How to Wear White After Labor Day
I spent all summer long searching for the perfect pair of white jeans to wear with all my multi-colored tank tops. Then, the question becomes what do I snow? I did not want all my hard-fought ever to be in vain. I was not ready to retire the jeans that I worked so hard for. The tried and true rule of not wearing white after Labor Day is now a thing of the past and I set out to shatter the myth that it is not with abandon. The most difficult thing about wearing white in the winter is that depending on how you style it, the outfit can appear to be very springlike rather than being fashion forward. To combat the risk of looking like I was ready for a spring picnic, I opted to pair the white jean with a fall pattern of brown and white. In this case, the top is one I have had in my closet for some time. I love it because of the cross tie at the neckline. I always get stopped when I wear it.
The key to pulling off white with flair is to choose a fall color to pair it with. This will anchor the piece and then keep it current. The other big key is to keep your whites bright. Nothing will kill a look faster than a dull pair of white jeans. Make sure that you properly bleach your whites after every third wash. This will keep them bright for life and keep you from having to replace them once a season. For a long time I avoided white because I was afraid it would appear dirty and stained. However, now I scotchguard all my whites before wearing them and bleach after wearing them and they look new every time. The morale of the story is that if done right, you can pull those white jeans off year round and get more bang for your buck.
