{Remix Rewear Restyle} 4 Ways to Wear White After Labor Day

#remixrewearrestyle whites

Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to Remix Rewear Restyle, a weekly remix challenge to showcase how you style a specific item. My hope is to inspire you {as well as myself!} to remix items already in our closets and gain inspiration from others.

This week’s remix is a little rebellious. We’re breaking the no white after Labor Day rule. {Gasp.}

Meet the rule-breakers:

{My look: striped top + white jeans + booties} 

If you’re going to go all white, make sure you have some darker colors to anchor your pieces. For example, the black stripes and gray booties push this look into fall.

I also like to add a punch of color with bright lipstick.

{Whitney’s look: gingham + white shorts + booties}

I love how Whitney draws attention to the collar with a statement necklace and adds the booties. Fall, here we come. {Pretty please? With sugar on top?}

{Emily’s Look: whites + a blazer + cognac}

The cognac grounds Emily’s look and the striped blazer
adds the perfect amount of visual interest.

{Amy’s Look: simple white tee + statement necklace + trouser jeans}

This is a great way to dress up a plain tee! The statement necklace and bow detail on Amy’s neutral shoes make these basic pieces special.

{Alex’s Look: lace dress + dark heels}

The dark heels ground Alex’s look, and as it cools, adding a blazer or cardigan gives her tons of remixing options.
