White after Labor Day? Why, of course! Once a faux pas, the fashion world is now endorsing this shade all year long, especially when the temps drop.
Winter white looks amazingly refreshing in a sea of navy, black and gray that traditionally accompany cold-weather wardrobes. We’ve got 3 must-have winter white looks to challenge summer's “no white after Labor Day” rule. Follow our simple do’s and don’ts to wear white right this season.
Keep the look clean with a few well-chosen pieces. As the saying goes, less is more. This last outfit proves you can totally look hot…even when it’s not. Start off with your base layers: a ribbed white top with serious lace-up action and leggings (a must for every girl’s closet!). Elevate your look with black shooties with a great heel and sleek gold details. Heading out? This winter white faux fur coat has cozy chic written all over it.
Instead, go for contrasting shoes, like a pop of bright cherry red or wear-again neutrals like these over-the-knee boots in a rich taupe. Some of you may ask, “White skinnies? In winter?” Oh, yes. Trust us: these will quickly become your go-to jeans. White skinnies are so versatile – they go with practically every color imaginable. Perfect for getting max style mileage. “Winterize” your white jeans by pairing with a deeper color, like this olive sweater.
An easy trick to wearing winter white – mix with interesting fabrics and textures. Here, we combined a ribbed pencil skirt with a flowy top. Finish with a fab biker jacket for a touch of tough-girl edge, plus some head-turning booties and tights. Remember: a pencil skirt’s job is to accentuate your curves. So look for fabric with some structure, yet is stretchy enough to create a smoothing effect.
Whatever way you wear it, winter white is a fantastic way to brighten up dreary winter days (and nights!).
