When I was growing up, many of the fall fashions seemed to frustrate me. This is because September is the hottest month in California and trying to wear scarves and other fall friendly accessories did not seem realistic. The white after Labor Day rule also did not make sense to me, especially since I would most likely be going to the beach for at least a month after this holiday. I believe that transitioning your summer wardrobe into fall wardrobe is a talent in itself. When I spotted this Fashionista, I was very impressed with her flawless transition from summer to fall.
This silly style rule seems to be a bit outdated and unrealistic. I am not suggesting that you should wear a full on white ensemble, but there are a few key pieces that should not be stored away for half of the year. Many designers, such as Alberta Ferretti, Chloé and Balenciaga, are also focusing on winter whites this season. I think it also appropriate to ask why this rule is consider faux-pas when Coco Chanel wore white all year round!? There are many different ways you can wear white after Labor Day that still seems season appropriate. This Fashionista’s white dress paired with a beige sweater and neutral flats are key pieces to transition this into a chic ensemble.
There are many different ways you can wear white after Labor Day and still be fall friendly. For instance, you can add a sweater and a pair of booties to a little white dress in order to be cozy. A white blazer is a great item to keep for the fall and winter, and go great over lightweight dresses.
One Simple Change: In order to wear this dress later in the season, I would suggest booties instead of flats.
