Rebel Rebel

I live in the South, where a woman walking down the street wearing white after Labor Day is about as taboo as a woman walking down the street naked. But our neighbors up north say it's okay, as long as it's done right. Here's to my rebel moment.

Scarf-I made it!

And here are some of my tips for wearing white after Labor Day and makin' it look good!

-Pair your white with a bold Fall color. Avoid pairing it with pastels-think jewel tones or primary colors instead.
-Stay away from Linen-it's almost always a summery fabric, especially in white.
-Use layers in your outfit to give it a more cooler-season feel.
-Pair your white with black and gray to give it a geometric color-blocked look instead of a bright summery one.
-Wear shoes that make a Fall or Winter statement-no open toes! Think booties, boots, or close-toed pumps.
