Labor Day Weekend: Bring on the White!

“No white before Memorial Day and no white after Labor Day”- a fashion rule we’ve all heard year after year. Well, it’s Labor Day weekend and although we don’t necessarily follow the rule, we are stocking up on our favorite white hot summer looks before we pile on layers of cashmeres, leathers and knits for fall. All season we’ve lived in our laid-back preppy white shorts, our casual, chic white skinny jeans, and our favorite little white lace dress- so break them out this weekend and get ready to wear them one last time before summer’s end. Here’s how we are styling summer’s best bright white pieces this Labor Day:

Saturday Night Out

This weekend, take your little white dress from day to night and from summer into fall. Add a few glam accessories and a blazer for a night out. We love a pair of strappy black heels and edgy extras to put a twist on the feminine lace. Take the look further into fall by layering up with a cashmere cardigan, a leather or fur vest, and adding black opaque tights and boots.

Sunday Funday

For a casual Sunday, whether you’re brunching with friends, spending the day with the family, or enjoying the afternoon around town, this is the perfect day to wear your white shorts one last time. Pair them with a chambray shirt and pretty gold accessories for an effortlessly stylish look.

Labor Day Monday

Celebrate Labor Day in style and rock your favorite white jeans that you’ve worn all summer. Wear them with a festive top in blue or red and accessorize with fall neutrals. Bring your white jeans into fall by pairing them with boots and a chunky knit sweater.

Style is all about taking risks. So wear your whites this Labor Day weekend, pile on the layers, and dare to wear your whites all season long. After all, what’s fashion without a little rule breaking anyways?

Forget the Fashion Rules! Volume II

This may be a tough one for many people to let go of, but I will still do my best…

Fashion Rule #2: Don’t wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.

White is a fabulous neutral. It is literally the epitome of “fresh and clean,” it goes with everything, it makes one look tan, and it is the coolest color to have on one’s body on a hot and steamy day. What’s not to love?! And why would one want to limit its use?

Well, you don’t have to anymore. If we were to be graced with a beautiful – and warm – day either before Memorial Day or after Labor Day, please feel free to don your “summer whites.”

Also, white denim can be used well into the fall. It makes for such a nice stark contrast when tucked into dark chocolate suede boots and pairs incredibly well with a plaid menswear shirt and a classic navy blue blazer.

Finally, when winter arrives, try out a “winter white” coat or jacket in order to break up your wardrobe of dark and gloomy neutrals.

Hip-hip-hooray! for white year-round!

Don’t stop reading now! There are still two more rules to be broken…
