{5 Ways} White Jeans in Winter

Cheers to Friday! What plans do you have this weekend? Since I have a fun houseguest coming next week, my goal is to make our guest room look less like a depressing furniture graveyard, and more like a halfway acceptable sleeping quarter. I see a trip to HomeGoods in my future!

For today’s Friday Fashion, I’m sharing how I wear white jeans in Winter. #gasp #what? #emilypostcalled But before you let rules and etiquette talk you out of it, let me show you
{Five Ways} to rock those winter whites.

Just as with transitioning your dresses from season to season, the same rules apply for whites…as long as they aren’t made of seasonal fabric like linen or eyelet, then you’re good to go all year long. I did a similar {Five Ways} for Fall a few years ago, but let’s take a look at styling those white jeans for colder, Winter days.

Sidenote: These are real-life outfits I wore gadding about over the past month, and had Mr. SP snap pics wherever we were.

ONE | Just as in Summer, every color appears more crisp when paired with white in Winter. And although I love bright colors, one of my favorite cold-weather combos is camel and white.

Style Tip: Layer similar hues of a single color for a smart, timeless look.

TWO | Even though brighter colors may lean towards warmer months, the fabrics are what say Winter…like a wool scarf and suede booties.

Style Tip: Scarf too short or bulky to tie around your neck? Drape it for a splash of color.

THREE | Combining black and white never goes out of style, or season.

Style Tip: Hats are even easier to pull off this time of year, so don’t be afraid to use them in your outfit…and cover up four three-day hair!

FOUR | Pairing same-color elements is a modern, muted way of layering, as long as the fabrics aren’t too similar, or the lines identical. In this case, I layered a quilted vest over a wool turtleneck. It would be extra-chic with just the hat and taupe boots, but I added the stripe and scarf for more color and warmth.

Style Tip: Add an extra element to your outfit by layering a second (or third!) pattern, and pulling up the sleeves a bit to reveal more of it.

FIVE | Forget just Fridays, white is my sneaky way of making jeans work-appropriate any day of the week.

Style Tip: If the weather allows, use extra layers like striped tees, blazers and scarves to stay warm, instead of always reaching for the same coat.

You could easily swap traditional denim in any of these outfits, but the pop of white is just so crisp and unexpected this time of year…not to mention, extends your wardrobe by keeping more pieces in play year-round.

Are you still working your white jeans? Which of these looks is your favorite? Chances are, you have similar pieces in your own closet, so I hope this post has inspired some new looks for you. Happy weekend, lovebugs!
