So your Momma and your Grandma has probably scolded you for wearing white after Labor Day? Or you attempt to rock white after Labor Day and get the stink eye from people as you pass them on the street? Well guess what???? You’re right and they are WRONG! White after Labor Day is a definate DO now and absolutely go ahead and ROCK IT!
Oh believe me, it’s taken me awhile to get used to the idea…but I’ve fashionably evolved over the years and find myself pushing the envelope all of the time of what you should and shouldn’t do. I honestly think that fashion is one’s ability to express themselves…safely sometimes…but none the less, it’s definitely an expression of ones personality!
The good thing is, retailers are now carrying whites into the Fall Winter. And I’m not talking just cream sweaters and long sleeve tops…but you will be able to find jeans, pants, skirts and dresses! Personally, I feel that a white dress at the holidays is beautiful and almost fairy-tale like. So you are asking yourself what is the different between warm weather whites and cool/cold weather whites? It’s the fabrics my friends. Also, you will find different shades of whites in the cooler months than in the hotter months. Whites in the cooler months will be softer, not as “bright white” but not necessarily cream. You will see soft whites and off whites. BIG different between Cream and Off White. Creams have a yellowish huh to them…off whites hold a slight tinge to a bright white. Okay, maybe that didn’t sound so appealing, “a tinge”….well, you know what I mean!!!
As you see above, I’m ropcking shorts…o.b.v.i.o.u.s.l.y. but only because it is still hotter than Hades here in Tulsa, OK! Believe me, I am craving jeans and Fall attire, but our weather is making that rather difficult and seems to laugh at me everytime I think about dressing for cooler temps. So, from my ‘Transition” post…I am still having to improvise. Uggggggg. Anyways, back to my outfit. I paired this rust/stripe cold-shoulder top with white shorts. It’s a great transition look, especially with the slip-on booties! I picked up this cute top at Suite One here in Tulsa, a local boutique in our beautiful Utica Square. It’s going to be perfect for this Fall too and I’ll throw a long cardi over it when it gets even cooler.
Now, these chicks below are right on point with their white after Labor Day. Pulling in boots and booties is a must!
Happy Friday Eve!!!
