Wear white after Labor Day? Absolutely!
By Brittany Anas
Wait just one second before you go boxing up your white clothes, stashing them away until Memorial Day. OK, the white linen dress can hibernate until May. But, you’ll be surprised how your whites can be winter-proofed and transition through the seasons.
Here’s a few ways you can break the informal and stodgy “no white after Labor Day” rule. After all, a crisp white Oxford shirt or a plain white dress is like a blank canvas just begging to be accessorized with the season’s trends.
We even found some pretty white wardrobe staples at White House Black Market in the “new arrivals” section. Buy through ShopAtHome.com and you’ll find coupons and Cash Back offers. Or, try these styling tricks on white pieces already in your closet.
Pop of fall color: Whether you’ve got a white dress or a white dress shirt, add in some quintessential fall colors to give your outfit an autumn update. While classic shades of burgundy, mustard or burnt orange make up the usual fall color palette, we’re noticing teal as fall 2013’s newcomer. It’s popping up on gorgeous accessories — like this gold-tone, multi-strand bracelet or this triple marquise statement necklace that blends onyx beads with bold pops of teal.

White sheath dress: How do you wear a white dress in the fall? Easy. Just pair it with black tights and some black accessories.Of course, winter white (a warmer, beige white) is easy to wear year-round. But, another trick is to wear a longer-sleeved sheath dress — like this figure-flattering dress that is equal parts simple and stunning. To take it from the office to happy hour, just add a leather jacket.
On a jacket or sweater: Admittedly, white pants are tough to pull off in the fall and winter. That’s why we turn to white jackets and sweaters. We scouted out this white ponte knit jacket that gets a little edge with a motocross cut that just screams fall. This draped collar cover-up is perfectly chic for layering on those cooler fall days.
