16 White Pieces To Wear After Labor Day, Because Nobody Tells Us What To Do

Time for an inconvenient truth: Labor Day is imminent. While a day of no work, frankly irresponsible amounts of food, and a last-minute attempt to get a tan should be met with joy, it's sullied by a notorious style rule: Yes, I'm talking about the "don't wear white after Labor Day" adage, largely perpetuated by grandmas and advice columnists. But here at Refinery29, we're fans of a different style tenant: fuck the fashion rules.
The official end of summer is already a downer — do we really need to make it worse by limiting our closets (and personal expression) because of some outdated statement? Plus, as our planet slowly roasts like a rotisserie chicken under an ever-increasing quantity greenhouse gases, late August is feeling less and less like fall. Throw in the fact that winter white is officially a thing and we're in color rebellion business.
Ahead, we've rounded up 16 pieces to consider adding to your wardrobe — today, tomorrow, or even (faux gasp!) after Labor Day.
There is a lot of product out there — some would say too much. 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, but if you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
