I never understood why fashion experts said you couldn’t wear white after Labor Day. Sure, white is definitely more of a summer color, but the fall style combinations for white clothing are pretty endless. I think there are limitations to breaking the rule, though! You probably do not want to be walking around wearing white shorts with white shoes in December, but white skinnies are do-able with a fall colored sweater, like burgundy or black, and cute booties. Or that white top you just bought in an end-of-summer sale? Throw a grey cardigan over it with classic denim skinnies unless you want to be trendy and pair with olive moto jeggings instead! White sweaters also look amazing with any color/style jean.. I am currently picturing the 70s wide leg jeans with a cream cowl neck sweater and a sleek pony tail! Unfortunately, it’s still too hot for any type of sweater, but a girl can dream right?!
With Mississippi State football in full force, wearing white outfits on designated game days have been the perfect opportunity to add some burgundy (or maroon) details to make any look fall ready! I found this romper (the skort style is adorable) on one of my favorite online boutiques, but it was out of stock. After lots of searching, I finally figured out the brand (Moon River) and luckily, they sell retail merchandise from their website too! The abstract burgundy detailing makes the romper a solid transitional piece for fall even though it is white. I added burgundy accessories like my hat and Kendra Scott earrings to make sure the outfit lost any summer vibe. My favorite Vince Camuto booties (from last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) also helped accomplish that.
With the right pieces, wearing white can totally be acceptable to rock after Labor Day! If you are still not convinced, Emily Post actually approves of this reinvented fashion rule. And she’s the queen of proper etiquette! Shop my look plus a few of my favorite white pieces below.
