Scandal’s Olivia Pope has taught us a lot of things, including but not limited to the following. It’s possible to drink red wine on a white couch and not make a huge mess, repeating “I am a gladiator” is half the battle of conquering any situation life may throw at you, and as long as you are always there for your people, they will eventually forgive you for disappearing to a deserted island with your boyfriend. Perhaps the most important lesson, though, is how to rock a white coat.
We are all for breaking so-called fashion rules, and wearing white all winter long is nothing to shy away from. There are countless ways to style white head-to-toe during the colder months of the year. Perhaps the easiest way to work the supposed summer color into your winter wardrobe, however, is to wrap yourself up in a warm coat. White is as elegant and effortless as our other beloved neutrals, but a white coat is not only classic—it’s exciting and modern.
You can’t go wrong with winter whites—double breasted, robe coats, and dusters alike. Toss one over your favorite jeans and flats, or go full-on Scandal style with your favorite outfit for the office. Start shopping this winter coat trend with the 18 white styles below!
