Fashion Trend: Winter White

Whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor Day is missing out on wearing designer collections of winter white fashion. Celebrities are well aware of the power of wearing a showstopping white dress or sleek, modern-cut white suit on the red carpet or at a party. Stilettos sprinkled with silver beading are festive and elegant and a little white clutch paired with a cocktail dress is a unique option.

The key to wearing winter white is in the style and fabrications. White denim is not appropriate for those colder, winter days, but a sleek pair of white tuxedo pants will look seasonal and chic. A puffy, white jacket will keep you warm on the bunny hill and a set of cashmere gloves and scarf will brighten up your face on those dreary, dark days. Check out the runway looks below for your winter white wardrobe inspiration.

This white, sleek jacket with cutouts is a modern twist on a sleek look that you can pair with any skirt or pair of sophisticated slacks.

So think "elegant" when you pick out your key winter white items this season and brighten up your wardrobe with some new pieces.
