PSA: Yes, you can wear white after Labour Day

By: Alexandra Donaldson

Whoever said you can't wear white after Labour Day was seriously mistaken. Add this light, bright and crisp colour to your fall and winter wardrobes with these simple tips.

We all know how the old fashion rule goes, but rules—as they also say—are meant to be broken. Throw caution to the wind (and your black clothing to the back of your closet) and wear white after Labour Day. Here’s how.

1. Keep your plain white tees and button-downs in rotation

The easiest way to wear white after Labour Day? Not taking your favourite white items out of your wardrobe rotation. This means keeping your white t-shirts, button-downs and blouses on well into fall and winter.

2. An all-white look is always chic

All-white works well with the summer sun—but is just as statement-making in the cooler months. Try playing with texture and proportion for a fresh, fall feel.

3. White shoes add unexpected interest

Not sure you want to rock white head to toe? No problem—just stick with the toe part. Clean, white shoes are an unexpected way to ground your work-wear or your weekend uniform.

4. Curl up with an oversized white knit

If all else fails, make sure to pick up a cozy white or cream knit and live it in all autumn long. The colour feels crisp enough to pair with trousers for the office, casual enough for your weekend brunch, and cozy enough to wear by the fireplace.
