August 27th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Why White After Labor Day is Definitely a “Do”

As we begin to rearrange our closets for the fall season, we will all come across certain pieces that we wish we didn’t have to give up just because there are temperature and tonal changes on the horizon. I used to agonize over putting my white booties, cream blouses and crisp white jeans away until the next year, all because of a silly fashion rule that ruled wearing white after Labor Day as a fashion faux pas. Don’t let this outdated fable rule your style anymore. See below why wearing white after Labor Day is definitely a “do!”

Nothing more classic than a crisp white button-down.
