Alex mill white skirt fall 2023

A couple weeks ago, I was interviewing fashion editor Becky Malinsky for our newsletter Big Salad. “Go against any color rules,” she told me. “I always wear white after Labor Day — there’s nothing more glamorous than a white skirt with black tights.”

After hanging up the phone, I decided on my outfit for a party I was hosting that weekend: this white dress with black tights (I actually wanted sheer but they annoyingly ripped as I pulled them on, so I went with opaque). Later, I laughed when my cousin Olivia walked in the door — she was wearing white and black, too!

If you’re similarly inspired, here are a few lovely pieces to wear this fall and winter…

Thoughts? Which would you wear? I’d love to pair with a red lip.

P.S. People share their week of outfits, and would you try this lipstick trick?
