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!

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.

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:42 pm

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

    You lucky, lucky lady. UGH, how I wish I could wear white and not look like a blind snowman covered in sludge. You look gorgeous Candy. White definitely suits you.

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:43 pm

      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!

  3. September 18, 2017 / 9:10 am

    Looking fabulous once again, Candy! I’m not sure I can pull off all white but I love how you’ve warmed it with the beige tones!

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:43 pm

      Hey, thank you so much! #smooches

    I’m so glad white after Labor Day is no longer a big no-no! I love wearing white and your outfits look so cute!

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:44 pm

      Thank you so much Crystal. Yeah, I think those after-Labor Day fashion rules are long gone…at least for now! Thank you so much for stopping by!

  5. September 18, 2017 / 9:51 am

    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!

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:45 pm

      Thank you so much Bea. I think neutral colors are perfect for fall and can easily be pulled off with white or black.

  6. September 18, 2017 / 10:18 am

    Love the white on you you look amazing! Love using white in my photography studio also its so beautiful and soft! Fabulous images! Great blog

  7. September 18, 2017 / 10:36 am

    This outfit looks fantastic on you! I honestly can’t ever wear white! I wore a light coloured shirt yesterday and it’s already stained all over! I don’t know why I’m so messy all the time haha!

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:47 pm

      LoL, oh my. You poor Dear. I’ve been pretty lucky as to not stain my whites.

  8. September 18, 2017 / 1:07 pm

    I have the right denim, shirt and shoes, but I need a camel colored cardigan. I think this look is so good for many occasions.

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:49 pm

      I got this one from Nordstrom and I think it’s under $40. But I’m sure you can get one from practically anywhere.

  9. September 18, 2017 / 1:53 pm

    I wear white year round. That building is so cool and I love the colors.

  10. September 18, 2017 / 2:31 pm

    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.

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:52 pm

      I absolutely LOVE how detailed you are in the first sentence! Thank you so much!

    I used to wear white clothes but after I gained weight I mostly wear dark colored clothes, I love your style and you look so nice and pretty wearing white

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:53 pm

      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!!!

  12. September 18, 2017 / 3:58 pm

    Love this look! The neutrals with all-white look great – perfect seasonal transition look!

  13. September 18, 2017 / 4:00 pm

    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!

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:55 pm

      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!

  14. September 18, 2017 / 4:03 pm

    as a guy I have to say white is one of my favourites. I really like how it can enhance hair colour and skin tones.

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:56 pm

      You’re right! White definitely makes the skin look tanned. So white in the fall is absolutely perfect! Thanks for stopping by Ramon.

  15. September 18, 2017 / 5:46 pm

    Such a cute outfit! I’m loving the sweater, looks perfect for those days when there is just a slight chill in the air.

  16. September 18, 2017 / 5:55 pm

    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.

  17. September 18, 2017 / 5:58 pm

    Looking beautiful as always! I have never tried the all white look. I’ve been wanting a pair of white jeans for years though so I think now is the time

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:57 pm

      Yes, even though this is a fall post, I pretty much wear white jeans throughout winter with a sweater or turtleneck. Get yourself a pair of white jeans!

    This is such a cute outfit. I am a believer of wearing white after labor day. I love the open toe boots you have on.

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:58 pm

      Thank you so much Claudia. I think open-toe booties are my favorite!

  19. September 18, 2017 / 6:38 pm

    What a gorgeous outfit! I love the neutrals! The all-white looks so pretty with the sweater over it like that.

    • September 19, 2017 / 3:59 pm

      The cardigan (and fall booties) is the key to making it the perfect fall outfit! Thanks for stopping by Lois.

  20. September 18, 2017 / 7:35 pm

    That outfit looks amazing on you! I cannot wear white because I am a mama to two small children!

    • September 19, 2017 / 4:00 pm

      Trust me, I understand that struggle. I think when my kids were toddlers, I didn’t wear white too often!

  21. September 18, 2017 / 10:14 pm

    I love your outfit girl! I wish I felt more confident wearing white. And I love your shoes!!!

  22. September 18, 2017 / 10:52 pm

    Outfit looks great love the all white. Still a life goal to go to Diddy’s all white party lol

  23. September 18, 2017 / 10:52 pm

    You’re a brave soul to wear such bright crisp white outfits… It would be hard for me to keep that clean with two little ones! Love the style and photos ; )

    Great images!!! I still remember the argument I had with my step mom because I wanted to wear my nice white shoes after labor day! LOL!

    • September 19, 2017 / 4:01 pm

      LoL, I don’t think I own white shoes outside of sandals. More of a cream color.

  25. September 19, 2017 / 6:03 am

    White Color not usually suits on everyone.. but when i saw you in white outfits.. its reflects that its made for you only ❤
    looking splendid bae ?

    • September 19, 2017 / 4:02 pm

      You’re so sweet! Thank you so much!

  26. September 19, 2017 / 6:35 am

    I did buy a pair of white jeans and wear them with a gray jersey for a party we had a few months ago. Not good! I’m too short to wear light colors! But it looks gorgeous on you! Beautiful accessories as usual!

  27. September 19, 2017 / 7:29 am

    I Love white for all seasons. You wear it so well.

    That outfit looks so good on you! I love those shoes and that cardigan, they’re so pretty!

  29. September 19, 2017 / 8:41 am

    Wow, I didn’t think I can wear white in fall, but this looks absolutely amazing! Thank you for sharing.

    • September 19, 2017 / 4:04 pm

      I think anyone can wear any color during any season.

  30. September 19, 2017 / 9:38 am

    If I looked as fantastic in white as you do, I too would wear it year round. I actually don’t wear white. Or black for that matter. But you are killin’ it!

    • September 19, 2017 / 4:04 pm

      Why don’t you wear white OR black?!? I’m sure both would be beautiful with your skin!

      This is defintely a comfie outfit and very versatile. Thanks Shell!

    First this wall is amazing so colorful. I never thought to pair white with nude to make it work for the fall I would like to style something similar for myself.

    You look amazingggg, and loving the handbag and shoes. I wish I could wear white but it never looks quite right on me or I always attract everything that can make it get dirty within minutes of putting it on – its like a curse lol.

    You look gorgeous!
    Here in the Philippines, we have this friendly thoughts — whenever we see our friend wearing all white, we kiddingly tell her that “she is chanelling the mayor’s-wife-look” ?
    Lovely!

  37. September 19, 2017 / 9:18 pm

    I love this outfit, especially the shoes! I’ve never worn white pants because I’m always afraid I’d get them dirty (especially when I had dogs that would stand up on me). They look great on you!

    I love the contrast you did with the nude cardigan! that ankle boots are perfect and so are the sunnies

  39. September 20, 2017 / 10:56 am

    I love white, if I could, I would only wear white. Ha Ha but with two small kids, it is not going to happen, But you do look great in white though

  41. September 20, 2017 / 10:59 am

    I am not confident to wear all white any time of the year! I love that you broke this up with the tan cardigan and shoes. Super cute!

    I wish I was more comfortable trying to wear white, let alone in the fall! I am loving the all white, with a pop of some nude! I am obsessed with nudes.

  43. September 20, 2017 / 2:02 pm

    I absolutely love the outfit! I’m always weary of wearing white outside of Summer, but you really make it look great! I love the pairing it with the natural tone long sweater, it looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  44. September 20, 2017 / 4:25 pm

    I love everything about this look. I haven’t done white in fall, but maybe now I should!

  45. September 20, 2017 / 10:23 pm

    I love all white outfits! Those boots are too cute, hopefully they won’t be sold out for long.

  46. September 20, 2017 / 10:28 pm

    It’s been awhile since I wear this kind of outfit…all white! You look fabulous and snazzy. Thanks for sharing!

    This post reminds me that I have a white pair of jeans.. Hahaha. It goes to show that I am not into white jeans.

  49. September 23, 2017 / 1:41 am

    Girl!!!!!!!!!!! You look so hot, always wear white, you look so great and your hair color gets brighter with white. I love your bag and glasses too!

  51. September 27, 2017 / 10:36 am

    The place you have your photoshoot is brillant! I thought it’s so smart to do yours against a colourful wall, bringing out the white. I love white as it makes one look clean and classy!
