Wear White After Labor Day

By -

It’s one of the oldest fashion rules in the book, and you probably heard your mother repeat it a thousand times: “don’t wear white after labor day!” This is definitely one of those rules that was made to be broken. While a lot of white all at once can look a little too summery when the leaves begin to fall, there are so many ways to incorporate white into your winter wardrobe while staying fashion forward.


White Pants

To bring your white skinny jeans or pants into season, consider swapping to a cream shade. This will update your look while keeping the clean, crisp feel of a great pair of pale denims. Just make sure not to spill, and check for stains before putting them on in the morning!

The Little White Dress

A modern update on the little black dress, a cute white dress will look great in any season. Pair with an eye-catching belt, colourful tights or bold heels for a polished, chic look. A leather jacket or blazer thrown over the top will keep out the coming chill while helping you transition from summer to fall in style.

The White Blazer

A blazer is a must have item for your autumn wardrobe; it’s so easy to wear from the workplace into the rest of your life. Pair it with sharp pants or a pencil skirt for a professional look, or over a pretty dress on date night to cover up while looking chic. Wear with skinny jeans, boots and a graphic t-shirt for a rock and roll vibe.

The Soft Sweater

For the best in warm, cosy winter wear, look no further than a perfect white sweater. You can match the snow in ski season in a crisp white design that will look fabulous long after Labour Day. Pick a style that’s slightly oversized for a comfortable fit, and that’s long enough to layer with. For the ultimate in winter comfort, cashmere is always the best choice, like this luxurious sweater from J. Crew.

  1. Well, I’m a traditionalist. My white shoes are in the closet from Labor Day to Memorial Day. But I’m old enough to know the old rules aren’t always right. xoxoxoxo Mom
