It feels like summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye. With Labor Day suddenly just a few days away, the first day of fall lingers shortly behind, and I am frantically taking advantage of any time I can spend outdoors in summer fashion.
Before retiring my sandals and summer dresses for the year, I must bid farewell to summer with a few last warm weather looks before Labor Day. While it has been engraved in our minds that it’s a faux pas to wear white after Labor Day, time has rendered this “no white after Labor Day” rule lenient, if not entirely obsolete. You are guaranteed to see white throughout fall and winter.
There’s no doubt that I will be rocking white this fall/winter season, but there are certain white looks that will be shelved until next year. One dress in particular stood out among the rest, because of its flowing angelic demeanor that screams summers at the beach. The chiffon adds an element of airiness to the piece, and I choose to focus on this lightweight feel by keeping the look simple and wearing a nude slip underneath. To play up the silver metal buttons down the front of the dress, I added an Aztec necklace and brought out the wooden garnish by pairing the look with gladiator sandals and tortoiseshell shades.
What I love most about this Justine Hwang dress, found exclusively on Nineteenth Amendment, is the contrast of materials and its versatility. This dress can be dressed up or down, even worn as a swim cover-up, and can also be worn with any color combination underneath. I’ll definitely be experimenting with colors next time I take this for a spin for any final summer rendezvous or future island getaways during winter!
