The Key to Wearing Winter White

I remember the days when I anecdotally followed style “rules” like no white after labor day and felt like I had to match my jewelry to my jacket and purse hardware. For me, you can get away with anything you want, especially winter whites with a little confidence and keeping a couple ideas in mind:

Mix Textures

I can’t remember when and why I snagged these white pants, but they’re definitely more summery and I’ve only ever worn them in the winter. I styled them with a thick sweater and suede jacket to add a little texture and make it more seasonally appropriate. And on a 40 degree weather day when you’re used to zero degree weather, it felt like summer to me!

Go for Contrast or Subtle Tones

I love a classic black and white look, but what I love about this particular outfit I styled are the subtle neutral tones instead of the sharp contrast. Greys, tans and camels paired with white is one of my favorite combinations any time of the year, but especially during the winter season. Just feels fresh AF.

Add a Pop of Color or Print

I was on the hunt for a new pair of snakeskin ankle boots and these were shipped to me just in time to consider them for this look. I was at odds with what shoes to wear since the ones I liked were too cold for the weather. I originally wanted to wear mules, but with the amount of snow and slush, it’s just not possible in Michigan this time of year. And I think this statement bootie helps elevate a more basic, relaxed look.

Shop a Similar Look

I found this pair of Everlane wide-leg cropped pants that I want in color bone. I like this style a little better than what I’m wearing. Just $68! I couldn’t find this exact sweater but a very similar version is available at Nordstrom and is 40 percent off. The suede jacket in coffee bean is still available and is easily one of my closet staples. Full outfit details at the bottom of the post!
