We love the concept of an endless summer, and this labour day weekend you can dress the part of eternal sunshine in an effortless boho look perfect for the backyard barbecue or outdoor fete. Watercolour prints combine organically with cozy fall-ish cable knit (only if you get chilly) and nature-inspired accessories. This look is the perfect send-off to summer and welcome to autumn.
Don’t Wear White?
We’ve hardly abided by the “No white after labour day” rule, and with fall’s runways flaunting all-white looks, we’d say that rule has just about gone out the window. A little creamy nude cable knit cardigan lets you stay on the light side without compromising the feeling of fall, and we love the look of a knit thrown effortlessly over a pretty Paul By Paul Smith printed jumper.
Seasonal dressing only works for those very cold or very hot days, and this labour day is set to feel more like extended summertime than the first moments of September. Keep clothing light and cool, adding deeper hues in accessories like this luxe Rag & Bone wide-brim fedora hat. We need to get our hands on it, as well as these Ash Jalouse boots, which are perfect for a bare-legged Labour Day look.
