It may be easy to wrap up in your dark separates at the first sign of cold weather, but there’s nothing as refreshing as styling an outfit full of winter whites. Along with bending the fashion rules, you’ll also stand out in a sea of black, navy and gray. Read on for the definitive guide to wearing the pale neutral shade of the season.
All in One
A white jumpsuit is the perfect way to acquire effortless elegance. In order to make heads turn, take a page out of Gigi Hadid’s book and opt for one with artfully placed cutouts and pair with a sleek ponytail for a cool finished look.
All that Glitters
Jazz up your pale-hued look with a healthy dose of shimmer, like a sequined skirt in gilded tones.
Tailoring is Key
There’s nothing we love more than a perfectly tailored pantsuit for a sophisticated dressed-up vibe. Remember: this isn’t the time to squeeze into something too tight, or wear a size too big. White is the most unforgiving of colours, so it’s key that the fit is impeccable.
Use it as a Clean Canvas
Make the most of the clean white canvas, and style your simple blouse, or dress with graphic outerwear and statement jewelry. Wearing this pale shade is a rare opportunity to rock those eye-catching accessories you’ve been struggling to style. It’s important not to get too carried away. Add a few key pieces- a statement necklace, sunglasses, a colourful bag, but keep the look clean. Less is always more.
Keep it simple:
When in doubt, keep your look simple in silhouette. Don’t get carried away by combining different shapes and styles. A scarf, a knit top and simple trousers is the perfect starting point.
There’s nothing more powerful than a suit, and one in crisp white warrants that you’ll look sharp for any occasion.
Take your white maxi dress into the winter season by layering it up with your favorite jacket or jewel-toned boots.
Wear Contrasting shoes
When going all- white, always stop when you reach your toes. Go bright and bold in cobalt or animal print, or reach for basic black shoes.
