White is a universally flattering color that makes the perfect addition to any closet! Even though you might absolutely shine in a white dress, you might’ve also fallen into the common trap of keeping your white wardrobe tucked away unless it’s the summertime. Although white is an iconic summer color, there are many ways you can continue wearing it all year round!

We get what you must be thinking: “am I allowed to wear white after Labor Day?”
If you couldn’t already tell, we’re giving you a loud “YES!”

While wearing white is a century-8 summertime fashion tradition, more and more people are incorporating this color into their every day, yearlong wardrobe. Say goodbye to only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day and learn how you can wear a white dress, jumpsuit, or romper in any weather during any season!

How to Wear White in the Summer

White is one of the most popular colors to wear during the summer season. Incorporating summer whites into your wardrobe is one of the simplest, yet most stylish, ways to be a fashionista all season long. Not only is the color super cute, but this light shade will keep you cool since white doesn’t absorb too much heat and won’t show off perspiration like other colors.

How to Wear White in the Winter

We already know what you’re asking yourself- “can I wear white in the winter?” The answer is yes, you absolutely can! However, wearing a white dress in the winter will look a bit different than your traditional summer styles. Depending on where you live, winter means that temperatures are about to drop, so it’s time to bundle up! Stay toasty by swapping out those white cotton and linen dresses for heavier fabrics, like corduroy, cashmere, and wool. These materials will help you stay warm while looking hot!

Another way to embrace white outfits during the wintertime is by adding some white jumpsuits to your closet. Jumpsuits, especially long sleeve jumpsuits, will provide more coverage and help you keep warm during the chilly months. Lucky for you- Mac Duggal recently released a new line of white jumpsuits that are the trendiest we’ve seen yet! You can find all of these Mac Duggal jumpsuits (and many more) on Queenly, so it’s time to start shopping!

How to Wear White Year Round

Now that you’ve learned how to wear a white dress in the summer and how to wear a white jumpsuit in the winter, it’s time to cover the rest of the year! Adding white outfits to your spring and autumn wardrobes is a bit easier since the weather will be cool and mild. You won’t have to worry about being too cold anymore! Depending on what the weather is like on that specific day, you can easily wear a cute white cocktail dress on a warm, spring day or a trendy white jumpsuit on a chilly, autumn night.

How to Wear White During Wedding Season

We all know the golden wedding rule: never wear white to a wedding. But did you know that there are ways to get around this guideline without getting on the bride’s bad side? We definitely recommend airing on the side of caution and avoiding any solid off-white outfits. Even though these aren’t technically white, shades like ivory, eggshell, and cream should stay in your closet and away from any wedding celebrations. Instead, try incorporating white into a patterned or floral dress. This will ensure that white is a more subtle aspect of your overall look and will still allow the bride to shine! Are you still wondering how to wear white to a wearing? Check out our Queenly wedding guest guide: How White is Too White for a Wedding.

It’s about time that all ditch the rule “never wear white after labor day!” With so many styles, fabrics, and silhouettes to choose from, you can finally start including white in your year-round wardrobe. Find the perfect white dress to keep you cool in the summer and a trendy white jumpsuit to keep you looking hot in the winter!
