Wearing White After Labor Day

My friend Stacee called me the other day and asked about wearing white after Labor Day.  She specifically wanted to know about white jeans.  Now the old rule of thumb was absolutely no white pants post Labor Day, but these days, white is more acceptable as long as you know how to pull it off.

Rule #1
Do not wear flip flops or sandals with the white jeans.  You need to pair the pant with boots to keep them from looking too summery.

Rule #2
Do not wear white linen!  This is a huge no no since linen is such a warm weather fabric, pairing it with white is definitely something you should only wear at the beach.  Stick with jeans.  Trust me.

Rule #3
Keep the top balanced with a chunky sweater, scarf, or chambray shirt to off set the summery white color in the jean. 

My go to Fall white jeans look?

You can't go wrong this time of year pairing the white jeans with your chambray top you've had since Spring.  When the weather gets cooler, layer a chunky knit sweater to give this look longevity.  Add your go to boots, top off with a scarf and you'll get another season's wear out of those favorite jeans.

Do you like the idea of wearing white past Labor Day?


  1. Such an informative post. I totally agree with you about the footwear. Boots with white pants is a great option for fall. Love these pictures.

    I would love for you to stop by my blog and check out my latest outfit post.

  2. I think the white jeans look fabulous with boots. I myself, do not wear white jeans, because I feel like a marshmallow in them. I blame it on my sturdy legs.
