White garments are a closet staple, but they’re not as straightforward as wearing black – and certainly not without their controversies (is no white after Labor Day still a thing? No!).
To help clear up and simplify wearing this classic neutral we turned to Jacqueline Harris, co-founder of I Love Tyler Madison, and asked her to share with us her tips for wearing white – all year round.
“Effortlessly chic and easy to pull together, the monochrome look has a minimal, streamlined sophistication that elevates any winter wardrobe. Pair a white wide-leg trouser with a thick white turtleneck for an understated polish, zero effort required.”
MIX ‘N MATCH
“Coordinate neutral hues with warm undertones for a crisp-yet-cozy winter vibe. An earthy palette of soft white, creamy cappuccino, and timeless tan blends beautifully for a fresh take on cold-weather classics. Style a pair of white trousers with a caramel top and chocolate brown boots, top with a milky shearling coat and you’re set for the season.”
BLACK & WHITE
“For a high-contrast, graphic look with an unexpected edge, try pop of black in your all-white arsenal. Add a textured black belt, luxe boots, or a cashmere hat to your sleek silhouettes, or style a black bandeau under a tailored white suit for a crisp corporate ensemble.”
“Go glam with sparkly statement pieces for an elegant spin. Eye-catching and elegant, glitzy accessories add a dash of panache to your tonal whites. Try a vintage-inspired brooch (trending right now), chunky gold jewelry, or a swanky clutch, and you’re ready for whatever the crisp winter night brings.”
“Pair different shades of white for a coordinated cold weather look with high versatility and endless style mileage. A balanced blend of rich vanillas, soft eggshells, creamy marshmallows, and optic whites make for an ultra-chic combo that works head-to toe. Top with an oversized faux fur for an extra dose of luxe winter warmth.”
