Chic AF in White After Labor Day

Chic AF in White After Labor Day

I’m currently sticking my tongue out to whoever thought it was okay to ban wearing white after Labor Day.  Like, no fam, white is the bees knees and I’ll continue wearing it wherever and whenever I please, thank you very much.  Come on – winter whites, anyone?  They’re freaking beautiful.  So here I am, exactly a week after the date in questioning, feeling chic AF in my white and blush ensemble.  In fact, I was quite excited to find that this top was absolutely ideal for early fall with its longer sleeves and layered peplum.  Chicwish nailed it with this blouse, creating a silhouette that’s ladylike and luxurious, while also incredibly effortless.

Alright, so maybe the white after Labor Day rule was created because, if you think about it, white helps you stay cool in the sweltering sunshine.  In a 20th century summer, if you were wealthy enough, you could wear the colorless tone somewhere posh (say, the Hamptons) rather than messing up your digs in the grime of a city (say, New York City).  However, Labor Day was the symbol of summer ending, and whether you were heading back to school or work, you’d opt for a darker shade, so as not to showcase the dirt on your clothing while in the heart of the city.  (Read more about this here)

Luckily, we’re no longer in the 20th century, and though the cities are still sometimes grimy, they’re not nearly enough to wreck our bright white outfits.  So come one, come all, and buy up all the whites you can see, because you’ll be donning those year-round with ease!  You’ll notice a darker vibe to my blog come winter, when black is truly the easiest to grab from the closet on a frigid morning, pre-coffee.  However, what you won’t notice is the disappearance of white and it’s sister shades like cream, blush, and tan!  This top from Chicwish truly is the best of white (and you can see my other favorite right here that I wore in FL).  Rather than sticking with a plain white T this autumn, how about something with a little more … POW?!

    I actually didn’t realize that about white in the summer but now it makes sense! I’m all about breaking the rules and wearing white whenever. Especially if I owned that gorgeous top!

I would totally wear white and this look after Labor Day hahha we are rebels! The details on your blouse is beautiful and the pearls on those shoes totally complete the outfit.

    I think, even in the cities, at times, whites, tans, linens, & silks were worn due to the lack of air conditioning. Then as fall approached people returned to their wools & other hardier, warmer fabrics. We now live in such controlled environments that our material choices are almost more of tradition, habit, & preference. Great location, Steph!

    Haha babe, how I’ve missed reading your posts as I’ve been too busy. I love it how you give the middle finger to everyone still living by an obscure 20th century rule made up to divide rich and poor and as someone who always says screw conventions I applaud you. And then there’s always dry cleaning… You look stunning as usual and returning to your blog made me smile!
