Cold weather whites

If you think white is just for summer, think again! We love this classic neutral for winter because it’s versatile and easily brightens up any outfit. Still not convinced? We’ve rounded up some fashionable proof.

Cold weather whites

Belted asymmetrical coat

Cozy up in a coat that takes its inspiration from winter’s snowy swirl ($198). This chic white wool blend coat features a side-swept funnel neck, epaulets, decorative domed buttons and a removable belt. We love the off-kilter design and easy elegance of this winter-ready piece of outerwear.

Switch things up at work (or at play) by trading black or navy blazers for something in white. We’re partial to this one ($70) with a shawl collar and slim fit that could easily be paired with anything from high waist trousers and heels to skinny jeans and knee-high boots.

Sweater dress

Colder weather calls for cute items you can cozy up in and one of our favorites is the sweater dress. We’re currently coveting this one by Ralph Lauren with a ribbed shawl collar and faux leather buckle detail at the waist ($119). Wear over leggings or chunky knit tights with a pair of knee-length boots for toasty, winter-white style.

Turtleneck sweater

Nothing locks out the chill on a particularly cold day like a turtleneck. Cozy up in style by adding this sleek white Ralph Lauren sweater to your winter wardrobe ($30). Layer under a printed blazer for work, or wear with skinny trousers and denim or a faux leather jacket on more casual days.

Cold weather whites


While handbags in bold hues are perfect for summer, winter calls for a more subtle approach to accessories. We love this stylishly structured satchel just the right size for any time you don’t want to be burdened by a bulky bag ($198).

Cold weather whites

Cashmere travel wrap

Traveling can be an uncomfortable experience. Planes are often cold and airports can seem totally impersonal. Make your time in-flight that much better with this chic cashmere travel wrap, which can add an elegant twist to even your most casual airport outfit ($295). It might feel like a splurge, but you’ll be thankful you have it.
