Ask Shopbop: Winter Whites


Look 1: Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater, Vince leather pants, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag. Look 2: Rebecca Minkoff moto jacket, Rag & Bone/JEAN denim. Look 3: 10 Crosby Derek Lam top, 10 Crosby Derek Lam skirt.

I love the idea of wearing white well into winter. How can I keep my look season appropriate?

Never a group to follow the rules, the fashion set has long since abolished the “no white after Labor Day” law. But as the temperatures dip, there are a few things to keep in mind. The key to pulling off winter white is to anchor your look in heavier fabrics and rich textures—your lightweight dresses in airy fabrics are best left for summer. Layering pieces of leather, tweed, and heavy knits give the light color a more roughed-up, winter feel. Finally, avoid pairing white with other pastels. Contrast colors like graphic black, saturated eggplant, and luxe oxblood keep the look seasonal.
