White after Labor Day can easily be incorporated into your work wardrobe.  It is a great alternative to black and it is bound to make you stand out during the dreary Winter months.  And it also goes with all skin tones!  It’s no wonder why all brides look beautiful on their wedding day! Look at the outfits above for work day white ideas.

Here are three keys to creating a professional monochromatic white look:

  1. Add a non-white color or a neutral – see my accessories
  2. Understated is always classic and elegant
  3. Layer – you can add a coat, gloves, sweater or tights to any of these three outfits if you work in a cold climate

Regardless of where you work and what day of the week, white is alright at work!
