For last week’s Fox 9 Morning Show segment, I talked about wearing winter white, a trend that I hadn’t really explored myself. I always try to wear an example of what I’m explaining, and was delighted to find that I actually had pieces that constituted a white suit already in my closet! Having seen this trend in action and noted that adding non-bright tones to the mix help, I threw in my oatmeal tee and a few chain and snakeskin accents.

Anyone else out there trying winter white? How are you wearing it?

    But in motion, on the TV clip, the pants and jacket look too tight.

    Sally, I say this as a reader of many years, who knows how much value you place on looking good. I haven’t watched the clip (video playback is restricted at work!), but I’d like to gently point out that the jacket looks too small here, too. The sleeves are pulling at the seams and it doesn’t seem that you can actually close the jacket. This is such a fashion forward outfit idea, and it would look so fresh and flattering if done with pieces where the fit is better.

    I have always thought “winter white” is an off white not a bright white. I just can’t wrap my head around most of the white outfits you showed — I do like the white fur, for one, its FUR which is wintery, and it appeared to be an off white. I am okay with winter white cordoroy (jeans, jacket etc) or a winter white WOOL, pants, skirt etc, but not white denim — that will ALWAYS mean summer to me! And furthermore white of any shade is just NOT practical in most winter climates…mud, dirt, salt….

    I have not worn winter white this season, but seeing your chic look has me inspired! You look great…love the shoes too!

    I think that wearing winter white depends on the fabric. The clothes you are wearing here really appear to be spring and summer fabrics, which make them seem not right for winter. The pants especially appear to be cotton twill.

    When I do winter white, I like to wear fabrics like wool and denim (love wearing my off-white jeans with a navy schoolboy blazer, a scarf and riding boots). I agree that wearing white in the winter with subdued colors tones it down and makes it more seasonally appropriate, but the fabric is what really matters here.

    Interesting feedback from all of you! This outfit and trend are outside my comfort zone, but I wanted to give them a go. Just like everyone, I have to experiment sometimes to see what works and what doesn’t.
