How To Wear White After Labor Day


Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day??


Rules are no more! 

Tips on how to wear white after Labor Day, according to celebrity stylist, Robert Verdi, via:

Overall, Verdi suggusts "[pairing] whites (whether they're jeans, a blazer, a bag) with a silhouette that is decidedly fall, like a navy velvet cigarette pant (that way it will look less summery) or a wool fedora." (Like Khloe Kardashian did below.) "For newly purchased items, choose cream and ivory colored pieces, since they're less jarring, and always opt for white, cream, and ivory-colored items in fall fabrics."

1. A white blazer: "If you're planning on wearing one in the fall, pair it with a black or gray turtleneck and skinny jeans, instead of the loose camisole and shorts you've been wearing it with all summer. This makes it more season-appropriate."
2. White boots: "They're a little risky, but if you're going to wear a pair, you'll want to show them off with a skirt to make them the focus."
3. A white belt: "This accessory mixed in with neutral-colored bottoms and a colorful top offers up a colorblocking effect, which is a very stylish move."
4. White or cream tops: "They're seasonless—always in style."
5. White pants: "These can read the wrong season unless they're in a fall fabric. You wouldn't want to wear a white silk pant in the winter, however you could pair a white denim pant with a suede shoe and that's totally acceptable."
6. White sunglasses and jewelry: "These accessories can feel too summery, but if you're traveling to a balmy location in the dead of winter, by all means wear them. Otherwise, to actually pull off white jewelry in the winter, I suggest wearing an acrylic white cuff over the wrist of a tight burnt orange or teal cashmere sweater—that to me is chic."
