Fashion Don’ts Dos!: White After Labor Day
Written by: Elizabeth McGuffin
Wearing white after Labor Day has been touted as the ultimate fall fashion don’t for decades. But when you forget how and why fashion rules came about in the first place, it’s way past time to throw them out. Colors are not seasonal, just as expressing your personal style – and color preferences – is not seasonal. Fall fashion cycles back to warm, earthy hues, year after year, and while wearing these colors is a nod to the changing scenery, there are so many other ways to acknowledge and celebrate the season through what you wear.
Embracing the new fashion season doesn’t have to mean rushing out and buying the latest trends or “it” colors either. Look at the new season as an opportunity to wear your summer whites in a new way. By remixing your summer styles for the changing weather and trends, you’ll stretch your wardrobe and better utilize the pieces you already own. And that’s a definite fashion do! See how these bloggers layer on the warmth and sprinkle on the spice in their stylish autumn whites!
