Wearing white after Labor Day is the best fashion rule to break

We're not sure who made up the rule that you can't wear white after Labor Day, but we do know that we're ready for this rumor to die once and for all. Far beyond the dogs days of summer, we've come up with seven great reasons to rock white all year long (as if you needed an excuse to break all the fashion rules).

Hey, the celebs are doing it -- so at least you know you're in good company:

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? This outfit is perfect for late September or early October, when the weather's just starting to cool off and you don't quite need a jacket.

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 wintery white suit. Not a fan of pantsuits? Try a white faux fur vest styled with a plain black long-sleeve top (a la Palermo), a pair of skinny jeans and some pointy-toe heels or suede boots.
