Despite the brutal temperature drops, winter has its charms. Freshly fallen snow, holiday parties, and mountain getaways all delight in a way, unlike any other season. Another pro? Winter white outfits that feature the season’s coziest knits, chicest coats, cool boots, and so much more. Plus, snuggly leisurewear for curling up in at home, like fleecy sweats and cloud-soft socks. There’s also the matter of festive attire, which is infinitely more exciting this year now that IRL parties are (hopefully) back in the mix. While sequins, metallics, and rich jewel tones all thrill this time of year, there’s something about a white party outfit that’s decidedly fresh and stands out in a sea of shimmer.

Here’s the best part: While just about anything goes with a winter white outfit, from tons of layers to mixed textures and mishmashes of fanciful and laidback pieces in a single outfit, most importantly, pure white isn’t the only color option. Shades of cream, ivory, beige, tan, and black all play well together for depth and contrast. Not to mention they’re less threatening with that morning cup of coffee. Keep scrolling for 11 stylish winter white outfits for a more helpful visual, ranging from ultra-cozy to party-perfect.
