Not wearing white after Labor Day is a silly fashion rule you're ready to break

Hey y'all, we're happy to say it is 2017 and there are so many antiquated fashion rules you need to be breaking, like, yesterday. Your shoes don't have to match your belt, mixing prints and patterns is a total "yes," and black and navy totally look good together. And, for the love of God, you can — and should — wear white after Labor Day.

Still skeptical? We've come up with over half a dozen ways to make white look good all year long, and in any fashion season. If the celebs can do it, so can we.

1. Pair white with leather

There's nothing that screams fall more than leather. So why not do as Kim Kardashian did and rock a white turtleneck tank (also very autumn appropriate) with a pair of black leather pants?

There's no denying the fact that white is one of Olivia Palermo's favorite colors. The socialite and style icon wears it very well here, tossing a brown fur vest over the top of her wintry white suit. Not a fan of pantsuits? Try a white faux fur vest styled with a plain black long-sleeved top (à la Palermo), a pair of skinny jeans and some pointy-toe heels or suede boots.
