The great debate a redhead must face every day: to wear white or not to wear white. Misconceptions about the appearance of fair-skinned beauties in white, unfortunately results in many redheads shying away from wearing the color. As ladies of the rouge hue, we have an advantage—the best natural accessory to complement a white wardrobe—our vivacious locks!
Confidence is key to rockin’ winter whites. Here is how to wear white with your rockin’ red hair:
1. The white leather or faux-leather jacket
Structure, structure, structure is key to pulling off a white jacket. Try on a variety of styles to see what fit best suits your body type. Levi’s Women’s Faux Leather Belted Motorcycle Jacket offers an edgy cut in a great texture. Offset your white motorcycle jacket with a colored t-shirt, such as red (yes, redheads can wear red too) and a black skinny jean.
2. The cable-knit white sweater
The Wall Street Journal deflates the no-white-after-Labor Day superstition in its article: “Extreme Cream Fashion for Fall”. It says,“In some fashionable circles, white jeans are a staple from November to March. In fact, one could draw a connection between the popularity of white jeans paired with a classic off-white fisherman’s knit and this new cream wave.”
Try a style comparable like this Sovoyontee Woman’s Long Sleeves Irish Cable Knit Chunky Turtleneck in white. Texture is essential to pulling off white-on-white; look for lots of texture and weight for your sweater to complement your red hair and overall look.
3. The white party dress
Every redhead needs the perfect dress for the festivities. Why not go white? If you’re not attending a wedding as a. guest, that is. Skillfully accessorize your white party dress with statement pieces, such as deep jewel toned earrings or a bold gold necklace. This WOOSEA Women’s Elegant Pleated Short Sleeves Cocktail Party Swing Dress is a splendid choice for the redhead in search of a festive frock! The pleated texture adds dimension and could even be paired with a gold metallic belt. The daring redhead could even choose to amplify the look with jade heels.

4. The white skinny
This is a staple for any redhead. The white skinny jean can be paired with a deep burgundy blouse for a dramatic look or metallics, such as silver for a winter wonderland look. Since the alabaster hue is featured on the bottom portion of your body, even the fairest skinned redheads can feel at ease that her coloring won’t be jeopardized.
