I Still Wear White After Labor Day

Sep 17, 2018 | Fashion | 0 comments

Okay, so most of us grew up hearing that fashion faux pas, “you can’t wear white after Labor Day”. This myth has definitely evolved over time. At first it was no white, at all, after Labor Day. Over the years it turned into no white pants after Labor Day. Look ladies if you have the ability to wear white pants and look good then go for it! Who cares what month it is!!

I am here today to bust that antiquated myth. Since Labor Day was only two weeks ago I decided it was a perfect time to disprove this fashion lore. I wanted to show women that fashion rules are sometimes made to be broken. I put together this high-end white sequin blazer with a t-shirt and jeans. White can be worn throughout the year. It really just depends on the way you style it.

If you like my look keep reading to see my #OOTD! With the brands and links of where to find the same look.

To start, my white sequin blazer is from Rachel Zoe. Now, if this is just way too extravagant for you here is Linen-blend Jacket from H&M. This jacket has the same design and style, except for the sequin detail, as the Rachel Zoe blazer; for a much more reasonable price.

My blazer is definitely a high-end piece of clothing. With this outfit I decided to mix my highs and lows in my wardrobe. To create a more edgy look I paired this blazer with a graphic t-shirt and jeans. This outfit translates from day to night very easily. The t-shirt I’m wearing is sold out, but this Absolute Cult Debbie Harry Women’s Iconic Photo T-Shirt from Amazon is a perfect option. My jeans are the 10″ higher-rise toothpick eco jean with let-down hem from J.Crew.

Leopard Print Pumps

My shoes are from J.Crew but they are no longer available. In my last post I had mentioned how J.Crew’s shoe quality has changed ever since they changed ownership. These Tom Ford Leopard-Print Velvet Pumps are the closest match I could fine to mine. Since the Tom Ford’s are ridiculously priced these Steve Madden Daisie-L Pump are a good alternative.

Alexander McQueen Sunglasses & Stud Diamond Earrings

Paul Morelli Ring

I tried to keep my accessories simple, but still with a little bit of edge to match my outfit. My sunglasses are Alexander McQueen. I’m in love with the attention to detail with the skull hardware on the temples.

As for the jewelry I decided not to add too much. My diamond studs are from Von Bargen’s, and of course the ring is from Paul Morelli.
