Whoever made up the rule that white shouldn’t be worn after Labor Day was seriously wrong. No more waiting anxiously to throw on your exclusive Summer whites right at Memorial Day just to make the most of them by September. You can still make your whites look chic simply layered with the right pieces.
Textures, knits, fabrics, and closed toed shoes are just a few of the essentials that go hand in hand with your Fall white ensemble. Here are four ways to switch it up and rock this classic staple even when it’s chilly out. –mckenzie harris
1. Your white maxi skirt that you’ve been wearing shamelessly actually makes a great switch to cool weather. Add a chunky knit sweater and tough military boots to balance out the lightness and add some warmth.
2. Everyone has a pair of white jeans in their wardrobe. To take the summery feel out of white skinny jeans, add a darker palette on top, whether solid or print. You can play up the Fall texture with a faux fur vest and edgier studded flats for that unexpected finish.
3. That little white dress that got you mad compliments on at every picnic and BBQ you attended the last three months anchors perfectly with an olive hued military jacket and desert colored booties for a polished on-the-go look. A lady like cross body bag will add just the right amount of feminine touch.
4. The easiest item to transition into an autumn wardrobe is you classic, white button-down shirt dress. Take advantage of the length and pair it with cool leather pants or leggings. Layer on your favorite sweater and finish off with a pair of oxfords for a style that’s easy to go from day to night.
