As the holiday season sets in the temptation is often to embrace the bold and the bright - from vivid reds to glittering, look at me golds. And while bright is always beautiful there is a place in your holiday dressing for the cool, clean tones of pure white. The color of freshly driven snow and mistletoe should always make an appearance in your festive wardrobe.

White was also a designer favorite on the fall and winter catwalks for 2017 meaning you have no excuse not to embrace one of the hottest colors of the holiday season. There is more to white winter dressing than reworking pale summer pieces, though. Winter whites are all about luxe textures and gorgeous tailoring. In winter, white shows off its grown-up side.

Are you dreaming of a white winter? Look no further. Check out our favorite ways to dazzle in white below.
