White After Labor Day? Yes.


It’s time to hash out the annual question about the  No White after Labor Day “rule” that many of us grew up following.  I saw this graphic on Pinterest and thought it said it all:

Tips for how to make this look work for you in the “real world”:

Change out  your accessories. A rich colored handbag, leather riding boots or suede ankle booties all  help to transition white denim into your fall wardrobe.

Add some heavier seasonal items to your white. Think wool or cashmere sweaters and blazers in substantial fabrics.

Watch your fabrics. White denim or corduroy, and “winter white” pants in wool blends absolutely work. Anything linen or in light weight cotton need to be relegated to your summer wardrobe.

So, go ahead, keep those white jeans in the front center of your closet.  Need to update your white jeans? Click here to shop my favorite brands and styles.
