Though not the easiest to pull off, white is one of the most amazing colors when done right. Most think that the “No White After Labor Day” rule still holds true, but in 2011, I can tell you that mantra is dated. White can be worn whenever you choose, so treat it just like your other favorite neutrals.
Jennifer Lopez and Arlenis Sosa are showing us just how it can be done, both rocking white dresses. Jennifer covers Vanity Fair’s September 2011 issue, truly showing that she has no plans of slowing down for the rest of the year. She wears a glamorous tie-neck dress with a plunging neckline, giving us all the inspiration we need for Fall. She also rocks a long white fur in the fashion spread.
Arlenis wears a white bandage dress with gold studs and cut-out detailing on Arise Magazine’s newest issue. I love the sensuality of the ensemble and it is a perfect piece to put in your fall wardrobe.
Here are three pieces you can buy now to help you wear white for Fall:
The perfect button-down shirt is a must-buy each season. Equipment makes some of the best around and the Signature Sleeveless Shirt ($188) is super versatile, whether under a blazer or over a sweater. I love the whimsy of Isaac Mizrahi’s accessories and the Draper Necklace ($880) is just the statement piece you need for the season. Nothing says chic like a white dress: try 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Draped Wrap Dress ($575) with over-the-knee boots or tights.
