Isle Style : White

I think the notion that you can't wear white after Labor day is a little dated, plus how could you resist the crisp feeling that white generates, especially by the beach. Today's Isle Style is to give you a few different looks for what may be the last playful weekend of the summer season. Elle MacPherson looks stunning with her layered necklaces, bracelets and that sweet white cardi is perfect. Not to mention what I suspect to be a Missoni bikini bottom, is not a bad match.
Miranda Kerr looks adorable in this little white dress. Even better is that this look is doable at any age. Pairing this dress with simple tennies gives it a playful and cheerful feel.
Of course we can always go boho at the beach. I am personally gravitating towards the floppy hat and knitted poncho cover up. It's a little chilly here in Monterey so for this labor day weekend I will definitely reach for a warm cover up as I relax by the sea. .

Which white look do you prefer?

I don't know which image I like the best!!! I love them all:)
So simple and chic! And I completely think it's a-ok to wear white after labor day......but I am usually starting to get so pale that it doesn't look very good on me anymore:(:(
Not much sun around here after labor day!!!!

they're all lovely. nice selections, laura. the idea of a simple but interesting white dress always appeals to me.
i must say, elle continues to be stunning! she is my age, so i've paid attention to her through the years (mostly during her "heyday").

i love to wear white any time of the year. i think it is as basic to the wardrobe as the little black dress, which i adore...and white looks great on anybody!

I knew you'd be wearing white for Labor Day..
as will I..but after LD..
then I switch to Winter White..
It is a softer, easier to wear version..
perfect for Wool slacks and sweaters..
The only whites I wear year round are my undies and sneakers..
both of which I prefer to be a blindingly bright white..
enjoy the holiday!
(of your selections.. I choose the white shift)

yes, this no white after labor day thing drives me crazy that there are people who even think this way - what about winter white or mixing white w/camel or brown colors - even w/black! Love these pics!!
