Let’s start by just discussing…what exactly does “A-OK” mean? Why put the “A” there? I’ve always heard people say it but I’ve never actually known what it means…Anyways, today we’re discussing why it is TOTALLY alright (maybe even encouraged?) to wear white after Labor Day. This is such an outdated rule. In the last few seasons, white has dominated fall and winter fashion, and white jeans have become a staple in tons of girls closets. So how exactly can you rock this “it” color into the cooler months? Read on to find out…
The key to wearing white in the fall and winter is to balance the look out. Even though I wore these white pants with a light pink top (last seen here), I paired it with a big chunky scarf in a traditional fall color along with brown booties. The two darker colored accents work to “anchor” the look and keep it from appearing too light and spring-y. Another tip to keep in mind is to pair your white with thicker materials. Sweaters, scarves, vests, and coats all work to create a cute but fresh fall outfit.
Some possible color combinations with white include dark grey/white/navy blue, dark brown/white/marigold (the color of the season! Based on New York Fashion Week), maroon/white/blush, and olive green/white/taupe.
I hope you enjoyed this post and feel a little more comfortable rocking white now! If you have any specific questions on how you can wear it, just leave a comment below. 🙂 And now I’m off to a very busy weekend! Homecoming is tomorrow—I’ll be posting my outfit in the coming weeks.
