There is a cardinal rule in fashion that says wearing the colour white after Labour Day is a major fashion faux pas. However, if you choose to break this rule then you only have a few weeks left to rock summer-approved white pieces. We’ve rounded up our favourite five white pieces that you can add to your wardrobe this summer and get away wearing straight into fall if you’re feeling rebellious.
While jeans are a staple item in most wardrobes, it’s important to ensure you have a pair of white jeans this summer so you can instantly brighten up your look. These white jeans are simple but can add a bit of edge to your outfit because of the distressed, raw hem. This trend has been heavily popular over the past few months and is perfect for those unexpected chillier nights this summer.

Dresses are a must-have this season and a chic, white halter dress is perfect for those lazy summer days. The material is lightweight and the colour will keep you cool all summer, while the halter neck and long bow at the back adds a touch of fun to an otherwise understated look.

Shopping for the right style of jumpsuit for your body type can be time-consuming and tricky. However, a great jumpsuit is definitely worth the hunt as they are extremely comfortable and easy to style. A white jumpsuit is a key essential in every woman’s wardrobe because it’s the perfect transitional item from day to night in the summer. You can simply dress up a jumpsuit with a pair of killer heels and jewellery or dress down with a pair of espadrilles or sandals.

It’s hard to imagine that anyone would want to purchase an all-white bag, as it’s an easy target for stains and spills. However, during the summer months when you’re looking to add a subtle pop of colour to your look, an all-white purse is the perfect summer accessory. This Oak and Fort bag screams simplicity and the off-white colour is great for any season. The vegan leather is easy to clean; so you don’t have to worry about stains or spills at any upcoming summer BBQs or events.

A chic white blouse is a must-have for all seasons simply because it can be mixed and matched with various fabrics and colours.
