Who’s says you can’t wear white beyond Labor Day? I say who cares… and you’re still on the fence about whether or not white should be worn or not… you’re probably not the fashionista you thought you were… LMAO… I’m just playing. But seriously, if you are on the fence of to or not to do, I have the perfect solution for you.
I, for one, can care less about The Almighty Rules to Fashion. No one in particular invented FASHION. There were people who contributed and influenced fashion as we know today, but no one person came up with it and I doubt they came up with any rules for it so it was done the correct way. Never let someone else tell you you cannot do something when it comes to fashion, because it is always changing and no one style is ever exactly the same. I, am guilty of wearing white after Labor Day. I claim it proudly and I’m quite certain that I’ll continue to wear it… even after popular designers call me crazy. Now if you are that person that’s saying, “Weeeeeell, I don’t know about this”, but is open to seeing how you can wear it comfortably enough to not care about the stank eyed stares… here’s how you can do it. You must introduce…
If no one preaches this enough to you, I will. You can wear anything… ANYTHING you want, no matter the season… if you know which colors compliment your skin tone and which colors compliment the current season. Some designers will not tell you this because they want to be in charge of what you wear and what you purchase. Think of this, white is a neutral color (neither warm or cool). The seasons, Summer and Winter are cool seasons… while seasons like, Autumn/Fall and Spring are warm seasons. If your current season is Autumn and you’re wearing all white, how should you adjust your outfit to coordinate to the current season… by introducing warm colors.
For this look, I’ve added in shades of browns and greens (but remember, browns and beiges depending on the hue can either be neutral, cool or warm). Choosing the right metallics can also help warm up an outfit. Grab a basic white Deep V Neck tee and pair it with white high and mid waisted distressed jeans. Make sure when you select your distressed jeans, the rips are visible and higher than the thigh high boots. You want the feature of the jeans to be shown and not hidden. These boots are everything (I just had to say that, lol). You can wear a waistcoat with sleeveless. It is totally up to you. I selected this style because of the up and down temperatures some of us experience during these in between seasons. When choosing your waistcoat, make sure to choose something with flow, curvature and with shape. I’m not fond of the straight, up and down coats with no shape to it. Think: more waves and less hard edges. Plus, it’s pleasing on the eye and looks nice when the wind catches it as you are walking. By this time, your outfit is warming up. I will be going more into this topic throughout the upcoming seasons so you’ll see the transition.
