Shop Your Closet: How to Wear White After Labor DayI have to admit, I never think of this "rule." It just doesn't occur to me-from winter white to patterned white, white is just like black in my mind: seasonless. But, I'm often reminded that folks do feel obligated to relegate their white clothes to the summer months. I'm here to change that.
Recently, Hannah from Love Always Hannah recruited me to help her meet her goal of no shopping for six months. We had a Virtual Closet Consultation over video the other night, and we made an important discovery together: she didn't feel confident wearing white after Labor Day. So, we've decided to pair up over the coming months to tackle that old feeling: "I have nothing to wear..." despite a full closet. Starting with bringing her whites into the fall/winter seasons is an easy way to shop less (or not at all!) but still feel excited to get dressed in the morning.
Looking at the white clothes in Hannah's closet in a different light means that she'll be less tempted to buy new clothes for the fall and winter, and she'll look gorgeous. Win for the No Shopping team! Here's what I suggested she do. Check out her plan not to shop for 6 months here.

Go with Fall's "Modern Romantic" trend.Think full skirts, pink or burgundy lips, tights, and tie-up or menswear shoes. Since white is a neutral that plays well with patterns, it's an easy way to keep white in rotation for the fall while also wearing some of the more "dressy" skirts in your closet. Don't have any? Try a white shirt or sweater over a dress with a belt!
