Kelly Ripa Breaks Cardinal Fashion Rule on ‘Live’—and Now We’re Inspired to Do the Same

When it comes to her style choices, Kelly Ripa throws the rulebook out of the window. Last week, she paired a cobalt dress with a bright pink belt and today, the 49-year-old wore white after Labor Day (gasp!).

On Wednesday, the producers of Live with Kelly Ryan shared a behind-the-scenes video on the show’s official Instagram account. In the clip, we see Ripa making her way to the set to begin filming. For the occasion, the TV co-host looked chic in a white blazer, black blouse and a pair of black trousers.

Of course, we’ve been told for as long as we can remember to say goodbye to our eggshell and ivory pieces once the summer months come to an end. However, we were never ones to follow the rules (we see them more like suggestions anyway). And especially now that the 49-year-old actress broke the mold, we feel pretty confident wearing white well into fall.

Since her return to the set of the morning show, the mother-of-three has really stepped up her fashion game. As we mentioned earlier, she’s even taking risks with color pairings we would have never thought to put together. Last week, Ripa opted for a navy Lyss Dress by Rachel Comey with a pair of blue suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi. She topped off her look with a bright pink Prada belt, wrapped tightly around her waist.

Looks like we’re not putting our white jeans away after all.
