12 Days of Dresses: 3 ways to wear winter white

Fashion rules were made to be broken. Whether it’s mixing prints or a non-matching shoes and purse combo, the masses have kissed most old-school style laws buh-bye. But there’s still one lingering outdated rule that leaves us feeling Scrooge-y: no white after Labor Day. We’re busting that bah-humbug bunk for good, and showing you how to wow in white—Winter Wonderland style.

    Candy glam

    Cream is the classic—and safest—shade for winter whites. A gold collar picks up the flecks of gold in this dreamy jacquard dress. For a truly festive vibe, kick it up with a colorful pump. Don’t forget the matching ring and clutch combo—so on-trend.

    Frosty femme

    Much like the frost formations on the windowpane, a white lace frock has us dreaming of a fresh snowfall. The key here is contrast: a black belt against an ivory skater dress sets this ensemble apart from your sunny boho get-ups. Add girly and glitzy touches with bows and beads.

    Edgy on ice

    Who knew a stark white dress could be so bold? Pair it with funky tights, velvet heels (swoon!) and a cool cobalt blazer for the ultimate wintry scene. The finishing touch: an icicle-inspired spike bracelet. Wear it your wrist, or around a bun like in our Dec/Jan glossy. (Psst! For expert level, swap the blue blazer for a hot pink blazer. It works—trust!)
