How did it come to be that such a simple color would be banished for a certain period of time each year? “Is it okay to wear white after Labor Day?” seems to be a frequently-asked question around fall season.
But these days people simple dress for the weather. So while lighter colors and linen may leave you freezing in the cold weather, but who’s to say that the no-white-after-Labor-Day rule applies even in today’s fashion? White is a color that can be worn year-round.
So as far fall officially arrives, a true fashionista wouldn’t dare say goodbye to her summer white pieces just to appease an ancient rule. With a little inspiration, anyone can fashion-forward in the fall while wearing white – and here are a few of our favorite ways to do just that:
Don’t Say Goodbye to Your White Jeans
White jeans can definitely be worn year-round. However, during the fall/winter, it’s all about how you wear and pair them. Try white jeans with a simple fall/winter sweater, scarf and boots, and you’ll be still in season. You can pair your ripped white jeans and white button down with a pink sweatshirt, lavender scarf, and combat boots as she transforms her spring and summer colors into a more autumnal look.
Layer a Sweater over Your Favourite White Dress
Layering clothes is something that can easily go wrong – but when done right, it can totally transform an outfit. In most cases, when fall arrives, we say goodbye to all our cute, white summer dresses. Thanks to latest trend, you don’t have to. You can layer a long white maxi dress with a long solid nude sweater and pair it with a chic sneaker. Layering is an easy way to still rock your favourite summer dress, white or not.
When in Doubt, Add Leather
Leather screams fall and winter. You could wear leather with so many things and it will transform some of those summer pieces you can’t seem to say goodbye to. You can pair your white blouse and subtle nude skirt with a black leather jacket and boots.
Add Nude, Ivory, or Cream
We’ve all heard of the term “winter white”. Winter white is anything between ivory and cream, or nude sprinkled in; no one will second guess your outfit choice. Pair your white skirt with a solid nude sweater. With this look, it completely has fall written on it and brings elegance in the most natural way.
With just the right boot or jacket, you could rock so many summer pieces, even that white dress you wore during the summer. You can pair your white summer dress with a simple black ankle boot. Adding a boot is the simplest way to style a summer look for fall.
