Hailey Bieber is officially the fashion rule-breaker we need. The model never ceases to bless us with impeccable street style ensembles, but her latest look—and perhaps one of her simplest to date—is a low-key revolution. Hailey Bieber wore a white outfit after Labor Day (*gasp*), reminding us all that the antiquated rule begs to be broken. For too long, many of us have relegated our white clothes to the back of the closet or packed them away in storage once the calendar hits Labor Day. But no more! Hailey Bieber’s all-white ensemble is just the inspiration we need to break free of the fashion rule and don our white clothing through fall—and even into winter.
Grabbing coffee in West Hollywood, Hailey Bieber was spotted wearing a white tee and jeans long after Labor Day. Los Angeles doesn’t really cool off until December, so it makes sense—but we’re taking it as the quiet fashion revolution it is. The model added a white face mask (a must!), a little bit of gold jewelry and a white coffee cup to complete the ensemble. (OK, so the coffee cup is likely a coincidence, but we love a matching moment nonetheless.)
So if you’ve already tucked away your white jeans and favorite white tops for fall, let this Hailey Bieber outfit inspire you to bring them back out. This fall, we’re wearing white—and nothing can stop us.
The “no white after Labor Day” rule actually has a bit of a sordid history, and (if we’re being honest) should have never become a standard practice in the first place. It was originally instated to separate the elitists who had money from the rest. Folks who could afford to leave the city during the warmer months and head to vacation homes would wear white—making it a vacation look, and not something you wore while in the city.
So why are so many of us still adhering to the rule? Considering it’s been around for decades, it makes sense we’d just accept it as the norm over time—but that all ends today. We’ve rounded up several must-have white pieces for fall (all under $70, by the way!) below, so you can start dressing like rule-breaking Hailey Bieber ASAP.
