How to wear white in winter
Published 25 January 2017 by Kyri Levendi
We throw the fashion rules out of the window!
There are a lot of rules around wearing white – you can't wear it to a wedding unless you're the bride and you’re probably best staying away from it if you’ve got messy little ones. But while wearing white is naturally more of a summer trend, there's no reason why you can't wear it at any other time of the year.
White can be a great colour to build an outfit around and it doesn't have to be costly either. To prove this, we've put together three different outfits for a number of occasions, and each outfit costs no more than £40.*
1. Knitted jumper, H&M, £12.99
2. Print skinny jean, Primark, £15
3. Black point boot, Primark, £12
In the winter, the easiest way to wear white is on a jumper. This knitted one is not your average staple – it features detailing on the neck and hem, and finishes with flared sleeves. You can pair a jumper like this one with a pair of statement jeans – this tattoo print pair are a bargain at £15.
Complete the look with a pair of black point boots – they look great worn with jeans but are versatile enough for you to wear with a skirt or a dress. This entire look comes in just under budget at £39.99.
1. Frilled cotton blouse, H&M, £12.99
2. Cigarette trousers, H&M, £12.99
3. Velvet slipper shoes, Primark, £10
Looking to update your work wardrobe? Why not try a white blouse? This frill one is a new take on a classic design and would look chic paired with trousers or a skirt. Cigarette trousers in particular would go nicely with this top.
On your feet, you could wear this pair of grey velvet slipper shoes. The shoes only have a small heel so should be comfortable enough and you'll look on trend wearing velvet too – you can find out how to wear a velvet dress in our blog.
This complete outfit comes to just £35.98.
1. Crinkle dress, Tesco F&F, £12.50
2. Clutch bag, Primark, £5
3. Pointed stiletto heel, Primark, £12
Heading to a family party or christening this winter? This white dress could be ideal for your special occasion. The lightweight dress features a loose fit design and a semi-sheer crepe finish – and you could always cover your shoulders with a blazer if it's nippy outside.
This pair of grey stiletto heels could be a good match and this clutch bag fits in perfectly with the neutral tones of the outfit. You can recreate this look yourself for just £29.50 – and you'll be able to wear it in spring too!
