We all know that fashion “rules” are the most fun when they’re broken, and the supposed forbidden-ness of wearing white after Labor Day might be one of our favorite stuffy and antiquated conventions to flout. (Because there are so few restrictions in how we dress ourselves in 2019, you may even accuse us of clinging to this passé adage in order to maintain something that we can cherish in disregarding. Not like we’re psycho-analyzing or anything.)
No matter the complex psychology at play, we love to stomp our feet and refuse to be boxed in by any kind of sartorial restriction, because nobody — and we mean nobody! — tells us how to outfit ourselves. And if we have even a slight inkling that we not be allowed to wear this color after summer’s end, you better believe we are definitely going to wear it. So much so that we rounded up 19 pieces for you to incorporate into your fall wardrobe, whether or not you still consider donning white after the end of August an act of rebellion.
