Although many fashion rules are in place for a reason, we wholeheartedly believe that with the correct styling – and confident attitude – any fashion rule can be successfully broken. With the popularity of winter white and shades of oyster and cream, the “No white after Labor Day” standard is one style decree that has been consistently ignored by fashion risk-takers and style conservatives alike.  Don’t get us wrong, with the transition towards muted earth tones and deep jewel hues during winter and fall there is a right and wrong way to wear white after you’ve closeted your summer brights. But how do you correctly style white for the cooler months? We rounded up 14 fashion influencers to hear what they had to say about styling their favorite white wardrobe staples for fall and winter. So before you say goodbye to your perfectly worn in white skinny jeans or smart white blazer, take a cue from these fashion-savvy ladies on how to make your summer whites work all year round.

1 Fashion Love Affair

“I love the effortlessness of a monochromatic look, and wearing white with white is just so chic! I would style my white pants with a cozy white sweater and some nude pumps.”
Cara from Fashion Love Affair


“A classic white shirt dress is a great closet staple that can easily transition from the warmer to cooler seasons. Layering is key and I love incorporating textured neutrals for autumn. Think a cashmere sweater on top (a shirtdress disguised as a skirt) or a buttery, leather jacket. You can never go wrong with a traditional nude pump (a year round must have) or black ballet flats. Add some delicate gold chain jewelry, a dark, moody nail and you are set. Bring it on Fall!”
Nicole from Cedar and Rush


“Keep your white blazer chic for Fall by ditching the LWD & opting for a wide leg pant instead. It provides cool weather coverage & allows you to wear this easy-to-style color all year long!”
Meaghan from District Sparkle


“I’m a firm believer that wearing white should be a year-round statement. Anyone can wear white even after Labor Day. That rule should definitely be broken! The focal point being, knowing how to style it for Fall. This white button-down is a loose fit and a perfect staple for Fall. I’m definitely going to dress it down with slouchy boyfriend jeans and booties in the cooler months to come. This white cap juxtapositions the girly and sporty look.”
Grace from Gracefullee Made


”I love my white blouse because it’s very comfy and I can wear it with a pair of jeans or dress it up with a leather skirt or even with a sequin mini skirt for example. For cooler months I will style it with a blazer or even layer it with another blouse under it and wear an oversized coat on the shoulders. I think a white blouse goes with everything… it’s a great basic.”
Gina from High on Fashion Blog


“White is a “Triple C” color—crisp, clean and chic! I love wearing white all year round, especially in the fall and winter months. A white dress is easily transitioned into colder seasons with the right accessories. This bohemian dress would pair perfectly with a pair of over the knee boots like these tan suede ones by Dolce Vita. I’m not a huge fan of wearing tights so OTK boots are a great way to bundle up sans tights. Also, try adding fur to your look like this cross-body bag from DNKY.”
Katelyn from Katalina Girl


”This blazer coat is great for fall because it doubles as a blazer and a light coat. It would also be great under a bodycon dress or skinny jeans and light sweater.”
Enocha from Locks and Trinkets


“I love this maxi dress because it is such a piece to have in your closet all year round. You can pair it with a leather moto jacket, fun scarf and booties for fall and voila! You have your self a gorgeous fall outfit!”
Erika from Lola Blue Style


“A white button down midi skirt is the perfect piece because it can transition easily from summer to fall. For fall, I would pair it with some brown platform booties, a loose fitted sweater and wool hat for that perfect fall look.”
Olia from Love, Olia


“During the summer, a lightweight tee or tank is perfect with your white jeans. So during the Fall and Winter, try the opposite and throw on a bunch of layers. A jacket, scarves, boots, socks — they’re all good choices that will instantly make your jeans feel cool-weather appropriate.”
Merrick from Merrick’s Art


“A white collared button down shirt is a classic that can be worn all year and is perfect for fall when paired with patterned trousers, black pumps and a bold red lip.” This look is one that can easily transition from work to happy hour.”
Rachel from Rachel’s Lookbook


“For fall I’d absolutely pair this dress with a loose sweater, booties, and a wool fedora! Another option would be throwing on a plaid or tartan shirt, a denim jacket, a scarf and either flats or booties”
Gaby from The Vault Files

“I plan to pair a chunky white knit sweater or a white turtle neck sweater with a statement necklace and finish off the look with knee-hight boots for another all-white ensemble.”
AikA from AikA’s Love Closet


“I love pairing my white, crisp paneled blazer with an all black ensemble. It gives a fresh, minimalistic pop for Fall!”
Ashley from Golden Divine
