We’ve all heard that we aren’t supposed to wear white after labor day, but in today’s fashion forward world, that simply is not true!  This rule was created way back when the upper class wanted to distinguish themselves by creating an elite set of standards that must be followed to fit in.  It’s been continued for practical reasons and seasonal tradition, but it’s not longer a faux pas.  While white might not always blend into your fall color scheme, it can be worked into your outfit in a variety of ways.  From keeping it small, to wearing it in the right fabric, it’s a completely manageable look to continue year round.

Faux Fur

Faux fur always reminds us of the cooler months–like our furry friends, we are getting layers on!  Faux is a great alternative to real fur, but with a similarly luxurious touch.  Since the vest is a statement piece keep the rest of your outfit more low key.  A beautiful cranberry top and dark denim flare are the perfect base. Keep your jewelry classic as well for a chic fall outfit.

An accessory is a great way to add white to your wardrobe without going overboard.  This crisp professional tote is perfect for the workplace.  Plus since its a more basic color it will go with anything in your fall wardrobe.  You can add the trend in your accessories from your shoes to your jewelry as well.

Mohair and leather are fabrics typically reserved for the fall and winter, so when even in white, they’ll fit right in.  Nothing says winter more than a gorgeous white sweater in a luxe fabric.  Pair it with a leather skirt and you’re set for a night out on the town.  Finish the look with a bright blue shoe as an accent color.
