Breaking Rules, Wearing White After Labor Day

Yes, we are breaking that rule once and for all. I am sure you agree that it’s silly. I think we have the right to choose what we wear. So we are wearing white after labor day and all year long! You may be wondering where this rule came from? Why can’t you wear white after labor day? Well, believe it or not, this rule has historical roots. Well, no one wants to live in the past and the various reasons for not wearing white after labor day no longer hold up. We simply don’t care. I love a wearing white during colder months as well and I have a few items that I have purchased recently that I plan to wear in the fall and winter. Fashion designers have caught up with the idea that when in fashion there are no rules with beautiful white coats, knit sweaters, trousers, dresses, and accessories.

The only thing you have to keep in mind when buying any clothing item that’s meant for summer is that it’s a transition piece. Some pieces just don’t look great with a heavy sweater or coat. It’s important to consider the fabric and style of the piece.

 


Here are a few pieces that transition well from season to season:

Ever New Gina Strapless Midi Dress
Ever New Gina Strapless Midi Dress $139.99 CAD

This beautiful dress by Ever New Melbourne is made with a luxe thick textured cloth. It falls mid-length and has a fitted bodice with fold detail, removable straps, a fixed waist seam. Lined fully with back zip closure. You can wear it by on its own. Pair it with a nice sandaled heel or add a leather jacket, coloured blazer, and ankle boots. It’s a great layer piece that you can dress up, make it edgy or dress down with a pair of sneakers.

 


 

STYLEKEEPERS Serenade Off Shoulder Top
STYLEKEEPERS Serenade Off Shoulder Top $105.00 USD – $139.00 CAD.

Stylekeepers is one of my new favourite brands. I honestly didn’t want to share because I love their stuff so much and some things you just want to keep to yourself! But I love y’all so I will share. This blouse is stunning. You will notice embellished sweaters and tops is on trend this year. You can wear a skirt, shorts or leather pants with this top as well. It would work great with the Alexander Wang white booties!

 


 

 

Alexander Wang Eri Zipper Bootie
Alexander Wang Eri Zipper Bootie -$850.00 USD – $1,133.15 CAD

Polished dome studs trace the sole of a calfskin-leather bootie and give it a mod aesthetic. I love the exposed front zip and sleek pointed toe.

 


 

 

Saint Laurent Saint Laurent Small Kate Grained Leather Crossbody Bag
Saint Laurent Small Kate Grained Leather Crossbody Bag – $1,650.00 USD – $2,199.65 CAD.

When in doubt, go for accessories. White accessories a great way to add an accent piece to your look. All black everything with a pop of white looks amazing. The sky is the limit with this bag. It works with every look!

 


 

 

ST. JOHN COLLECTION Emma Satin Back Crepe Pants
ST. JOHN COLLECTION Emma Satin Back Crepe Pants -$495.00 USD – $659.89 CAD.

I love these pants by St. John Collection. They are actually lavender white, just beautiful. They fall nicely on your body and work well with so many looks.

 

As you can see all of the items featured above are simple and elegant. You can dress them up or dress them down. You can use them as a reference point when looking for white pieces or you can shop them! Whenever I buy neutrals I buy items that are versatile and well-made. You will notice that white clothing made with low-quality fabrics tend to turn yellowish or look gray. One rule you should follow when buying your all-seasons white clothing is quality!.
