Wearing White {Denim} After Labor Day

Wearing White Denim After Labor Day with a fun graphic tee

Ladies, as you begin to transition your closet to fall, PLEASE do not put your white denim away. So many of us, especially here in the southeast, were taught the old adage “no white denim after Labor Day.” Guess what? That whole concept is a thing of the past, and we couldn’t be happier about it because it means we can enjoy our white denim year around!

The key to enjoying your white denim into fall is to pair it with fall tones. Think rust, olive green, camel, grey…. You get the drift.  As far as shoes are concerned, it is totally fine to wear open toed or even sandals into September with your white jeans, but ensure that they too play into the fall hues. Think browns, animal prints, snakeskin…. 

Let’s look at some fun style boards for your white denim to give you some ideas on how to freshen up your white denim look for the early fall months.


White Denim After Labor Day

We love these wide leg cropped jeans by Madewell….  They are so versatile and have a super fun, playful feel to them!

For a casual look, pair them with a fun graphic tee – even one from your summer closet would work just fine as long as it isn’t too “summery.” Steer away from beaches, sunshine, pineapples, etc. though, as well as any super summery hues, such as turquoise, coral, neon pink, etc. In fact, we love this particular color palette for early fall…. The grey tones with pops of yellows and oranges are so perfect for September! Add a pretty belt and some sneakers, and you are casually put together for running around town. To take it up just a notch, we love the idea of wearing some fun mules with a pattern like these snake skin beauties… Mules are the perfect fall shoe because they don’t look quite as summery as a sandal, but they allow your feet to breathe a bit when it’s still relatively hot outside.

Even though these white jeans have a fun and whimsical feel, you can also dress them up a bit more depending on what you have going on. We love them paired with this Michael Stars half sleeve turtleneck top – how GORGEOUS is this rust color with a bit of mauve hue?! Add in some fun leopard print calf hair open toed clogs with a bit of a heel and tortoise earrings, and you are very much looking the part of early fall while still enjoying your white denim!

Fall Looks with White Skinny Jeans

We love the look of a black top with white denim after Labor Day. Clean and crisp, this look is so fun for fall – throw in some animal print to add a fun fall pattern pop! You can be effortlessly casual and put together with a drapey black blouse or a puff sleeve top (a HUGE trend again this fall) paired with classic black loafers, geometric gold earrings, and a leopard print belt….  Simple and effective!

You can elevate this look for evening simply by changing your accessories. Grab a skinny black belt, some fun animal print or snakeskin heels and gold statement earrings. Instant glam!



Transitioning White Distressed Denim into Fall

Distressed white jeans are SO fun. Perfect in the summer with tanks and tees for a super casual vibe, but also so fabulous for fall!  One way that we absolutely love to wear our distressed white denim after Labor day is to create a very classic, tailored look on top to offset the edgy vibe of the distressing on the jeans.

Transitioning white denim into fall with camel hues and muted tones

We love the idea of a muted camel tone top with white denim in the fall. It creates a soft, tone on tone look that is just so gorgeous. These two sweaters from J. Crew are both so classic and beautiful and offset the distressed jeans in such a fun way!  Continue the classic tone with some pretty woven mules. Again, love these for early fall because they look seasonally appropriate but keep your feet relatively cool! If you are so lucky as to have a cool night on the porch, throw on a pretty blanket scarf in beige tones to round out your look.

Another soft tone-on-tone look we love for fall is white jeans with a grey color palette. For a classic yet edgy casual look, pair your distressed jeans with J. Crew’s classically cut sweater blazer (one of our favorite pieces of all time), a white t-shirt (we love this Michael Stars option. It has a pretty subtle sheen to it), an embossed belt, and either sneakers or leather {waterproof} flats. How AMAZING are these John sneakers?! We love the white and grey hues with fun glitter and metallic mixed in!



Dressing up white jeans with grey tones in the fall months

Drapey Cami | Sweater Blazer | High Waisted Distressed Denim | Spike Drop Earrings

Snake Embossed Leather Belt | Metallic Ankle Strap Sandal

We love the idea of dressing these distressed jeans up too! Layer a pretty silky cami under the sweater blazer. Keep the same belt and earrings, but just change your shoes to some silver ankle sandals. And you are ready for a fun dinner out!
