Gone are the days where Labor Day is the official sign to retire your whites until the warmer weather arrives again. The breaking of this fashion rule started in February 2012 when the unpigmented hue was the biggest trend for the upcoming fall season. White was seen stomping down the runways at Alexander Wang, Peter Som, and Tibi and then returning for Fall 2013 when designers Tadashi Shoji, Diesel Black Gold, Jason Wu, and Marissa Webb donned this colorless neutral shade as the one to wear.
So how do you rock white this time of year? Use these tips to do white right!
1. Watch your fabric choice:
White in wool, leather, and flannel are some of the best winter fabrics so find those garments in the snowy shade.

2. Do it in the form of a accessory:
An accessory is the best why to try a trend to see how you like it. White also tends to be bright so it might be all the pop you need add to your wardrobe.
