In the last few days, there has been a lot of discussion about wearing white after Labor Day. This is an interesting topic for a girl who grew up in Florida and who now lives in a tropical country. The whole “no white after Labor Day” debate is primarily a geographical one. If your climate hardly changes, neither should your color choices.

monochromatic shirt dress with white leggingsSlit Maxi Dress

This monochromatic two slit maxi dress is a great option for wearing over white leggings.  White leggings add a crisp, fresh look, but they can also give the illusion of width if not paired properly. This style allows for a cute peekaboo look without adding any extra bulk to your frame.

The loose design of this dress is also figure-flattering because it flows over the body and the tummy area.

I also paired this dress with a white shape wear tank. When dressing, make sure to finish your look by considering the underarm area. By adding a simple tank, I not only give this outfit a streamlined look from head to toe, but I also cover an area that is a consideration for fashion over 40.

I am wearing a gorgeous Kendra Scott pendant necklace and a collection of Brighton bangles. The Alfani ballet flats give this outfit a finished look. You can find a similar pair here.

      Hi Suzy, I am all about making any outfit work with my style sensibilities.I wouldn’t wear a dress slit up to there, so I had to figure a way to pull it off and I love how the white pops from underneath! Thanks for stopping by.
