White after Labor Day? It can be done!

Think you need to put away all of your white outfits as soon as Labor Day has passed? Not so. You can still pull off white well into the winter, especially at a formal event - it's just about finding the right cut!

White is usually considered a summer color, but what's more pristine and pure than the first white snow or an overcast fall day? You can channel the beauty of fall and winter into a white formal gown easily if you follow these tips.

Whenever you wear white, no matter the season, it's important to stay out of wedding dress territory. Avoid details that are traditionally bridal, like lace and embroidery, and stay away from floor-length hems. To stay warm in the colder months, opt for a white dress with long sleeves and a short hemline, then pair it with sheer tights and closed-toed heels to avoid getting chilly. Throw on a brightly-colored overcoat if you'll be stepping outside, and you can add an instant pop of attitude!

You can also dress up your white look with brightly colored earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Keep your look simple but sparkly white clear diamonds or ivory pearls, or add a little life with colorful emeralds, sapphires, rubies and amethysts.
