All right, we’re officially debunking the outdated “no white after Labor Day” rule. A touch of white adds an instant freshness to an otherwise dull winter wardrobe. There are so many ways to go about winter white dressing, and with a variety of shades to choose from, your outfit options are endless. Start out easy by swapping your dark-wash denim for a pair of jeans in bone, or top off your look with some bright white accessories. Take it to the next level by rocking a head-to-toe white look with a statement coat, or style your favorite summertime maxi with winter-approved pieces. Here are a dozen winter white looks that prove that no matter how you choose to style the shade, it’ll beat the all-black looks everybody else is wearing.
White is a neutral, just like beige and black, so it shouldn’t be limited to just one season. A great pair of white high-waisted trousers are timeless. Style them with a beige coat, black t-shirt, black boots, and a silk scarf for a classic look.

I love an oversized white blazer, regardless of the season. If you’re worried about looking too summery, style it with a pair of leather pants to give it that winter feel.
