While it’s true the old rule of wearing white only from Memorial Day through Labor Day has gone the way of the rotary dial, there’s nothing that says summer quite like a crisp white dress or a pretty pale shoe. So before you welcome fall, lighten up your look with these 10 white wardrobe picks, some of which will help you break the post-Labor Day no-white decree.

1. Tavik White One-Piece Swimsuit

Simple, sleek and never out of style, this classic gets a sly wink of sex appeal with a snap-front placket and plunging back. Put it on double duty après-beach as a standalone bodysuit or as a layering piece.

2. Lafayette New York Scoop Neck Cotton Tee

Never overlook the power of keeping it simple. Crafted from extra-fine mercerized cotton for a little bit of stretch, this tee holds its shape through multiple washes.

4. Paige Denim Jacqueline Jeans

One can never have too many pairs of white jeans. A staple for evening walks on the beach, wear them with creamy knits for the ultimate in winter-white style when the cold weather arrives.

5. Alice + Olivia Pleat Front Shorts

These high rise pleated shorts remind us there’s no better time to show off those sun-kissed, pilates-toned legs that you spent all spring cultivating.

6. Datura White Linen Shirt Dress

Wear it with bare legs all summer long, take it into cold weather as a layering piece over jeans or skinny pants.

7. Alexander Wang Leidy Sandals

Let your toes peek out with a pair of white slides while the weather’s still warm. Silver studs lend a touch of tough charm to an otherwise simple shoe – a great counterpoint to your ultra-feminine pieces.

8. Stella McCartney Olivier Woven Culottes

Just the right compromise when you want the freedom of shorts but the tailored, work-ready look of a skirt.

9. Prada Grommeted Handbag

Textured calfskin and oversized grommets give this white bag a mod spin. Take it into fall as part of a black-and-white look that’s a little bit groovy and a whole lot chic.

10. Balmain Crepe Blazer

Razor-sharp tailoring and a slim, single-button silhouette make this crepe blazer a warm-weather investment piece you’ll reach for year after year. Sling it over a filmy chiffon dress when you’re not wearing it to the office.
