7 Best Tips on How to Wear White in Winter
There was a time when people avoided wearing white after Labor Day—it started in the nineteenth century as a way for the upper class to separate themselves from the working class. But some rules are meant to be broken—in fact, there is nothing chicer than seeing a woman impeccably dressed in White during the Winter months. And if done correctly, it is one of the quickest and simplest ways of achieving a polished and clean look with minimal effort. So today, we are sharing How to Wear White in the Winter.
There are many options for those who want to look stylish in white, from chic outerwear to the coziness of a sweater dress [wearing white year round is no longer a fashion faux pas]. Getting dressed during the colder season, we tend to rely on natural tones, but why not add a pop of white to the traditional black, beige, and brown for a fresher look? My over-the-knee white boots are one of my go-to during the colder months, and I adore a white-on-white monochromatic look.
The A|W 22 runways from Milan to Paris presented emerging trends of white color palettes. So it is no surprise that even those who follow the rule of not wearing white after Labor Day is swayed by the white tulle dresses by Jacquemus.
Nicolas Ghesquière displayed the flexibility of pairing staples-blazers, scarves, and cardigans. At the same time, McCullough and Hernandez flaunted a new creative edge with timeless black and white pieces. All can be used as a Style Inspiration.
Looking for inspiration on how to wear white in Winter? Keep reading. Here we unveil seven of our best tips on how to wear white during the Winter.
1. Winternal Black and White
Black and White is my favorite color combination—black tops work well with white bottoms and vice versa for a timeless look.
Using black accessories such as belts, scarves, statement necklaces, and clutches instantly elevates a simple white outfit but be sure to limit yourself to only a few black touches—be mindful not to overdo it. For example, try a black belt over a white slouchy outfit for an immediate upgrade, or highlight your waistline. Or a pair of black over-the-knee Lexi boots with white denim or trousers for a no-fuss, quick, chic outfit. Maybe a nice black clutch or a statement necklace with your white slip dress for a dinner date.
2. Accessorize with a touch of Red
Dressed in all white and do not have a white handbag nearby?
Accessorizing with bold colors is the ideal way to emphasize the overall look of your white outfit, but it is essential to keep white as the dominant color. Contrast with a bit of Red to boost the vibes during the colder season. Red is my power color, so adding a red clutch or belt makes me feel both polished and powerful.
3. Break the Monotone with White and Muted Hues
White comes in many shades widening the scope of redefining your winter style statement. Several neutral palettes range from creams to off-whites, giving you a nice variety while shopping for white winter clothes.
If you have a pair of beige winter booties, wear them with your white jeans and a cream oversized trench coat.
4. Layer Up
Layered clothing is about the flexibility to wear multiple pieces that look good and warm. So this Winter, ditch the colors and layer up in gorgeous shades of whites.
Subdued tints like khaki, grey, beige, peach, tan, salmon, and ocean blue are excellent for layering beneath a white shearling coat, bomber jackets, et cetera.
Boss and Louis Vuitton’s ready-to-wear Autumn 2022 collections are the best runway inspiration for layered ideas.
5. Pair White Pieces with Prints
White denim or oversized trousers looks incredible with printed tops. The timeless animal prints are kind of a classic. No? And couples nicely with White. Try black and grey abstract prints and camo patterns with white pants for a bit of variation.
6. Get Cozy
The colder months are all about comfort and coziness, which means oversized pieces that are chic and cozy. White is flattering and is at its best in soft material and fabric. Think of an oversized shirt, a comfy sweater dress, a full-length cardigan, or a coat with a faux fur collar.
7. Metallics and Sequins
Nothing beats the beautiful pairing of White with brighter and sparkling accents, especially during the festive season. Beyond the coupling of White and gold—I love to pair white with metallic fabrics; it is elegant and makes an incredible statement. From fringe-cut dresses to micro miniskirts, you can wear anything in White to get the perfect party looks this holiday season.
