Style expert Denise Caldwell also had some great tips for finding classic white pieces, including white jeans.

It's all about find the right cut and fabric, according to Caldwell. She suggested a mid-rise pair in a stretchy polyester or spandex blend so it appears smooth and not sheer. To achieve a slimming effect, opt for jeans that hit neatly at your ankles.

The Simple White Pencil Skirt

If you're looking to rock winter white at a more formal event, a simple pencil skirt is a great way to go. Pair it with a cozy white sweater and over-the-knee boots and you're set!

It doesn't take much for a pencil skirt to look slimming. That's its job, right? But to really accentuate your curves, look for a fabric that's sturdy, yet stretchy enough to create a smoothing effect. Two more tips from Caldwell: Belt the skirt to create a nice waistline.

The Winter-Proof White Dress

If you thought white dresses were only appropriate in the spring or summer, think again!

Pair a simple white dress with a nice outerwear piece to create a sleek silhouette. Afraid of going all-white? Caldwell also suggested playing around with color-blocking and eyelet fabric to achieve a similar look.
