OK, real talk–what are you wearing for your socially distanced Labor Day plans? From picnic to pool party we have got you covered. I used to get stressed that I had to frantically wear all my white pieces before the door closed after Labor Day. But we don’t follow those outdated fashion rules. I mean they tell you not to wear white after Labor Day and then they start marketing Winter Whites to you. We see you 90s editorial team. White is always classic– it feels fresh, sophisticated, flirty, clean and plays well with denim and black (which is basically my entire wardrobe). These looks are super versatile–from relaxed work from home (or work from Hamptons) to a boozy brunch or a day out on the boat you will look effortlessly cool. These pieces are also a good investment to get ready for resort season. Here’s our Top 10 classic crisp whites:
