Around this time of year, I get a bit tired of snow. Although snow is pretty to look at, shoveling loses any appeal after about 10 seconds. And, it’s so cold! But, one thing I never tire of is a collection of winter white fashion essentials. Winter white fashion is my favorite way to combat those “winter blues!”
Classic winter white is a look I have loved for years. Back in college, I had a simple winter white wool dress, long pearls, and ivory pumps — my go-to outfit for dress-up events. When I graduated and got my first job in advertising, a classic winter white suit with a pleated skirt was one of my top choices for meetings with new clients. And these days, I live in a (more casual) fuzzy winter white turtleneck sweater.
The key to making winter white fashion look elegant is to wear only winter clothes. No summer slacks made of cotton. No summer pumps in blinding, Arctic white. And, absolutely no crochet, eyelet, or cutwork!
Think timeless, sophisticated, luxe. According to Glamour magazine, “Keep your white outfit choice elegant as can be with classic trousers, a silk tank, and single-breasted coat. Colorless as white may be, opting for head-to-toe monochrome is a fashion statement all on its own, so—when in doubt—keep your look refined and simple in silhouette.” I personally love white faux fur accessories, white cashmere turtlenecks, and piles of pearls.
Above are a few ideas to get you started. And, with looks this beautiful, I might even say… let it snow!
