Just because Labor Day weekend has come and gone doesn’t mean you have to observe the old cliché of refusing to wear white after Labor Day. While it is true that winter may not be the best time of year to run around in white pants day after day, it is the perfect time of year for incorporating white into your wardrobe with strategic pieces.
White Pea Coats
The quintessential snow bunny is always depicted in a flurry of white. White snow is a must, and the snow is always coupled with a white hat or a white coat. Couple the vividness of winter white with the classic styling of a pea coat to up your charm factor during the darkest days of the year. A white pea coat is going to layer nicely over both jeans and trousers as well as many dresses.
White Boots or Booties
One of the main reasons people avoid white pants in the winter is because of the discoloration that will happen to the hem of a pant when snow and slush is on the ground. However, a boot or a bootie is easily wiped clean if the elements are encountered negatively. A white shoe adds a fun contrast to a dark pant, especially when paired with a lighter shirt and coordinated accessories.
hite Silk and Satin Shirts
The sheen and texture of satin and silk provide the perfect complement to the eye catching power of a bold white shirt. A white silk or satin shirt is perfect for the workplace when a dark pant is worn and classic jewelry and shoes are used to complement the classy garment.
White Cable Knit Sweaters
White cable knit sweaters are an exceedingly practical way to add a bit of white to your winter. Cable knits are among the warmest available and it is difficult to go wrong with a sweater in the winter.
A White Beret
A white beret is a fun way to incorporate a piece of head gear into your wardrobe. The beret remains a highly stylish wardrobe accompaniment and is extremely versatile when it comes to putting together an outfit. Either a vivid white beret or a cream color would work well year round but particularly in the winter.
These five clothing options will keep you wearing white well after Labor Day.
