Vogue’s Best Dressed list was full of white ensembles this week. I love every one of them. White is so perfectly flattering on just about every skin tone and creates a sort of minimalist backdrop to show off those well-maintained locks.
To be honest, I don’t really believe in the old “no white after labor day” rule. I think that some of fall and winter’s best looks have been all white ensembles. However, to appease the crowd of traditionalists, here’s a great guide to wearing white before Labor Day arrives and before the color is no longer (traditionally) fashionably acceptable for fall.

Good morning, fashionable friends!
Summer is slowly coming to a close as we prepare for new school schedules and cooler temperatures. So, even if it isn’t time to put away those shorts and pull out the parkas, it is nearly time for the implementation of the transitional wardrobe.
Transitional wardrobes are a girl’s best friend. Transitional wardrobes are a blend of pieces from warmer weather clothing and cooler weather clothing. With layers, you can be prepared for the first bits of cooler weather while still maintaining an appropriate style for the hotter moments of the day that are yet to let our sweaty selves be.
Although everyone is familiar with layering, Miranda Kerr is the queen of modern transitional dress. She has mastered color pallets, fabrics, and flirty styles while managing to remain appropriate for any woman to imitate on a daily basis. Here are just a few of her transitional wardrobe styles
In any one of these photos, a layer or two could be removed to make the outfits more warm weather friendly. Also, the end of summer time also means a rush to wear all of those nautical inspired items that we bought for summer (i.e. blue and white striped sweater, etc.).
The other thing that makes Miranda Kerr’s wardrobe so functional is that her statement pieces (i.e. cropped leather jacket, utility jacket, booties, neutral totes, etc.) are timeless and appropriate for all seasons. Summer may not yet be over, but it’s time to start preparing for some stylish layers.
