“No white after Labor Day!” -- Ever heard that saying?
If so, I have some news for you!
Since the news is both good and bad, I’ll give you the good news first. It’s not a thing anymore – white after Labor Day is completely acceptable. Now, that doesn’t mean that you can just wear white however you please, there is still a few rules to follow... but I’ll help you navigate them!
The bad news? You can’t associate with the person who taught you that saying anymore. They clearly don’t have your best interests at heart. So, say a quick goodbye to your grandmother and pack your bags for better living!
White is one of my FAVORITE fall colors. Actually, if I’m being honest… It’s one of my favorite colors all year round. However, during the fall season, the presence of white in an outfit helps to distinguish it from the later trends of the year – winter. Incorporating white into your ensemble is a great way to keep you look fresh and light, while still allowing you to add seasonal colors like mustard and wine.
Pairing the white with the right combination is key. If you try and add too bold of a color to your white pants, you may end up looking mismatched. To give you an example, I’ve paired my favorite white relaxed-skinny jeans with a neutral charcoal blouse. This combination allows me to pull in the warmer tones of the fall trends, without going too dark and conflicting.
Adding a wine colored clutch, in a suede fabric, pulls in another seasonal color, but the fabric helps to make that transition soft! If I had gone with a harsher bag composition, I would have changed my pants from a distressed/relaxed style to a sleeker style, or a slack looking pant with a crease. I also chose a lip color in the same family as the bag! That was a personal preference, mainly because the lipstick is one of my favs (look for my review on it this Friday!!)
To finish off the perfect “fall-white”, I incorporated another neutral color in my shoes. The beige suede bootie pulls in the neutral tone of the blouse and the texture of the clutch. This finishing touch allowed my look to come full circle and look polished, complete, and ready for the season ahead!
