White is such a crisp, clean, fresh feeling color. I think whoever said you can't wear white after Labor Day is crazy.  Why would I want to limit wearing it to only the summer months?  

However, I do believe there are some tips to wearing white during the cooler months.

1. FABRIC.  The fabric of your piece is so important.  You don't want to look like you're off to a summer BBQ in the middle of 50 degree weather.  Stick to classic fall/winter fabrics - denim, wool, knits, etc.  Stay away from anything too sheer or lightweight.  For example, I've put away linen for the winter.

2. ACCESSORIES.  9 times out of 10, any accessories that you would wear with your summer whites should not be worn with your fall white outfit.  Anchor the outfit with fall  accessories (darker colors, fur, boots, etc).  It makes all the difference & you can never go wrong with classic black.
