Fashion faux-pas have quickly become a hot topic for me here on MTV Fora. Exploring the possibilities of debunking fashion stereotypes and reinventing them to become a fashion statement is just so interesting. The idea that there are strict fashion “rules” to abode by just seems crazy. So, for todays post, we are going to explore one of the most universally known fashion rules – “No White After Labour Day”.
ON THE RUNWAY
The warm weather isn’t quite over yet. These soft, light layers at Carlos Diez Diez are a great end of summer option. I mean, why not wear your bathrobe out?
A few more casual options at CK by Calvin Klein and Fendi. Incorporating a bit of black in the look can break up the look nicely. I’ve always found it difficult to not look like a painter wearing white head-to-toe, so a little slap of black around the waist will definitely help.
Hein-Le gives us a crisp and easy take on the look. A great white button up with some simple shorts may be simple, but it will give you an effortless ease while still looking quite striking.
For a bit of a more advanced take on the look, we go to juun.j. This exaggerated shoulder look is literally everything I’m into for fall. If you’re going to try out the white look, why not just GO for it?!
Moncler Gamme Bleu proves even if it’s raining, you can still rock a head to toe white look. No excuses.
I honestly come back to this Phillip Lim S/S collection for evvverything. It is jam packed with all my favourite trends. Socks and sandals, print-on-print, flannel around the waist, the BEST layering… it has everything. No surprise here that Phillip gives us some super strong white-on-white looks.
Maison Martin Margiela gives us a surprisingly tamed down take on the trend. Tight white pants are a hard to wear piece, so a looser fit pant like these are probably a good option to consider.
Ivania at Love Aesthetics does a killer monochromatic look, so it’s so surprise that she slays an all white look. Paired perfectly with her hair, I might add. This girl can do no wrong.
Charlie May of Girl A La Mode has a chic, effortless way of putting an outfit together. She was the first person who came to mind when considering people for this post. She wears carefully selected, classic pieces with such ease. Love her!
A few selections of street style from Monsieur Jerome. Again, the little touches of back are a great way to break up a white look if you’re not ready to totally commit.
So, I challenge you to debunk this faux-pas for good. Put your best white outfit together and hit the streets! We need to begin a revolt against these style myths! Good luck, my friends.
