How to Style Winter Whites
- Feb 15, 2019
Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? If you’re feeling inspired by the crisp, clean white of winter snow, incorporate the icy look into your seasonal wardrobe. With quality crafted fashion pieces and the right winter white styling tips, you can nail the appearance of a modern snow queen.
Classic Winter White Clothing
Assemble your essential white winter clothing by starting with the basics. Choose a pair of versatile white pants you can dress up or dress down for a variety of occasions. You’ll want pants you can wear with your favorite boots, booties, and even heels. Pair your bottoms with a solid long sleeve white top or classic tank for a chic all-white look from top to bottom.
Warm, Soft Textures
Incorporate textiles that bring a sense of warmth and coziness to the chill of winter white. Even with a full white-out ensemble, you can introduce intricate design elements to give the outfit new dimension. Wear a double layer mesh T-shirt to stay warm and add intriguing texture, or select unique scarves, vests, and sweaters in different knit patterns to enhance the visual intrigue of your look.
Once you have a few staple winter whites, you can mix and match the foundational items with other solid-colored clothing to emulate the color blocking trend. Pair your white pants with a brightly colored sweater or a bold black top for striking visual contrast. Use color and shape to add contrast to neutral white pieces that act as a blank canvas.
If it’s wintertime, chances are you’re going to need a sophisticated coat or jacket to survive the season in style. Top off your white ensembles with bright jackets for an elegant pop of color. For more versatile outerwear you can pair with winter whites as well as the rest of your wardrobe, select a classic black knit jacket that accentuates your silhouette for timeless elegance.
Accenting with Accessories
Accessorizing provides another opportunity to add color, prints, and eye-catching embellishments to your winter wear. Get an extra layer of warmth and express your personal style with luxury scarves. Wrap a knit wool scarf around your neck, accented by a beanie-style hat. Put the finishing touches on your ensemble by adding a touch of glam with your favorite jewelry.
If stark white isn’t quite your style, try the same styling tips with clothes in shades of off-white, cream, and earl grey. While close to white, cream brings a touch of warmth while light grey has a hint of coolness, giving you new tones to play with throughout your white winter wardrobe.
