There are few things better than a snowy white holiday season, and even fewer things better than rocking an outfit of head-to-toe winter whites! While the idea of wearing a monochrome outfit that isn't all black strikes fear into the hearts of many collegiettes, it's actually pretty simple. We've rounded up three of our favorite ways to wear winter whites this season!
1. Cozy and casual
This outfit is snuggly and perfect for a full day of class. Starting with a basic pair of white jeans with some cool ripped details, like these Topshop Moto 'Jamie' Ripped High Rise Ankle Skinny Jeans ($70 at Nordstrom), throw on an off-white knit sweater, like this Mango Cable-Knit Sweater ($34.99 at Mango), to stay cozy and warm all lecture long. Swap out your usual boots for the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Core Ox ($50 at Piperlime), and don't be afraid to get them dirty—they look even cooler that way! Finish off the look with an off-white crossbody bag, like this Faux Leather Flap Satchel ($24.90 at Forever 21), so you can keep your hands free (and wrapped around that peppermint mocha!).
2. White-hot night out
While all-black ensembles have been our go-to for nights out, we're super excited to try the head-to-toe white version. This Scrolled Airy White Bud Skirt ($38.17 at Chicwish) features a fun hemline that adds an unexpected touch to a classic bodycon skirt, and this Melissa Round Neck Crop Jumper ($26 at boohoo) will keep you warm while still showing off your midriff. We're absolutely obsesssed with these Quipid Croc-Textured Peep Toe Booties ($40.99 at Charlotte Russe), which look like something Kim K. would be seen rocking. But the real show-stopper of this look is the All Eyes On You Clutch ($44.90 at Akira). This fabulous bag is still in keeping with the white theme, but it adds a pop of color and definitely makes a statement.
3. Modern elegance
Who says you can't wear midi skirts in winter? Carry this summer staple into the colder months by opting for a white midi skirt with a faux leather texture rather than cotton or linen, which can look too summery (and won't keep you warm!). We love this Faux Leather Full Midi Skirt ($44.97 at Chicwish), especially when paired with this super cute Milly Mesh Heart Crop Jumper ($26 at boohoo). The combination of faux leather and a knit sweater adds some serious texture to the ladylike silhouette. Add some edge by skipping tights and rocking chunky booties, like these ACTION Chunky Lace Up Boots ($40 at Topshop). Instead of reaching for a dainty clutch, try pairing this look with a studded tote, like this Urban Originals Olivia Tonal Studded Tote Bag ($48 at Neiman Marcus). Finally, to make sure you're staying warm while looking cute, throw on a knit beanie, like this Women's Slouchy Wavy Beanie Hat ($14.99 at Target), to pull it all together.
Rocking winter whites is easier than it looks, as long as you resist the urge to be too matchy-matchy and take advantage of playing with different textures and silhouettes. With these tips from Her Campus, you'll be a walking winter wonderland in no time!
