According to the old school fashion rules, white is not a color that is normally worn in the Autumn. Those rules are changing, but some of us still have a problem wearing all white, much less making it seasonally appropriate.
Follow these style guides below and you'll be able to wear white all year round!
The classy all white looks is a forever favorite for transitioning pieces from summer to winter. Add a little warmth to your whitest whites with some almost white accessories for a streamlined look. We chose this lace vest to add some texture and coziness to the white dress. Don't be afraid to stick to a simple color palette- you can't go wrong with monochrome.
Layer it Up
Along with Fall comes cooler weather. If you don't normally wear jeans under your abaya or dress, now would be a good time to start. This look is perfect for autumn and winter because layering helps keep you warm as and your favorite jeans can an extra dimension of comfort to your outfit. Top your jeans off with boots or booties, and you'll be ready for fall in no time.
The Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are perfect for that awkward time in between seasons. A jacket, especially one with funky hardware, is an effortless way to add personality to the blank white page that is your dress. Add some statement jewelry and a boldly patterned scarf for a really bold look. Perfect for Autumn evenings.
Classic Black and White
Black and white can do no wrong. If it is still to warm to layer your white abaya or dress, just add some black accessories for a more put together, professional look. For hijabs, stick to a monochrome style or add a pop of bright color for some personality. Belting an Abaya or long dress is an easy way to change up the look completely without adding to many layers.
Denim definitely screams summer, but when styled correctly is perfect for all year. Choose a dark denim blouse and add some deep fall colored accessories to make this summer-inspired outfit work for Autumn. With such versatile pieces, the possibilities are endless, and this is a perfect look for going to work or class.
And of course, our Favorite - CARDIGANS!
Don't underestimate the awesomeness of cardigans - a stylish hijabi's best friend. These warm colored cardigans were made for fall, and will instantly make your white dress seasonally appropriate. Style your white abaya with a different cardigan and hijab combo every day of the week and you have easy, comfortable outfits galore.
Remember the white-wearing basics: always watch out for stains and layer properly under your white dress or abaya to make sure it's not transparent.
Go ahead-break the rules. You're officially ready to wear white year-round with confidence. Fashion Police Approved.
