23 Winter-White Outfits You Haven’t Considered Yet
Wearing winter whites can be daunting, and not just because you’ll stand out from the seasonal sea of black that’s typical this time of year. Whether it’s because you’re simply scared to get your clothes dirty or you fear your pieces are too lightweight, it’s natural to want to ease into a full-on monochrome moment. That’s why we’ve curated outfit ideas that will encourage you to layer effortlessly.
Whether you’re styling an all-white long-sleeved dress with your new leather knee-high boots, looking to add warmth and dimension with a puffer coat, or keeping it casual by dressing up your sweatpants, these tips will prove useful no matter the occasion. Don’t knock the white-on-white ensemble until you’ve tried it. The bright hue is sure to bestow you with newfound confidence.
Ahead, read about complementary shades and accent colors for your winter whites and learn how to distinguish which pieces might be considered too skin-baring for a night out in the cold weather due to design details or fabrics.
Winter Whites vs. Summer Whites
While your summer separates might be skin-baring (think: an off-the-shoulder minidress or a button-down that doubles as a swimsuit cover-up), winter whites are all about thick and cozy wardrobe essentials. Even though you’re dressing in monochrome from head to toe, you can play with textures and tones to add volume to your outfit, so it has dimension and also keeps you warm.
Which Colors Go With Winter Whites
Winter whites go best with other neutral tones such as oatmeal, khaki, off-white, ivory, chocolate, and caramel or blue-gray pieces that accent your look without taking it over the top. Stay away from bold neons or other flashy shades that compete with the brightness of your whites. They’re surprisingly eye-catching to begin with.
