What to Wear

While Labor Day has come and gone marking the informal end of summer, the heat was not taken with it. Traditionally, we are meant to put away our summer wardrobe and break out our fall clothes, but when the thermometer still reads 90 degrees, I think we all find this a little hard to do. Not wearing white after Labor Day is one of the most well-known fashion rules, but rules are meant to be broken right? Or at least bent. With hot weather sticking around sometimes until October here in Boulder, it’s hard not to continue wearing a light wardrobe at a minimum to keep us from sweltering on the way to class. So while the heat stays, as will our respective attire.

This Fashionista pulls off a great casual day look while not appearing to break any fashion faux pas. Wearing an all white outfit can be a daring move, running the risk of looking maybe too much like you’re on your way to The Hamptons. By following this Fashionista’s footsteps and adding a slightly tinted piece of clothing, you can balance your white outfit while still maintaining the lightness of it. Her choice of a loose shirt also retains her relaxed feel while the sheerness of it allows for an additional pop of color with a magenta bralette. Wearing an oversized top is an excellent way to stay cool in the heat and create contrast for smaller bottoms. Additionally, creating an all white outfit that is easy going versus more formal draws less attention to the statement of it. This Fashionista’s outfit is a great look for that lazy Sunday or just a casual day hanging out with friends.

One Simple Change: This outfit is the perfect template to add big statement accessories, such as a collection of colorful bangles or a unique clutch. By adding a statement piece, this outfit could be pulled together for more of a polished look for class.
