I am completely stumped when it comes to winter white! I feel like I am lost in a blizzard! Can I wear white pants with a dark top? or multi-colored layers? How can I mix white with other pieces? Is it supposed to be ivory? Or can it be white white too? The only outfit I feel safe with is an all-white outfit. I do have one outfit I really like.
But I want to be able to wear those pieces in other ways!
I looked at the slideshow foe the article “Wear White!” on vogue.com. But even there, the outfits were all white. Surely there must be a way to wear winter white with other colors?
The fabsugar article says, “Also, don’t be afraid to pair your whites with darker, high-contrast duds.” But the slideshow only shows 1 outfit with a different color, and that color is black. On the Refinery29 page, the article once again shows “18 Winter White Pieces to Brighten Your Wardrobe”. The slideshow is just that: a list of individual white pieces. Two outfits show white combined with (you guessed it) black.
I found some great ideas on pinterest, and put them up in a board called “Wearing White in Winter.” I’m still pretty new to pinterest, so I’m not sure if you can view the board without joining twitter. so I will post a few of the pics here as well.
I’m also posting my winter white outfit:
I apologize for the blurry pictures! I do love this outfit, but when I look at the full on pic of me in the doorway, all I can think is how much I look like Abby Lee Miller. Not in the face, but in the outfit, and the way I am standing. I really have to lose weight! I hate how big I look in that pic!
Look for outfits mixing winter white with other colors soon! I will be posting some in the next few days!

Here’s the next outfit from pinterest I’m going to try. I’m going to wear it with a floral scarf.
