With the conclusion of summer comes a bit of a closet overhaul. You’ll leave a few swimsuits and rashguards out for those fall getaways, of course. You’ll dig out your denim. You may even pull out your sweaters. You’ll definitely keep your Cabana Life dresses in the closet—those can definitely be accessorized for fall. Should you put away your white jeans, rashguards and beach pants, though?
If you hide them away because of an outdated fashion concept, you’re missing out.
HOW THE NO WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY RULE BEGAN
It’s obvious that wearing white in the summer will keep you cooler than wearing black. Because ladies back in the day didn’t wear shorts or tank tops, they had to switch to lighter colors and thinner fabrics in the summer. When the colder months came around, they’d naturally go back to darker colors and warmer materials.
At some point, those who considered themselves part of the elite social class decided that they’d make this a fashion rule.
THE EVOLUTION OF FASHION
Does the guideline still apply? Of course not. Fashion has evolved. We live in a time during which beachwear can be worn to go shopping, after all. Rashguards are the new basic T-shirt, and a shirtdress can be worn as a layering piece all winter long.
HOW TO WEAR WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY
Many of the Cabana Life prints have bold designs on a white background. There’s no need to hide these in the attic all winter!
Here’s how to make the most of your white clothes after Labor Day:
- Pairing white with denim is always a solution.
- Add white booties to swim leggings or a sun protective dress.
- Ground your white clothing with a black leather jacket.
- Swap your tank for a chunky sweater.
- Slip a white rashguard under a pretty floral dress.
- Wear white joggers with a heavy-gauge jacket.
You don’t have to leave your white clothing at the beach. Let it shine with thicker fabrics and more layers. Plus, adding boots to anything makes it perfect for the fall, right?
