Where do you stand on white after Labor Day? Personally, I never really understood this look, white looks so dang crisp against the fall colors, why would we make a silly rule to try and ban it?!
My mom might still disagree, but I’m all for it! I’ve learned there’s a few tricks to making your white jeans look appropriate for fall and winter.
P.S. I’m sharing more ways to style white jeans and white pants in my stories today, don’t miss it!
How to Wear White Jeans in Winter
Warm it Up
White can look really stark, but when you pair it with warm neutrals like tans, browns and camels, it quickly looks totally winter appropriate and tones down the white.
Personally, this is my favorite way to style white for winter. It looks soft, warm and cozy and is most definitely all those things. Layer your neutral pieces for a really classic, feminine outfit.
Avoid Bright Colors
To me, bright colors and white just screams summer! And, that’s okay…if it’s summer! But to make your white right for winter, ditch the bold colors and opt for classic neutrals like greys, blacks and tans.
When in doubt, a good monochromatic look always looks so chic! That doesn’t mean that every piece you’re wearing needs to be the exact same shade of white—in fact, I don’t recommend that! Instead, choose varying tones within the same color scheme. Here I stuck with a light tan sweater, a camel coat and then the white pants and I love how it looks.
Bring in Contrast
Another way I love to style white jeans or white pants for winter is to bring in some contrast like blacks. A black sweater and dark booties can help bring in those wintery vibes.
Bring in Wintery Textures & Fabrics
When I think of wintery fabrics, I think of rich things like suede, velvet, calf hair and animal print. It adds so much depth and personality to an outfit that makes someone double take and think, “I love her outfit!”
As you may have guessed, I really love snakeskin this year. These boots have been on my feet non-stop! What I love about them is that I can wear them with warm tones and cooler tones and they look great with both!
Okay, now tell me—which camp are you in?! Team white after Labor Day or Team pack them away!?
