What To Wear

Wearing White After Labour Day Is Cool This September

Although wearing white after Labour Day was once frowned upon and viewed largely as a sartorial faux pas, snowy and ivory shades are now perfectly chic even as the weather changes. On the Fall 2018 runways, white dresses and all-white ensembles created an eye-catching statement which easily works for the upcoming cooler days. Take your inspiration from the season’s catwalks and master autumn’s bright white trend for yourself today. 


On the Valentino runway, a long white tunic with a pleated bodice was paired with white trousers for a professional, chic ensemble. This monochromatic outfit stole the spotlight, while a pair of dangling earrings completed this look of the day.


At Jacquemus, the flowing shirtdress reigned supreme, proving that simplicity can sometimes be the order of the day. This silky, floor-length dress is an example of a look that can work for either business or weekend. Meanwhile, the contrasting pastel blue mini handbag and orange suede strappy heels added an accessorizing finish.


The Chloé catwalk put a spin on the ladylike white dress in the form of racy lace, sheer panels and strategic cut-outs that wrapped up the style. For anyone who wants an alternative to the traditional little white frock, this edgy and unconventional design proves wearing white after Labour Day can be versatile.
