White Hot

Good old Labor Day. The last "un-official" day of summer and the beginning of the hunt for fall trends. It's been said where I'm from (mid-west) that after Labor Day all of the lovely white slacks, shoes and bags are put out to pasture. No white after Labor Day has been a rule of thumb for years! This rule is rumored to be from the south. It's part of the rule that says white should only be worn after Memorial Day and before Labor Day. The reasons for the rule varies. Some say that white reflects heat and would fail to keep you warm in the cooler months. Whatever the reason wearing white outside of the specific window of these holidays has long been considered a fashion faux-paus. In recent years though, this rule has been given the BOOT! It's officially a rule that can be broken. Some fashionistas maintain that white handbags, shoes or obviously white summer clothes are still a no-no. Other than that, all bets are off. Here are a few finds you may try to work into your fall/winter wardrobe.
