If you’re still a believer in the “No White after Labor Day” rule, I’d love to know what else you’re still holding on to. Beanie Babies? Limited Too apparel? Neopets? (if it’s Neopets, send me your password). This rule is so archaic, and actually comes from a time before air-conditioning where wearing white was the best way to stay cool, and once the seasons changed it was unreasonable to wear white in fall storms. We now have air-conditioning and climate change, which means it’s time to retire this rule. Come with me to the light side in How to Wear Winter Whites.
Head-to-toe white is my favorite way to wear this trend, with white jeans and a white chunky sweater like this look from Farmhouse Chic. We recommend adding simply gold jewelry and neutral booties to allow for the monochromatic white to steal the spotlight in this look. Or, for a more casual look, skip the jewelry and add a pair of white sneakers.
If monochromatic white isn’t for you, add in shades of cream and beige to create a neutral look perfect for colder temperatures. We love how this look is styled from PopSugar.
Black and white is always a great option, whether it be film, your insta filter, or clothing. Start with all white basics, then add contrast with black pieces. We love adding a black belt with a black jacket (can be a coat or edge it up with a leather jacket!) and completing the look with black booties.
Play with pattern on a white base and add neutral or matching knee-high boots for a completely effortless but completely chic winter white look.
And there you have it! Our favorite ways to wear Winter White. Welcome to the light side!
