As the Labor Day holiday quickly turns into fall, one thing come to mind: It’s time to debunk one of the oldest fashion myths in the books. You can and totally should still wear your favorite white pants after the first Monday in September.

“The ‘you can’t wear white after Labor Day,’ rule was created to separate the old money elitists from the new money group. “It [was] insiders trying to keep other people out,” Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology explained in a recent interview with Time, “and outsiders trying to climb in by proving they know the rules.”

Let’s face it, rules are meant to be broken.

From creating a winter white monochromatic look by pairing white jeans with your favorite cozy cream sweater and tan suede boots or opting for warmer textures like suede and faux fur, white pants are far from just a summertime staple.

If you want to opt for something that will elongate your legs, try a high-rise silhouette, and if you want to get out of your comfort zone, playing around with wide-leg options is always an unexpected but cool style.

From cropped flares, wide-leg pants or your go-to skinny jeans, we took the liberty of rounding up the chicest choices on the web. Ahead, you’ll find the best white pants that will take your winter wardrobe to the next level.
