Five Ways to Wear White after Labour Day

While I can’t say there are no rules when it comes to fashion {I’m looking at you, socks with sandals!}, they are some that constantly float around that I really don’t agree with.

For instance, the tradition of not wearing white after Labour Day weekend. I simply don’t get it.

I think white is a classic wardrobe colour that can be worn anytime of the year, even in the Winter. I wouldn’t pass up an oversized warm sweater, even if it’s white! In the same token, I’d wear a summery ocean blue all year long too. 

If anything, a concern when wearing white is keeping them white – and not a silly rule that it’s only a colour for a certain time of year. Wearing white can be asking for trouble, due to it’s strong gravitation for stains like deodorant and foods. .

Five Ways to Wear White after Labour Day


  1. Mix and match – pair white statement pieces with neutral colours like grey or tan to tone down the summer vibe for a sophisticated fall look
  2. Cool winter chic – stick to all white accessories like white cashmere gloves or a cable knit scarf to elevate your look as the months get colder
  3. Say yes to the shearling – from boots to jackets to capes, shearling makes an appearance every fall. Incorporate a pop of white in your transitional wardrobe with shearling accents
  4. The not-so-blue jean – to balance out the summery feel of a pair of white denim jeans, pair with a distressed leather jacket in dark brown or a tan trench over coat for a more polished look
  5. Not over overalls – the 90s staple is back with a vengeance! A perfect transitional piece as the days get cooler, mix a pair of white overalls with runners and your favourite dark cropped jacket for a cool urban fall look

This is a compensated post yet as always, opinions are my own.




  1. I’m with Ali P (comment above) on this. I’m a magnet for dirt if I wear white.

  2. I am totally with you on wearing white after labour day. Although, I try not to when I’m around my dog, since it’s guaranteed to get paw printed 😉
