3 Stylish Ways to Wear White After Labor Day


All white after labor day

One of the oldest rules in the fashion world is about to be broken. That’s right, I’m taking a stand against “no white after Labor Day.” Here at CF, we think this rule is a little outdated. Not to mention, white is just too gorgeous to reserve for only spring and summer! I can’t resist adding it to my wardrobe for the fall and winter, and you can too with ease.

Below, I’ve created three different ways to wear white after labor day. Scroll down to see the looks!

Little White Dress

Lwd outfit
Dress, Jacket, Shoes, Bag, Tights, Belt, Earrings

Transition your LWD (little white dress) from summer to fall with a few key pieces. Slip on a pair of faux patent leather pumps and accent the dress with a statement belt. For cooler temperatures, layer over opaque tights in an oxblood shade and add a moto-style jacket. Complete this chic ensemble with a leopard print fold-over clutch and cat-shaped studs for a fierce twist!

Trail Blazer

Blazer outfit
Top, Skort, Blazer, Shoes, Bag, Necklace, Sunglasses

Blaze a trail of style when you step out in this look! Wear a white blazer over a graphic tee tucked into an asymmetrical skort. Slip on a pair of super cool ankle booties, and grab a colorful crossbody to store the essentials. Complete the outfit with a bold statement necklace and cat-eye sunglasses. Breaking rules just got a little more fashionable!

Blank Canvas

Casual outfit
Top, Jeans, Shoes, Scarf, Necklace, Bracelet

Perhaps the biggest rule breaker of them all, white pants are usually the first to be banned under the post-labor-day rule. However, don’t tuck them away in the back of your closet just yet! These can easily be worn in fall for a casual but trendy appeal. Channel a relaxed vibe by pairing your white skinnies with a slouchy grey t-shirt and white converse. Keep accessories minimal with an infinity scarf, wrap bracelet, and a mini charm necklace to finish off this sleek getup.

What do you think?

Do you break any fashion rules? Would you wear white after Labor Day, or do you still follow the rule? Would you wear any of the looks above? Which outfit is your favorite? Would you like to see more posts like these in the future? Let me know in a comment below!

    I think if you live in a part of the us with warm weather all year you can wear white and summer clothing. A classic example I went to church in the winter months dressed in clothing I wore in the northern winter can out the sun was out 60 to 70 degrees I had to pill off some clothing.
