how to wear white jeans after labor day

The “no white after Labor Day” rule is no more, and today we can feel free to rock the white well into the cooler months. Personally I love this trend. Wearing white jeans after Labor Day is a great way to look modern and hip without having to buy anything new. Of course, there are a few tips and tricks to how to appropriately wear white after Labor Day. You just have to style them with cold weather shoes and heavier, warmer fabrics and colors. Here’s how.

I also love white jeans paired with gray. For summer, a gray tee and white jeans is a great, easy look. For fall, pair your white jeans with a chunky gray sweater. Again, the scarf and jeans make it undeniably a fall outfit.
