If you haven’t ditched the `no white in winter` style rule by now, this outfit will certainly get you inspired. By mixing different shades of grey, cream and white, you can create a look that’s both modern and clean.
I have to admit when it comes to light colors, my mind also goes to summer… but who wants to wait for the summer to wear their favorite pieces? I don`t! If you`re thinking about trying a winter white outfit, I hope my suggestions will help you nail the look.
1. Play with different shades
It’s all about layering, fit, and combining different shades of white, ecru grey and even beige. Dressing too matchy- matchy would feel a little forced. We`re going for `effortless cool` outfits here… right? ?
2. Use different textures
Leave textures like linen and cotton for the summer. If you`re going to bend the fashion rules by wearing white in the winter, pay attention to the textures. Textures like wool, cashmere, flannel and leather are definitely weather appropriate.
3. Keep the light color scheme going
For a sleek minimal look, choose a pair of light colored shoes. I have to admit I still didn`t find a pair of light colored boots to like, but thank God for sneakers. Not only do I feel super comfy but they make any outfit look so cool.
4. Opt for cropped trousers and skirts.
When the weather turns gray, opt for cropped trousers and skirts. Even though I like to sweep all the floors with my trousers, I understand that people have very different hobbies. ?
5. Invest in a white coat
I know… it`s hard to keep them clean. But they`re definitely making a statement. A white outfit without a light colored coat won`t work. If a white coat is not an option for you, go for a grey or beige one.
6. Try knit co-ords and sneakers
If you feel that a white outfit might be a little too fancy for a laid back day try a comfy knit combo. Wearing an all knit outfit it’s the coolest thing. Check out my knit favorites below.
7. What about white fur?
Don`t even get me started about it. White fur looks so cozy and soft. Choose a fluffy coat or stole and let your inner snow bunny shine. ?
8. Start with a clean slate
Still not sure how to approach the look? Start with a clean white canvas. Style your trousers and simple sweater with your favorite accessories. Think patterned scarves, statement jewelry and hats. And speaking of accessories check out the cool pearl jewelry below. The perfect companion to a white outfit.
