29 Perfect Ways to Wear White This Winter
If you live somewhere with four seasons, you’re likely already bracing yourself for winter. Crisp temperatures, early sunsets, and an overall chill quickly take hold once these months arrive, but your wardrobe doesn’t have to reflect this gloominess. In fact, what better time to infuse your outfits with a poppy print or, in today’s case, winter white than when you need it most?
Though you probably shouldn’t wear your summer whites when it’s cold (i.e., lace dresses, eyelet blouses won’t work), there are still plenty of offerings in cold-weather fabrics and textures. From street style to fashion editorials to runway looks, see below for 29 inspiring ways to wear winter white this season, and then head over to our editor-curated boutiques to pick up a frosty jacket or dress for your wardrobe.
