I Love a White Dress for Winter—Here Are 25 I Recommend

If you read my stories regularly you probably know that I’m dress obsessed. Even in winter, I love to luxuriate in a cozy frock—with the addition of plenty of layers, of course. While we tend to gravitate towards black, grey, and jewel-tone hues in winter, today I’m here to convince you that a winter white dress is also worth considering! Not only does the crisp and refreshing hue make every ensemble look more luxurious but it can be an instant mood lifter too—an invigorating hit on a cold, gray, winter's day.

To pull off the look during the cold-weather season avoid lightweight fabrics such as linen and broderie anglaise and instead, opt for cozy knits, corduroy, or jacquard fabrics that exude a wintery feel. Play with all different shades of white—from ivory to silvery hues, and finally layer your dress for the weather. Think a tissue-thin turtleneck under a slip dress, or a shearling coat over a knit number—and don’t forget your tights and boots.

Scroll below as I share my favorite winter white dresses I highly recommend adding to your cart this season.

Style Notes: A non-restrictive white mini dress with tights and ballet flats is a winning combination.

A jacquard weave fabric feels winter-ready.

This strikes the perfect balance of cozy and chic.

Get in the holiday mood and opt for a white knit dress with pretty embellishments.

Style Notes: Yes, you can wear a silky slip dress in winter. Simply layer a lightweight turtleneck underneath and top it off with a cozy cardigan. Fluffy white slippers would make a great finishing touch.

I'll be lounging in this one all day every day throughout the winter holiday.
