Labour Day: Wear White!

Do you know that you can wear white after labour day? When I was a teen, it was proclaimed that you couldn’t, not that I listened to the “Fashionistas” back in the 80’s. Nowadays there really are no rules when it comes to fashion – and this holds true with the tradition of not wearing white after Labour Day weekend. 

My concern though with wearing white clothes is keeping them white and not greyish white. From food to deodorant stains, wearing white can be asking for trouble. Thankfully OxiClean™ White Revive™ Powder—fabric care winner of the 2015 Best New Product Awards—is specially formulated to maintain and revive your whites.

Here are 5 tips on ways you can say goodbye to “no white after Labour Day” and incorporate white into your wardrobe this fall and even into winter!

Five ways to wear white after Labour Day

1.      Mix and match – pair white statement pieces with neutral colours like grey or tan to tone down the summer vibe for a sophisticated fall look

2.      Cool winter chic – stick to all white accessories like white cashmere gloves or a cable knit scarf to elevate your look as the months get colder

3.      Say yes to the shearling – from boots to jackets to capes, shearling makes an appearance every fall. Incorporate a pop of white in your transitional wardrobe with shearling accents

4.      The not-so-blue jean – to balance out the summery feel of a pair of white denim jeans, pair with a distressed leather jacket in dark brown or a tan trench over coat for a more polished look

5.      Not over overalls – the 90s staple is back with a vengeance! A perfect transitional piece as the days get cooler, mix a pair of white overalls with runners and your favourite dark cropped jacket for a cool urban fall look
