White after Labor Day? How about white after Election Day? This FOF is no slave to rules as she proudly dons the pearly hue deep into autumn. But, what do you think: is she a fashion rebel without a cause? Or did she get it all white? Read what our style experts think, then, tell us your opinion in the comments below.
Glenyse Thompson: “White after Labor Day can be chic, and this look almost made it. Her upper layers are really working, but her pants are so loose they look like waffle thermal underwear. Fit is everything! Choosing a size smaller in stretch pants help them keep their shape. Her boots aren’t doing this outfit any favors either, making her feet look huge, and completely out of proportion to her petite frame. Booties or a taller-shaft boot with a rounder toe would have complemented this look better.”

Sherrie Mathieson: “As for white after Labor Day…or in this case Election Day–I’d say it’s really more about fabric choice than color choice. This pretty lady looks bright but not summery. She uses layered white in wintery textures for a great total look. Her accent fall pieces in navy are an unexpected touch–perfect!”
Lovey Dash: “This look happens to be one of my favorites. It’s so chic and classic from her gorgeous flat leather boots to her wonderful layered tee and sweater. I also love the proportion of her bag. If you really pushed me to make one change I’d say ditch the white bracelets. Winter, spring, summer or fall–this look is great!”

Susan Sommers: “This look is pure perfection before, during and after Labor and Election Days. The mix of textures and fabric weights makes this outfit current and modern. By anchoring it with a dark handbag and boots, it really suits the season. The only piece I would add is a long challis, cashmere- or cashmere-blend scarf in a bold geometric print swathing the neck to add some punch and keep the ensemble definitely in the cold-weather category.”
