How to Wear White Pants After Labor Day
At the office, opt for tailored trousers in a timeless tone, then introduce pops of color through prints and of-the-moment accessories. Burgundy lace-up steppers and a bright vegan-leather backpack make this ladylike top really pop, while a suede jacket in a ’70s-inspired silhouette adds structure and texture to the stylish getup.

Take the unexpected one step further by layering a printed frock over a pair of white denim. A gold collar necklace introduces undeniable edge, while a bright, faux-fur clutch has trendsetter written all over it. And before heading out the door, toss on a boxy wool coat, fusing both traditional and modern styles.

White gets cozy this season with a boho-meets-glam plaid cape and turtleneck topper. Lace-up boots and a leather cincher add an element of ruggedness to the outfit without taking away from its chic factor, while a boxy python bag packs plenty of on-trend appeal.
