What color pays better homage to chic winter fashion than white? The holiday season is largely observed as a religious occasion around the globe, so white seems an obvious choice. So unless you’re headed for anywhere that will involve peanut butter smears or Sharpie inkblots, wearing holiday white dresses is a daring-yet-demure fashion choice, outdated Labor Day fashion debates notwithstanding.
To avoid ending up looking like Anne Hathaway‘s Snow Queen (unless it’s your intended holiday costume), pair your white garment with other colors. (No head-to-toe white, please!)
Make sure to choose the fabric wisely. Stay away from light fabrics like linen to avoid looking prematurely summery.
We’ve selected 5 holiday white dresses on a budget from Shopbop‘s sale section. Feel free to layer these with your favorite outerwear to stave the chill.
