When White Sheets Won't Cut It, Try This Non-Basic Bedding For Fall

If the "no white after Labor Day" rule also applies to bedding, then our current sheets may need to be tucked away with the rest of our summer possessions. But spicing up your bed for autumn also doesn't have to entail going fully dark. Instead of nixing whites altogether, we're adding subtle touches of seasonality to help our sleep spot transition into crisper weather.
We've pulled together ten finds that use soft hues, unique patterns, and varying textures to achieve fall bedding at its best — which means cozy with a bit of color. From whimsical cheetah-embellished sheets to soft yarn-stitched duvet covers to funky graphic-printed sets, these options will help you season-swap in style. Try layering any of the non-basic buys ahead with your favorite pillows and throws for a bed that looks dressed to the nines — even with some post-Labor Day whites included.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
