You can wear white after Labor Day
Every time I hear someone say that wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion faux pas, I can’t help but frown. This unwritten rule isn’t true at all and white looks great all throughout the fall and winter seasons. In fact, it can be considered perfect for a holiday party because it shares the same color as beautiful snow. Keep reading to see how you can break this age-old tradition.
If you are fretting about wearing white because of this saying, don’t! Rather be worried about stains on your outfit and not this outdated notion. I believe that white is not a season specific hue. Just like black, you can wear it anytime of the year. The color has dominated the fall/winter trend for many years now. The key is to wear it right.
For me, winter whites are all about layering them for a comfy feel. Beat the autumn chill by picking solid pieces with layers instead of sheer or flimsy materials. Ladies evening jackets in white are the perfect finish to an elegant outfit, be it for work or any other formal occasion. Pick them in materials like satin or suede to stay snug. Blend shades of white with off-whites and creams for a polished look.
Though I love all white look, I really enjoy experimenting it with contrasting and vibrant hues! The beauty of white is that it can make any outfit stunning. For instance, white pencil skirts with orange turtle necks or fuchsia blouses are peppy and yet subtle for work. The chic pencil cut is figure flattering.
Some other stunning alternatives you can try out are
- Add some structure and detailing with ruched or frilled white dresses for a feminine look
- Don a white bomber jacket instead of the staple black or blue
- Go for starchy fabrics that hold their shape when going all white
- Bring maxi into the winter months by wearing long flowy skirts with white knits or cardigans
