How to Wear White After Labor Day

There may only be a few more weeks left in summer, but only an idiot would give up her white clothes because of some outdated rule.​ Inspired by some of our favorite street style images, here's how to continue wearing white into late summer, fall, and winter.

A white furry coat may not be the easiest thing to wear, but those white ankle boots? They work with everything from cropped wide legs to black skinny jeans.

Layer a pair of a culottes under the white shirt dress you wore all summer and you've got the perfect early-fall look.

Head-to-toe white looks less summery when grounded with a black leather jacket.

Once the temperatures drop swap out tank tops and body suits for a chunky knit sweater.

Still love off-the-shoulder tops? Try wearing yours under a pair of overalls.

Double down with two pieces in the stark shade: a floor-length coat layered over a thick sweater. Wear the combo with jeans to create a polished, off-duty look.

Give your white T-shirt an instant upgrade by slipping it under a silk dress, then pairing the look with a bold wide-brim hat that feels especially fall-appropriate.

Take your go-to white trousers into fall by pairing them with a heavy-gauge jacket that is decidedly of the season.

Steal a page from this woman's style handbook and team a white vest with jeans and boots. (Then layer a turtleneck underneath when it really starts to get cold.)

A cotton white dress may scream summer, but white sunglasses work no matter the season.

An oversize sweater adds weight to the gauzy dress you thought could only be worn on the beach.

Whether you take a more feminine or menswear-inspired approach, your favorite white blouse works when worn with pencil skirts, flight pants, and more.
