White + Bright

Who said you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Maybe it’s just because I like to break rules, but I think white jeans are perfectly fine to wear throughout the fall. In my opinion, white denim is a great way to transition into your fall wardrobe. If you feel like it’s too early to wear your dark denim and boots, pair your chunky fall sweaters and scarves with white jeans for a fresh new look!

No, you aren’t seeing things. I wore this shirt + necklace combination last week in NYC. Ever since I started Bows & Sequins, I’ve had to think outside the box when it comes to outfits. I don’t have the budget to buy new outfits to feature each day of the week. I’m going to repeat pieces… a lot. I’ve just had to figure out ways to repeat pieces to make the outfits look totally different so I’m not boring all of you.

What about you? Do you dare to wear white, especially white pants, after Labor Day? And for you fashion/personal style bloggers, how do you make the most out of your wardrobe without repeating outfits?

      Thank you! They’re SO comfortable. I wish Gap still sold them. I’m crossing my fingers they’ll have them again later in the fall!

    COMPLETELY agree with you about white denim!! I love wearing it in the fall. This look is great, especially with the leopard flats. Not repeating looks is hard. I try my best to space pieces out when I repeat them. I’m glad fall is coming though, because I get to break out a bunch of things that haven’t been seen yet!

      I would almost rather wear my white denim in the fall because it’s not as hot. I try to limit my pants during summer days so I mainly just wear white denim at night. And I totally agree about the fall wardrobe! Wearing my fall pieces again has made me feel like I have a lot more to work with!

    Love the gingham and leopard combo! And I wear my white jeans all year long! Since I MAYBE wear jeans 2x a summer I have to get use out of them when it is cold!
