Most people find out there’s more than one shade of white while browsing the paint store, but any dedicated minimalist knows there’s cream, warm beige, ivory, champagne, ecru — you get the gist. And while pairing various shades of one color together can be tricky, know that the secret to looking intentional rather than haphazard lies within the color wheel. If you’re sticking to shades with the same undertone — warm, like yellows and reds, or cool, like greens and blues — your outfit is bound to look cohesive.
That said, you’re free to let cashmere-blend sweaters mingle with satin pants or nubby wool jackets — and layer to your heart’s content. Ahead, the best winter neutrals from eggshell white to desert tan to pair together all winter long.
White satin pants may not be the first go-to item on your list, but this high-rise pair is made from a silky, wrinkle-resistant material, which means they’ll be as comfortable as a pair of pajamas.
Cropped Faux Fur Jacket
A faux fur coat manages to make any outfit look more refined. Pair this cropped style with a high-waisted skirt or trouser in a similarly luxe fabric, like satin or silk.
Here’s a reminder that your base layers — like this ribbed bodysuit from NYC designer Nia Thomas — can be chic, too.
If there’s one sweater to keep in rotation all winter long, it’s this ultra-soft cotton-blend sweater. Size up for a more ’90s fit, should you wish.
Ribbed Midi Dress
This long-sleeve knit dress is designed in a heavyweight rib for warmth.
A slouchy, ruffled bag turns any simple look into an outfit.
Layer this sheer organza shirt over a tissue-thin turtleneck to make it office- (or Zoom-) appropriate.
The lowly quarter-zip has enjoyed a revamp in recent seasons, and this cable-knit style from Uncle Studios is a great layering piece.
Ballet flats may seem like an impractical choice for a New York winter, but the elasticized collar on this pair means you can layer chunky socks underneath without fear of stretching them out come spring.
Let your off-white trousers peek out from the bottom of this oversized wool coat. (Bonus points if your off-white turtleneck spills out at the neckline, too.)
A cable-knit sweater is already a cold-weather must-have, but when it’s this soft? A true no-brainer.
Hat With Scarf
Designed in Ukraine, this hat and scarf combo is hand-knit in lambswool — and it’s perfect for chilly commutes.
Leather Maxi Skirt
A leather maxi skirt is ideal for the colder months. Wear with tall boots and a slouchy knit now, and sandals and a tee later.
