Hello Loves…Happy Labor Day!
Ribbed knit matching set with Dooney and Bourke (white after Labor Day). It may just see like I make it a point to style white after Labor Day, even though it’s not as shocking as it would have been a decade ago, but it’s only because…it just happens! See my previous white after Labor Day posts here, here, and here. So, today I’m styling a Ribbed knit matching set with Dooney and Bourke (white after Labor Day) look.
Ribbed knit matching set with Dooney and Bourke (white after Labor Day) (OOTD)
Anyways, this knit wear, ribbed set from @bcbgmaxazia is the perfect transitional piece into the fall season, winter (as a winter white), and also spring. Y’all know I try to get a bang for my buck whenever possible, so this piece is it, perfect for mix and match! I love that the top features a wide v-neck, showing the décolletage and flared slit sleeves. This makes it easy to pair with jeans, and still win.
In the same fashion, the skirt features an exposed zipper that allows you the freedom to extend the front slit to your preference. Not only that, just like the top, it can be paired with a different top to achieve a totally different look. However, I chose to style them together because I wanted that stylish, fresh white look.
In addition, although I paired them both to achieve that seamless look, I still show some subtle variations in the look to add some flair and sophistication. So, to keep the outfit monochrome, and add some structure to the knit wear, I opted for this tasseled nude belt you’ve previously seen here. For footwear, I went all white, then restyled with this animal print pumps for some color and edge. Besides, the edgy vibe of the animal print pumps complements the subtle grungy vibe of the frayed and destructed denim jacket.
Finally, in one look I sport this Dooney & Bourke Florentine handbag (my first Dooney, by the way), while in another look, I carry this Chanel bag, also seen here and here.

- Style as all white, but add this clutch instead. Also, try this one.
- For the fall, style with these amazing booties instead. So obsessed with it!!
- Also, style with tall or knee high boots to amp up your sex appeal.
- Like I mentioned above, mix and match the pieces to make several different outfits. Style the top over these jeans for the ultimate cool girl vibe.
Alternative look with a pop of red and animal print pumps for some needed edge to this soft look.
The embellished and distressed denim jacket adds an easy, cool-chic vibe to my look, by cooling down the ultra feminine factor of my whole ensemble. Also, note how I rolled up my sleeves and flipped my collar for added drama and ‘tude.
On the other hand, draping the denim jacket over my shoulders adds a chic street-style red and vibe to my look.
