…
- Mix winter whites with neutrals like gray, camel, brown, black, or muted pastels for a soft, wintry look.
Here are three white winter outfits that are right on trend.
Winter White Sweater Dress
This creamy, winter-white sweater dress is a striking look this year. It is exquisitely paired with nude booties and a luxe, textured, brie-colored bag. The pale pink scarf adds a hint of warmth but keeps the outfit reading winter white. Gold hardware on the bag and gold wire drop earrings add a regal vibe to this winter white sweater dress.
Winter White 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.
Winter White Pants and Sweater
Here’s a pretty winter white outfit that is relaxed and lovely around Christmastime. Wear a pair of cropped, sand-colored vegan leather pants with a soft, white ribbed sweater. Add taupe suede booties, a caramel bag, and lacy gold earrings. See how all these items have a lot of texture? This helps draw the eye in and keeps a white winter outfit from looking flat.
Winter White Coat
If a head-to-toe winter white outfit is not for you, then even just one white piece can give you a winter white vibe. For example, the milky white coat I shared last year looks beautiful, worn with burgundy jeans and a pink sweater. Winter white also works well with animal print, like a pair of leopard jeans worn with a big chunky, winter white sweater.
