Why You Should Not Listen To Fashion Rules
Once a upon a time, someone came up with some fashion rules. Basically unspoken rules about fashion do’s and don’ts. For a while I made sure I abided by the fashion don’ts. As I get older and got more comfortable with my personal style, I’ve been throwing these rules out the window. It felt like it limited my options and personal style. The most common fashion don’t is ‘don’t wear white after Labor Day‘. Wearing white is usually associated during the summer since wearing a white dress is prominent in the summer.
Why I Love Wearing White
In the past few years, I noticed I can incorporate wearing white in every season. I find the color white very flattering. Last Fall, I was loving the all white outfit and it was one of my most popular posts last year. And guess what, that was after Labor Day.
In this post I decided to wear my first white after Labor Day by wearing my favorite distressed white jeans and aviators (btw, my aviators are totally customizable!). Since the temperature is slightly cooler, I decided to pair my whites with a buffalo check shirt. I think the flannel shirt gives it a more Fall look.
4 Tips To Wear White After Labor Day
Without a doubt, I highly recommend wearing white after Labor Day. If you’re unsure how, here’s how I wear white after summer.
1. Wear White In Jeans
If you are going to wear white after Labor Day, the best way to wear white is in your jeans. Since jeans are more appropriate to wear in the Fall (the crisp air, cooler temps make it ideal jeans weather), why not wear it in white? My favorite and affordable white jeans are the Rockstar distressed jeans, Topshop Jeans, and High Rise Skinny Jeans.
2. Wear White In Sweaters
Cooler temperatures mean it’s time for sweater weather. There are tons of cute sweaters out there and many are in the color white. This also includes cardigans. I love wearing white cardigans because they go with anything! This makes it so easy to layer, especially if you’re looking for a more transitional look. My favorite white sweaters are Crewneck sweater, Cable Knitted Sweater, and Tie-Cuff Sweater. My favorite cardigans are Textured cardigan, Cardigan Sweater, and Cardigan Wrap.
3. Wear White with Fall Colors
Just like the outfit in this post, pairing white with Fall colors such as navy blue, burnt orange, burgundy, olive green, etc gives it more of a cooler temperature style versus a summer feel. I love to pair white with this navy ruffled sweater, burgundy wide-leg pants, and green quilted jacket.
4. Wear White with Dark Sunglasses
Even when the temperature drops, sunglasses are one of the accessories that are necessary. Just because the days are shorter, doesn’t mean the sun will not bother your eyes when you step outside during the day. I lean towards dark colored frames and lenses with my sunglasses. Lately, I’ve been into my aviators, and I love my tortoise round ones (it is the one I wear in almost every post haha!)
