How To: Wear White AFTER Labor Day

by Jessica Sturdy on August 29, 2012

I know, I know. It’s not quite Labor Day, but I started dreaming of fall weeks ago. Once August has come and gone, one of the most frequent style questions I hear is “Do I really have to stop wearing white??” The answer is NO! No, you do not. I’m a big advocate of wearing white pretty much year round. Will I be tucking my stark white denim into my snow boots? Probably not, but there are definitely ways to incorporate white into your wardrobe year round.

I’ve teamed-up with three other bloggers (Jen of Jenny in Jacquard, Sara of Glitter & Grace, and Tara of Mix and Match Fashion) to show you a few different ways you CAN wear white after Labor Day! Click here to check out all of the different ways we are wearing white!

White looks fresh in the fall, especially when paired with typical autumn colors like rust, pumpkin, navy, cognac, olive, etc.

I may be re-creating this look when I am cheering on the Illini from a local drinking establishment this fall!

Love your new bag! I’ve been a nervous Nellie ever since your bag broke…I have the same one in cognac! I too love wearing white year around; it’s an amazing basic to build upon and should be celebrated and decorated!

Love your outfit! So cute! That new bag is really nice~its a bummer your other bag broke, but your new one is really cute! May I ask, what size did you end up getting in the tee? With JC, you never know how their shirts will run. Have a great day!

Love it! I have the same shirt from J Crew but haven’t worn it yet. I had on white jeans the day I tried it on & bought it, and I thought it did look good together! Now I just need your shoes & bag ;)

Love your outfit, especially your new bag. I’m glad we can wear white after labor day, especially since i recently purchase a white blazer and white pants.

I’m always so scared to wear white in the fall. It’s not that I’m afraid of the old rule, I just always feel I look too summery. This post is great though, so thanks for the inspiration!

i knew your heels looked familiar. i have the same pair in grey, but the brown is lovely as well. i love the chunky wooden heel. i’ve been trying to find the perfect white jeans for myself, but no luck. i like the your simple and effortless combination.
