The Sure-Fire Way to Make Your Winter Ensemble Look More Expensive

Is there anything more luxurious looking than a winter white outfit? This crisp, neutral hue has the ability to make every ensemble look seriously expensive. It may be cold and dreary out but your outfit says, I'm not giving in just yet—and looks undeniably chic while doing so. Not only does a winter white outfit look luxe but it can also be an instant mood lifter—a welcome change to the black and grey hues we’re so used to gravitating towards throughout the cold-weather season.

So how do you pull off the look? Steer away from your summer whites when it’s cold out (i.e lace and linen dresses or eyelet blouses), and instead mix and match plush and cozy cold-weather fabrics and textures such as ribbed knits, shearling, cashmere, and denim. Have fun playing with different shades of white within your outfit, or contrasting the crisp hue with accents of black or tan. Keep scrolling for some fashion-girl approved outfits that will inspire you to wear white this season. (Just careful with that coffee!).

Mix textures within your ensemble to add interest to your look.
