With each end of summer comes a fashion rule: you can’t wear white after Labor Day. But in today’s world, there are no fashion rules, meaning that oft-repeated rule is nothing more than an outdated rumor. In the last year alone, white has been a major red carpet trend well-beyond the summer months with celebrities capitalizing on the clean slate to show off cool silhouettes and flashy accessories. Wearing white when the weather turns grey is a chic way to stand out and show the rebel side of your style.
Bright whites are a breath of fresh air as the temperatures cool with fall. When transitioning from breezy pickings into autumn-appropriate whites, it’s all about fabric and silhouette. Stowaway summery eyelets and linens in favor of heavier fabrics like wool, cashmere, denim, and leather.

I’m loving white chunky sweaters with white jeans… even after Labor Day. White can easily be confused as a seasonal color, but you can really wear it any season. Personally, I love this trend. Wearing white in winter is a great way to look modern and hip without having to buy anything new. Of course, celebrities know there are a few tips and tricks to wearing white appropriately in the colder winter months. The key is to mix in another color — and that color can be neutral or bold.
White paired with gray accessories:
Wear all white with a printed scarf like Olivia Palermo to help break it up:
Scarves are some of the most versatile accessories you can have in your closet.You can use them to amp up your glam, showcase your style, or complement the colors and patterns you’ve decided to rock that day.
