4 Chic Ways to Wear White After Labor Day

Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day? Personally, I think wearing white during the winter is a great way to keep things fun and free spirited. Wearing a white or off-white blazer with dark denim and killer boots definitely brightens a potentially dreary outfit. Since bright colors and white are uplifting, what are you waiting for?

Bebe's got some hot stuff this season. I've been paying close attention to their mailers and I noticed that they are carrying more refined clothing. Although many of their sizes run inconsistently, I think their jackets are fair game. This white above the knee double belted flared coat will work perfectly as a winter overcoat. The furry collar and wrists proves that this coat has a personality of its own. Furthermore, the matching colors on the jacket and fur exude a soft and elegant look. Wear this jacket with any color and you won't have to worry about looking dull. I guarantee a sexy strut in body warmer.

Looking for a New Year's dress or a great cocktail dress that will turn bodies not just heads? Check out this A.B.S white dress that has a simple high scoop neck front and a waterfall free flowing back. I love the balance. This all white, sparkly dress is a classic.

I love, love this next top from BCBG. This is similar to my favorite work shirt that I wear with all my skirts and slacks. It's simple and very versatile. It is appropriate for all occasions and works on all body types. Everyone needs a shirt like this. The tie neck top with quarter sleeves is a professional shirt and gives off a powerful, chic aura with the crispy white tailored look. White is the new black.
