The antiquated no-white-after-Labor-Day rule appears to have originated in the late 19th century, when white was considered only proper for summer vacation attire (before bare arms and legs were appropriate, color and fabric were often the only difference between seasonal clothing). After Labor Day became a federal holiday, it unofficially signaled the end of the summer and vacations, meaning there was no longer a need to wear vacation clothing—so all white clothing was put away until the next year. Darker color clothing was a signal for the end of summer and a return to work.
Thankfully, somewhere between then and now, this arbitrary fashion rule has become outdated. Fashion and lifestyle have evolved and there are many more ways to keep cool in the summer besides lightweight white pieces. Lucky for us, that means we get to wear our favorite white pieces year round. Take a look at some of the most chic ways to wear white after Labor Day this year!
When updating your fall wardrobe, pick up a cozy cable knit sweater in white or cream.
A white denim jacket brings a fresh perspective to a those gloomy fall days.
Blazers are the perfect transition piece. Dress down a white blazer by pairing it with jeans and sneakers.
Add a trendy pair of white wide-leg pants or denim into your fall wardrobe rotation.
Don’t pack away your silky slip dresses just yet. Layer a blazer or an oversized sweater to get more wear out of them.
Dare to wear an all-white outfit with dark accessories for a chic autumn look.
This season, swap out your track pants and wear cargo pants instead. With this utilitarian piece, you can never go wrong with neutral-colored clothing. Throw on a black, white or nude-colored top and you’re good to go!
But if you’re looking to get bonus fashionista points, look no further. Below, we share six looks for styling your cargo pants!
For those of you who have been indulging in co-ord outfits, dip into the trend with a cargo set!
Keep the athleisure vibes going strong by styling your camo cargo pants with a sports bra or bralette.
When it comes to styling colorful pieces with your cargo pants, opt for muted colors like navy or forest green.
For a more relaxed look during fall, throw on a chunky sweater over a pair of cargo pants.
Cargo pants aren’t just for daytime! Wear them with a statement-making crop top for a fashion-forward going-out look.
Step out of your comfort zone with an all-over cargo piece like this overall.

Like all unexpected styles that catch new trend waves, tie dye has been elevated with modern accents, making it not only wearable but crave-worthy. Did you ever think that you would crave tie dye in your wardrobe? If not, you will after seeing how to do tie dye for 2018 and beyond.
Take a look at some of the best ways to wear the updated tie dye trend:
