The day after Labor Day brings a yearly fashion dilemma: Should I pack up my white jeans and dresses for the winter, or wear them year-round? (Mental Floss has a great explanation about the origins of this wardrobe rule.)

Whether you’re a traditionalist or a rebel, there’s one place you definitely shouldn’t skip white in the winter: your living room. As days get shorter and the sun gets weaker, white interiors keep your home light and bright. That’s why white-on-white interiors are a staple of Scandinavian design. But even if you live in a slightly warmer climate, the white-on-white trend is still worth a second look.

Decorate With White After Labor Day

Living Room | Fall Outfit

If you get cold chills just thinking about an all-white room (not to mention the clean-up factor), this room by Julia Buckingham Edelman creates a beautiful compromise. Warm oranges, yellows and browns stand out next to antiqued gold and bright white.

And the white clothing? I’m rocking my favorite pieces as part of my early fall ensembles. How could something this cute be wrong?
