{Why I Will be Wearing White After Labor Day}

Austin Blogger DTKAustin shares why you should all be wearing white after labor day with Chicwish.

Labor Day is next Monday and I know there is STILL the stigma that you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day. I’m here to tell you why that rule should no longer be relevant. Times have changed guys and it is absolutely irrelevant to have a rule that disallows you to only wear a certain color during specific months. Let’s just say, you can wear whatever you want to wear whenever you want to wear it. Be the person that breaks those silly fashion rules, trust me people are going to love you for it. I mean what is fashion if you abide by rules??

So, what’s wrong with wearing white after labor day? Nothing. Let’s be real, winter whites are some of the best trends around for cooler temps. White is a great color to be wearing year round, especially during the winter. I guarantee that you’ll be seeing more and more winter whites once it starts getting chilly out. This top from ChicWish is a great example of rocking white after Labor Day. I know I’m wearing it prior to Labor Day but you’ll definitely see more white on me as the winter months approach. I’ve listed a few white tops that are perfect to transition into Fall, especially perfect for our Texas Fall. Just click the item to shop directly.

Have y’all ever been shopping and found a top that literally has everything you love all in one? That’s exactly how I felt about this one. Corny, I know but it is so hard for me to find great fitting tops. First, the length was a huge plus! As you all know, I have a really long torso and I’m pretty busty so most tops are super short on me. Ideally, I love wearing longer tops with leggings or skinny jeans in the Fall and this top was perfect! I’ve also been loving OTS (off-the-shoulder) tops lately and not only is this the perfect OTS, it has the cutest ruffle details.

I love the button details in the front too BUT if you are busty then order a size up OR order the same size you normally wear, just plan to wear the top backwards with the buttons down the back. I first shot this top with the buttons in the back but used some Hollywood Tape (very strong double sided tape) and taped the areas that were pulling. That worked perfectly and was a fraction of the price of getting it tailored. I’m sure a lot of y’all are wondering what type of bra to wear with this top. You can easily go strapless, wear a bralette or even wear pasties. The white top is pretty sheer but if are wearing nude undergarments you should be good to go.

These gorgeous heels I’m wearing are perfect if you are looking for a pair of heels that will last you season after season. Not only are they perfect for transitioning into Fall, the color and patent leather is perfect for cooler temps. I normally don’t wear patent as much in the summer but since we’re almost into September I pulled these babies out to dress this look up. If you haven’t heard of M.Gemi, listen up. They are a company that still honors handcrafting everything by hand. Also, if you order from their website there is a 2 minute fit consult to make sure that you are getting the perfect size for the shoes that you order. They even offer free shipping AND free returns so if your shoes feel a little too small or big you can return them and get the size that fits you perfectly.

Top – Chicwish (Comes in Black too!) // Jeans – AYR // Shoes – M.Gemi

Handbag – Henri Bendel // Sunglasses – Nordstrom

    I never understood that rule. Maybe it’s supposed to be no white pants after Labor Day? But then white pants still work great in fall. I usually ditch them when it starts to snow, because dirty slushy snow and white don’t mix. Love this top! It’s definitely great year round!
