Winter was made for wearing white. So throw away that old-fashioned rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day and don these luxurious and timeless classics. We’ve picked five of our favorite winter whites from the online shops to get you inspired. From a lovely tote to the essential chunky sweater, these will, we hope, remind you of the beauty of winter white wonderlands.
Valextra: Large B-Shopping East/West Tote
A winter white bag can easily segue into spring and is an elegant contrast to the ubiquitous black seen throughout the colder months. The Valextra brand is Italy’s answer to Hermès. And this large B-shopping East/West Tote is a great size and style; it can be a workhorse by day and still look tailored enough for dinner out.
Milly: Seamed Leather Shell
Ralph Lauren: Double-Faced Wool Crepe Dress
Every woman should own a wool crepe dress, especially in the new stretch variations. It has great flow, its light weight works for nine months of the year, and it travels beautifully. This lovely Ralph Lauren double-faced wool crepe dress, with its flattering feminine lines, is so elegant in winter white. Wear it in the winter with opaque black tights and booties for a more fashion forward look, and then go classic in spring, as shown here, with sandals or a ladylike pump. This is the kind of dress that could work wonders in your wardrobe for years.
Trina Turk: Chunky Cable Knit Nordic Sweater
What would winter be without the chunky white sweater? This 100 percent wool version is the essence of femininity and warmth. It is blizzard-ready and fireside chic. Yes, it’s weather-appropriate, but pair it up with a nude pant or skirt for a sophisticated day look.
Striking, isn’t it? This Saint Laurent clutch, with its simple lines and elegant touch of gold, is an everyday clutch bag for today, tomorrow, and forever. It’s timeless, and will be clutchable way past winter. Feel free to carry it long into the spring months.
