How to Wear Winter White Dresses

While white might be the most popular color choice for summer, it doesn’t mean that this color is only for the warm seasons. The “no white after labor day” fashion rule is so outdated that it is actually shunned nowadays. In fact, we’re seeing countless of women wearing winter whites, on the red carpet and on the streets.

If you want to rock this trend, too, here are some tips:

White Maxis

Wearing maxis can be a little bit tricky because long white dresses have a tendency to look like a bridal frock. If you don’t want to look like you are walking down the altar, go for dresses with edgier silhouettes or unexpected twists like the two options below.

Crisp and Simple

Sometimes, nothing is sexier than a crisp white outfit. Regardless of the season, simple white-colored outfits that are tailored well and accessorized properly are a surefire way to look good without trying too hard. Take notes from fashion blogger Jessica with her crisp and simple winter white look.

Romantic Flair

White just calls for romantic, feminine looks. Fashion blogger Jennifer opted for a lacy mini dress paired with romantic, sexy hair for a white ensemble. If you do not want to go white out from head to toe, add a pop of color, such as a neon bag or a pair of striking metallic shoes.
