As summer winds down and Labor Day approaches, we must sadly wave goodbye to a few wonderful “warm weather” things–late sunsets, lazy days at the beach, flip flops, and the nostalgic sound of the ice cream truck circling the block four times a day. Thankfully, there is one thing (or color!) that doesn’t have to be rushed out the door–WHITE!
It’s been a longstanding fashion rule, be it inspired by old-fashioned etiquette or the practical temperature properties of the said color, that white should not be worn after Labor Day–no shoes, bags, dresses, linens–you name it! But there are so many ways to say YES to white once fall rolls around, and no, we don’t just mean “winter white!”
White jeans are a staple wardrobe piece and can be paired with a number of colors, (try deep purples, oranges, or hunter greens for fall hues and a drastic pop!) or pair that white dress with a soft, dark cardigan and great boots to give it new feel for cooler weather.
And by the way, just because it’s almost fall doesn’t mean you have to abandon bright colors either! Even on its own, there are so many ways to wear white through the fall and winter…take a look!
And what about that addendum to the rule–no open-toed shoes? We say forget it! Open-toed pumps, especially paired with bright tights and socks this season are on the rise! So wear that white, strut those pumps, and come see us at The Tailor Maid for expert fashion advice, along with expert alterations!!
And hey!–the Today Show agrees with us! Check out yesterday’s segment on adapting your summer wardrobe for fall, and wearing those whites after Labor Day!
Also, don’t forget about our new duplication service! We can make you a little white dress from your favorite black dress too!
So enjoy the rest of your summer dear readers, and we’ll see you soon at The Tailor Maid!
