White after Labor Day? For shame! Of course, we have been saying that for about a decade now, so why is this new? Well, it might not exactly be a new trend, in fact it could be a new classic look. White for fall 2015 is starting to look more like an investment look, rather than a trend. Imagine that!

The all-white look, or adding white pieces onto an ensemble as a neutral, after Labor Day, has become a standard way of dressing over the past decade. The all-white look is starting to become what the all-black look enjoyed for decades; the go-to look for almost any occasion.

White for fall 2015 can be the perfect neutral in a wardrobe for the autumn season. White can be an accessory which matches anything, or it can be a favorite wrap, shawl, poncho, jacket, or go-to sweater. White for fall 2015 can also be an all-over look; making it the ultimate alternative to wearing all black.

How can I qualify all-white, or white as a year-round neutral, as a new classic? Well, let’s check out the facts. Over the past ten years, wearing white after Labor Day has been considered OK. Although it has been looked at as a seasonal trend, the all-white look has been holding strong; season after season.

All-white looks were dominant on the spring 2016 runways last month; proving the look is continuing into next year. It will not stop! This means white pieces are a great investment this season; or any season. In fact, white is the most versatile neutral after black; since shades of brown are seasonal, and navy is lighter in the spring than the fall.

Although all-white ensembles can add weight, a reason I don’t wear all-white, we can all enjoy wearing white without going completely tonal. White accessories such as a handbag, scarf or pair of shoes, are perfect for enjoying white after Labor Day without adding weight to our figures. My favorite way to wear white is by carrying a white handbag. Although, I am eyeing this white poncho for fall. Doesn’t it look soft and cozy?!

I found a few fabulous white items for the fall 2015 season, and assembled them into the shopping widgets below. I hope you love them!

One of the big trends I noticed on the New York runways last September was the all-white trend. So many designers favored pairing white with white and then adding either neutral or brightly colored accessories. As a Mother of three, the thought of wearing all white is a bit daunting; but I loved how the all-white ensembles looked as they graced the runways, so I thought I would give it a whirl!

I love white shirts for the summer, so this blouse from Gap seemed perfect for creating an all-white look; and wearing on casual days with jeans! I also love midi skirts right now, so of course I chose this inexpensive white skirt from ASOS. (one of my favorite online destinations with affordable and on-trend clothing!)

I wore this outfit for half a day and managed to keep it pristine! I have decided that is a win 🙂 I will definitely be wearing my all-white ensemble again this season, maybe next time with a bright color instead of black.

Have you tried the all-white trend this year? If so, did you use neutral or colorful accessories?

I absolutely adore pastels in the spring season. There is something about pastels which tells the world the cold weather is over and sunny days are here. One of my favorite all-time pastel hues is mint green. I love pairing mint green with white since white is such a crisp and clean color. I feel like it is the perfect neutral hue to brighten up mint green and make it pop.

This could be why I love the Ippolita Wonderland set I am wearing with this outfit. The mint green and white quartz set in sterling silver offers a crisp feel in warm weather. Love that! To tie everything together, I love this watch from my new favorite online boutique TrendCY. The white strap helps make the mint green glow and the loose fit will be perfect for the warm weather in spring, and the hot temperatures of the summer months. I also love the watch in white since it will match everything I wear in spring and summer!

Do you have a favorite pastel hue this season? What is your favorite neutral hue to set it off?
