Forget every fashion rule you've ever heard, especially the one about not wearing white after Labor day. First of all, rules are meant to be broken. And secondly, you should wear the neutral shade always — especially when it's not summer. There are so many epic ways to wear white in the fall or winter, so I always lose it when someone says that tired old dictum. I'll wear any color I want, when I want, mmmkay?
As if you even needed more convincing to join my side of the pro #whiteafterlaborday wars, I rounded up 13 good reasons below. White dresses with cool booties, a fancy little bag covered in white flowers, distressed white jeans, a badass jacket, white caps, crop tops, chokers, and shoes — you name it, you can wear it in white.
As long as you incorporate other elements that match the outside temps like a scarf, layers, legwear, etc, you’re golden. Oh, and maybe stay away from red wine while you’re at it. Unless you have an Olivia Pope level of skill when it comes to avoiding staining anything white — then by all means, drink up. And shop these awesome winter white picks, too.
