BCBG Max Azria spring '14


#trend: white out

designers are breaking all the fashion rules on the runways.

by rebecca willa davis

You know the rule: No white after Labor Day.

But you also know that rules are meant to broken--especially come next spring, when new collections start hitting stores in late February.

Because in the first days of New York Fashion Week we've been seeing complete white-outs on the runway. Richard Chai? White leather moto jackets, white midi skirts, and white mesh tops all worn at once. BCBG Max Azria? White crop tops and white loose-fitting pants paired together. Titiana Inglis? White angular blazer worn over a long white maxi dress.

Even when a little color is thrown in--say, at Costello Tagliapietra--it's still pretty basic. (There, it was a simple black leather jacket over color-less leg-hugging pants and a peplum top.)

Best of all, if you'd rather not wait you can start breaking the rules now. We know you've got a few white pieces in your wardrobe already….
