Wearing White After Labor Day

By now, “Can I wear white after Labor Day” isn’t a style subject that’s up for debate.

Yes, of course you can! White was splashed all over the runway each of the past few seasons. It’s no longer a spring- and summer-specific hue, and it’s a key-player in my closet year-round.

When shopping for winter whites, pick textured pieces and steer clear of flimsy fabrics. Smart styling can bring your summer whites (like jeans) into cooler months. Try mixing textures, layering, and adding an off-white or cream piece to give your winter whites some weight. In today’s case, a cap-toe in rose gold is often times the answer, too.

The only thing that should stress you when you’re wearing whites year-round is a coffee stain. And, speaking from experience, perhaps stick to white wine at dinner.

Lastly, the best time to shop for white denim is, incidentally, after Labor Day. Here’s a few styles that I’ve found for you on sale.

For more style inspiration, check out this post from Sara at Gliter & Grace to see how four style bloggers styled their post-holiday whites. (Jessica‘s is one of my faves. Illinois pride!)

    I love those shoes! It is so true that the best time is after labor day! I saw so many great pairs on sale at anthropologie. Unfortunately for me, I am not one of those women who can wear white. Within 5 minutes something will be spilled on those jeans. They look great on you!

    I swear you always have sick shoes… Please come visit me in New Jersey so we can go stem shopping together! The outfit is so crisp and fresh. I own nothing white, however, since I’m afraid of staining/spilling something on it. Looks fab on you!
