J. Lo’s Head-to-Toe Look Shows How to Wear White After Labor Day

Everyone knows the age-old rule that you shouldn’t white after Labor Day. But when you’re Jennifer Lopez, you can pull off almost anything.

The “Hustlers” star attended a pop-up store for the launch of her new perfume last night in New York, wearing a head-to-toe all-white look. The singer attended the opening to promote her new scent, Promise, but she was also making headlines Thursday following an announcement that she’ll be joining Shakira to perform at the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show.

For the event, she chose a belted peplum blazer with a deep V and a white skirt — all from Michael Kors.

For footwear, J-Lo had on a set of sharply pointed white pumps with wide belt-like ankle straps.

The origins of the seasonal no-white rule are heavily debated. Time magazine explained in 2009 that wearing white was simply a way to stay cool in the summer and would, thus, be unnecessary after Labor Day. But other theories claim the roots of the rule are socio-political.

Regardless of how it started, big names like Gigi Hadid and Meghan Markle are championing white’s staying power by incorporating it into bold looks from summer-into-fall trends.
