How to Wear White After Labour Day

When it comes to antiquated rules, “no white after Labour Day” is a top outdated offender. Not only is it ok to wear white, it’s encouraged—as long as you follow a few fashionable steps to keep it suited for the season. —Jeanine Gordon


play with textures. Successfully wearing white into the fall and winter months is all about texture and fabric. Certain fabrics that scream “summer” are linen, seersucker, and cotton eyelet. A flowy white cotton sundress or wide leg linen pants are great in July, but should be retired once September hits. Instead, embrace materials and textures that evoke cosiness. Think white-toned faux fur, shearling, chunky knits and warm woolens. We love pieces like this Teddy Coat by Halogen ($164 at Nordstrom).


get creative with colour. Don’t limit yourself to bright white, which can feel summery and tropical. To create outfits that work well in the colder months, we love winter whites like ivory, cream or ecru. Make it extra chic by combining a few of these hues together for a chic monochromatic look that’s perfect for the chilly days ahead.


assess your accessories. Store your espadrilles and woven straw bags for the season and turn up the dial on accessories that slide seamlessly into cooler weather. Think boots, textured leather totes and fuzzy scarves that feel snuggly rather than summery. We love these leather boots from Zara ($159) that add a pop of white to your look without the beachy vibes.
