How to Style All White for Fall

How to Style All White for Fall




Warning: Photo Overload! Just kidding. I had such a great time with this photo shoot that it was hard to choose just 10-12 photos for this post. Instead there are 15.

Now…In the ‘Leave It to Beaver’ days of strict fashion rules, wearing white post-Labor Day was considered a huge no-no. But then again, black was once only proper for mourning, and denim was only acceptable if you were mining for gold or maybe repairing someone’s carriage.  But thank the good Lord times have changed. Especially the antiquated notion that you can’t wear white after Labor Day.

The truth is you can wear white any time to the year/365 days a year. I think white jeans should be a fall staple just as much as it is during the summer…but perhaps with a few less rips or none at all.

Here I paired my white jeans and tee with other fall staples: neutral-colored long cardigan and booties. Ithink these two colors together say ‘I’m not yet ready for summer to end but still looking forward to fall.’ During the day when the temps are still warm, the cardigan can be taken off while still looking stylish. But the cardigan is perfect for those chilly evenings and nights. This would also look really cute with white denim shorts. But only for the beginning of fall days, September and October. I think any later in the year wouldn’t be appropriate due to the temps…unless you live in Florida!

What do you think? Do you wear white after Labor Day? Or do you feel doing so is strictly a no-no? Please do tell!

Thank you so much for reading. And as always, have a beautiful day.

    The white looks so good on you. I love that you paired it with natural tone instead of a bright pop of color. You really allowed the white to be the star of the outfit. Now you ,must tell me what is your secret to keeping whites white. I always have a fear of wearing white sitting down and *GASP* walking around with dirt on my but then until I’m able to chnage.

      I don’t really have any secrets to keeping whites clean. My whites just kinda happen to stay white…great luck I suppose!

      Awww, thank you so much! I think if you add any color ‘fall-colored’ cardigan to downplay the white, you could pull it off. Give it a try!

    You look fabulous in those colors! I love the outfit you create and you made me seriously rethink on the neutral light color, I always thought this wrong, because it does look amazing! And those shoes, I can’t even tell you I love those shoes!

    I love the contrast of textures; the nubbiness of the cardi against the sleek tee. It’s a great outfit, you look well in it and oh yes, totally loving the bag! I can see how you had trouble picking out photos–cool background and you photograph beautifully.

      Oh Hunni, just because you have a little weight on you doesn’t mean you can’t wear white. Let me tell you, the key is the cardigan! If you want to wear white, DO IT!!! Don’t let weight stop you!!!

    Those booties are to die for. I love how they look! I’m sure they aren’t winter appropriate since your toes would freeze off, but they sure do look gorgeous!

      You would be surprised Dawn. I wore peek-a-boo booties last year quite often and my toes didn’t get cold. But that could be because we had a pretty mild winter. I don’t think I would try wearing them in the North!

    Good call on the taupe cardigan, and pairing it with white jeans! That way you will be free to sit down and not have to worry. I love a good all-white outfit. So fresh no matter the season.
