4 Elegant Ways to Wear Ivory After Labor Day

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

--By Kim Moshtaghi

In honor of Labor Day, I wanted to feature ivory-colored clothing since wearing white is supposedly a sin after this specific holiday. Although I don’t believe wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion no-no, let’s look at white’s alter ego ivory.

Ivory, the color of an elephant’s tusk, exudes luxury and timeless elegance. It’s a neutral color that you can wear all year round. Today’s features are all from shopbop.com. These are all tailored to perfection and geared for the fashion enthusiast.

As the weather begins to cool, we must gear towards items like chunky, well-made sweaters. This turtleneck has thick braids going down the middle and braid accents on the shoulder. The extra design gives this classic sweater a stand out look. This sweater is made from 100% wool and it will keep you warm and cozy while looking phenomenal. Pair with all sorts of clothes with its amazingly versatile color!

Love Ralph Lauren ads? Then you’ll adore this stretchy wool pant from Thakoon. This slimming pant is a great fall piece for the closet. It goes well with the upcoming season’s boots. This pant can be a daytime casual look that you can easily transform to a sexy nighttime look with a couple key transitional pieces.

If you need something a bit more airy for the fall, then the wide leg pant is your ticket to sophistication and class. I can’t wait to get my legs into this pleated pant.

This is one of the most flattering looks on the right body type. If you are short and petite, this may be a harder pant to pull off unless you have long legs. However, sometimes sky-high heels can help you solve that issue. I would definitely purchase this one if this style fits your body type because its cut right and designed structurally perfect.

Sometimes you can’t replace a little swing skirt with a pant. For those evenings, take ivory into the event with this gorgeously hip Moschino skirt. I am very biased when it comes to Moschino because it was one of the first designer splurges I made in high school. Trust me, it surely doesn’t disappoint. This pleated airy skirt is only left in three sizes.
