Wearing white after Labor Day often gets a bad rap, but when done right, there’s nothing chicer than winter white. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to wear winter white the wrong way! Here’s how to incorporate white into your cold-weather wardrobe like a fashion industry pro…
1. Look for cozy textures. White wool, mohair, cashmere, and cable knits are made to be worn in the winter. White linens and other flimsy fabrics should be left for warmer weather. It’s possible to make white denim work this time of year, but white cords are a safer bet.
2. Go one shade off. Cream and other off-white tones tend to work better in the winter. Reserve bright white for when you’re skin has a bit of a glow to it.
3. Embrace the drama. Pair your winter white ensemble with a red lip or a smoky eye. This will prevent you from looking washed out when your skin tone is at its palest.
4. This isn't a white party. Head-to-toe white is best left for Labor Day. Wear your white a little more sparingly in the winter months.
