Rules are meant to be broken and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Around these parts, we’re all about that rebel with a cause lifestyle, so we play by our own rules. The motivational speech set aside, do you for you and let the rest fall into place. We choose to incorporate this methodology into how we style and carry ourselves as well, so all that “No White After Labor Day” is a thing of the past — rules need not apply here.

To be fair though, the Scandinavian minimalist effect has dominated the fashion industry’s psyche on and off for many seasons now. Monochromatic, all-white ensembles have been deemed chic, sophisticated, and unfussy by designers like Dion Lee, Donna Karan, Haider Ackermann, and J. Mendel. We’re on board with that methodology and screaming All-White-Everything!

We would be remiss if we didn’t up the ante by including a statement bomber jacket. We like to mix and match basics with more detailed items in order to create dimension and texture in an outfit. From top to bottom, pair a classic white t-shirt with a more avant-garde white or off-white mid-length pencil skirt.

Fashion Faux Pas: White After Labor Day, Oui or Non?

We’ve chosen a high-low skirt that wraps around the front. It lends a decidedly artful aesthetic to an otherwise basic staple. This look leans more “athleisure,” so pull on a pair of your favorite white sneakers for that Sporty Spice vibe. The crème de la crème to your all-white ensemble is a statement bomber jacket of your choosing. Go big and don’t be afraid of incorporating prints and colors to make your jacket pop.
