How to wear white in the winter? In fashion, white is like a raw canvas for an artist before he begins to work and gives free rein to his own creativity.
It’s a color that evokes brightness and illuminates your face. It is, above all, a color that offers many possibilities, but also reminds you of past things.
In summer, it’s a natural choice for clothing: a color that can make us look brighter, keep us cool from the heat and enhance our tan.
In winter, white is perhaps a less obvious choice, but fortunately in recent years it has become a new winter classic, especially in its warmer and slightly softer nuances that we generally include under the concept of “winter white”.
Wearing white in winter is also a natural choice: it’s the color of snow, ice, the soft fur of some animals, of the cold reflections of the light that are so characteristic for the cold season. And it’s also a safe style choice that can be incredibly chic, especially in the colder months.
But how to match white with other colors in our winter looks?
1 – COZY & OVERSIZED
In winter, white is at its best with soft materials and fabrics and in comfy and cozy garments: an oversized shirt, for example, a sweater dress, but also a coat with a fur collar are always winning choices.
2 – TOTAL WHITE
White is a symbol of purity and infinite possibilities and, above all, it’s a color that suits many of us. For this reason, you can maximize its impact by wearing a total white outfit.
3- TEXTURE IS EVERYTHING
An ultra chic option for winter white is to play with different textures, fabrics and materials, but always remaining on the same shade of color. Try woven mesh and embroidered and textured fabrics that, mixed together, will always look very elegant.
4 – WITH BLACK
The most important rule: limit yourself to few black touches and don’t overdo it: one or two accessories maybe – shoes and a belt for example – a nice bag or a single statement necklace.
5 – WITH NATURAL FABRICS (SUEDE, LEATHER, FUR ETC.)
White is a well-present color in nature, especially in winter. For this reason, it can be combined very well to other natural fabrics, from suede to (faux) fur or leather, felt and precious metals.
6 – WITH OTHER NEUTRALS
White lends itself wonderfully to any combination with other neutral shades. My favorite choices are the whole range of beige shades, but also camel, grey and taupe. The elegance of these color combinations speaks for itself.
7 – ADD A TOUCH OF RED
The important thing is that the white color remains dominant. But the addition of a touch of red, maybe in a handbag like in this beautiful outfit worn by Victoria Beckham, adds a sophisticated touch.
8 – WITH PASTEL SHADES
White looks beautiful also combined with some colder pastel shades, like some sorbet colors, for example.
9 – WITH A SPARKLING TOUCH
But how to wear white in the winter holidays? During the cold season, white is also a very popular color for the holidays and can be wonderfully paired with brighter and sparkling accents.
Going beyond the gold-white pairing (which can be beautiful too if you choose a slightly warmer white), white looks very elegant with any metallic fabric, but also with silver jewelry. A total white outfit paired with some statement pieces made of big, transparent white crystals can look incredibly sophisticated.
