One of my very favorite styles during the winter is the winter white trend. It’s easiest to start with white jeans as your base, so pull them back out of storage and try these tips for wearing this chic and cozy combination!

1. Wear obvious winter pieces. If you’re wearing cotton or linen, your outfit feels summery. Choose white pieces that are obviously winter pieces, like sweaters, coats, scarves, cardigans, wool hats, and turtlenecks. They’ll automatically make your outfit feel cozy. I chose this pretty oversized sweater from Nordstrom, and I love the button details on the back.

2. Play with various shades of white. Cream, gray, camel, tan, blush….these are all good choices that pair well with crisp white and make them feel more winter-y.

3. Keep your accessories and shoes in the same color family. I like to wear darker shoes, like these gorgeous brown ankle boots from Nordstrom, because the dark piece helps ground the outfit. A pair of gray or brown over the knee boots would look gorgeous with this outfit too.

4. Play with texture. I have a knitted sweater, button details, raw hemmed jeans, a leather bag, and shoes with perforation details. You don’t have to go overboard, but if you have a variety of texture in a monochromatic outfit, it has a lot more interested.

For a dressier look, you could start with a white dress or skirt as a base and add cozy neutral layers like an oversized cardigan or a cream wool coat.

There are so many possibilities with this style. Think you can wear it??

Also I’ve rounded up some of my favorite cozy neutral pieces that would be perfect for those winter white outfits!

    Awesome, as usual. I have this pair of white jeans that I love but I haven’t figured out how to keep them in my fall wardrobe, so thanks for the ideas!
