In the south, it’s custom to put your white clothing items away after Labor Day. As a girl who lives in her white clothing, this used to devastate me! I would sadly put all my summer whites in the back of my closet and eagerly await Memorial Day so I could pull them back out.
But one September day, I was putting some of my white clothing in the back of my closet when I was thinking about how cute my white jeans would look with a sweater I just bought. I realized then and there that my white clothing could easily transition from season to season! Today I’m going to be showing you how to wear white in the fall and summer months.
1. White can be so fresh and unexpected in the fall. But as we all know there are different shades of white. I think stark winter whites are my shade and think accessories make the whites go from season to season. Rose gold has a more summertime vibe, gold for fall and silver for winter. A simple accessory switch can transition your white outfit.
2. Another way to make your whites transition is layers, layers, layers. Add jackets, sweaters, cardigans, hats, scarves and other layering pieces. I also like to make sure I add at least one patterned piece. Leopard and white is a beautiful, chic combo!
3. Stick with clean and classic silhouettes. Some styles scream summer and are too seasonal to transition. You can also try some heavier fabrics in white like wool, tweed, cashmere, and leather.
4. While it’s tempting, don’t wear white clothing on the top and bottom. This combo screams ‘summer’ and won’t be quite as chic in the dead of winter.
5. Keep your white clothing clean. You may think it’s tricky and a hassle, but I bleach my whites to keep them prim and pristine. My trick is Clorox Bleach!
Clorox Bleach with CLOROMAX keeps your clothes whiter longer and has enhanced whitening power*. I get Clorox on my weekly Target runs, and in my Target, it’s located on the outside aisles towards the back.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Bleach is a messy six letter word. But honestly it’s the best thing to use to keep your clothes whiter longer and it’s way easier to use than you think. When I first started bleaching my whites, I read this super helpful post on Clorox.com, and it gave great tips on how to use bleach. I learned that you can wash dark clothes after using bleach on whites in a previous load without additional steps!
It’s amazing the difference I noticed in my whites after just one wash with Clorox Bleach. I thought my whites were white, but they’re so much more vivid now! If you’re hesitant about using bleach, check out the tutorial above, go buy some Clorox Bleach and go to town on your whites!
