All-White Looks You Can Wear After Labor Day

Wearing an all-white outfit on Labor Day weekend is a no-brainer. It is, at least in theory, the last potential heat wave we'll see. Still, there are ways to deck yourself out in #allwhiteeverything well beyond the end of August without feeling unseasonal. You just have to be willing to be a little more creative.
To help you embrace the all-white look once the temperature starts to drop, we've put together three très chic blanc outfits that can work for multiple occasions, from a day in the office to a night on the town. After all, rules were made to be broken. Ahead, the anecdotal proof.

All Day, All Night, Boho
With the right jewelry, an all-white look can be ageless and timeless. Add a splash of turquoise to a denim-heavy all-white look, for example and you've got a bit of southwestern flair that works for the city, too.

Office & Beyond
For an everyday, all-white look that's fresh but not dressy, try layering a crisp button-down under your white lace dress. This repurposes those summer frocks and makes them more versatile for year-round wear. We love the idea of switching out sandals for beat-up sneakers to make the outfit a bit more casual.

French Connection Mosaic Classic Shirt, $78, available at John Lewis; Sophie Hulme Mini Envelope Cross Body Bag, $579, available at Matches Fashion; Keepsake Reach For The Sun Mini Dress, $195, available at Collective Habit; Philippe Model 'Classic Alta' High-Top Trainers, $450, available at FarFetch; Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses, $115, available at J.

Weekend Warrior
It may still be hot, humid, and gross outside, but you’re the picture of breezy cool in this fresh twist on jeans and a tee. The barely there fabric in these skinnies by American Eagle Outfitters makes them breathable enough to wear for an afternoon of hitting up your fave local boutiques. Grab a roomy carryall to stash your new indie finds.

White At Night
Say what you will about Kimye, but their all-white looks are generally on point. Do as the power couple does (just this once) and go for a two-piece dress that will stand out on a hot night. As the temps drop, throw a chunky knit jacket on top. Add gold touches and bright lips to really pop.

River Island White Ribbed Cut-Out Crop Top, $45, available at River Island; Banana Republic Lucite Clutch, $77.99, available at Banana Republic; USLU Airlines Bright Coral Red Lipstick, $25, available at Joyus; Guiseppe Zanotti 100MM Python Printed Leather Sandals, $750, available at Luisa Via Roma; Nicholas Crossover Hem Pencil Skirt, $395, available at Intermix.
