I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: only cowards stop wearing white after Labor Day. Ladies, why let some ancient and arbitrary dictate from the 1800s rule how we dress in 2020? Not even to mention that—as many of you have pointed out in recent days—it’s still plenty hot in many parts of the country right now? I love white all year-round, but especially in fall, when it looks so crisp. And I’m not as much into white head-to-toe—I like to break things up with some black or grey—and this cute little chore jacket is a super-easy way to introduce the hue into your autumnal wardrobe.
This twist front hoodie is fun, and sure to be flattering.
My mom and I have this agreement that whenever one of us is repeating a story the other has already heard, we pat the top of our heads—which we’ve decided is much more polite than saying “Yes, you already told me that.” So you can all pat your heads, because I’m about to tell you once again that one of my few fashion don’ts is tight white jeans. Instead, I prefer a roomier straight cut, like on this cute pair.
These sweats would be really cute if everything else you were wearing was black.
Madewell’s courier shirt is just a good short-sleeved specimen, and it’s available in sizes up to XXL.
Likewise, these L.L. Bean corduroys go up to size 20, and they’re super-well-priced.
I bought this poplin shirtdress at the beginning of the summer and always felt so crisp and put-together when I wore it. It’s not available anymore in all sizes, but maybe you’ll get lucky.
These straight leg cropped pants are such a flattering cut, and I like that they’re not white white.
And finally: I am crazy for this pointy-toe boot with a nicely walkable heel.
