Happy Labor Day y’all! I hope at least some of y’all are enjoying a relaxed day at home or with family enjoying this “last unofficial day of summer!” I took a bit of an early vacation last week to focus on some family stuff and work on some posts for y’all. So I apologize for no post last week! There will be two this week to make up for it!
Since it is Labor Day I thought we’d talk fashion tips because this does mark the unofficial last day of summer, the actual not being till September 22. Not all fashion is universal, something to remember as we go on. However, one fashion rule we have for sure all heard is, “No more white after Labor Day”. How true is this still now in 2016? Well, being that summer has “ended” and white is typically seen as a warmer climate color, it still holds true today to most people. My belief is a little less traditional however, you have a white shirt, sweater, jacket? I saw rock it, no matter the time of year. Now, white pants, I do see them as a strictly “sunny” pant color! I do believe those need to be packed away with the rest of your summer ensembles.
BUT–what does that mean for us that live in “season-less” states? Well, my typical rule of thumb is once the orange and black takeover, it is time to let go of the light pants! For me that’s generally October 1. So for those of y’all in despair about putting away those white pants when you still have warm weather on your side, hold those tears! You still have another month till you relationship goes on hiatus. But do keep those white tops, they are essential to lighten up any wardrobe and keep you from looking too “emo” throughout fall and winter. Also, I do recommend a white thick jacket for winter, they dress up any outfit and is utterly beautiful paired with dark cranberry pants( or any dark pant!) and a black tote. I live for this outfit every winter!
So, for those of you confused by what to do with your wardrobe now that it is Labor Day, just remember if you are cursed to live in a state with not many varying seasons you’re at least blessed to get another month of beautiful fashion in your white pants! And while packing away those florals, do keep out those plain white tops to bring life to a drab dark outfit from time to time.
So break out those booties, ripped jeans, and thicker tops and have a fashionable fall! However, for those of us in a well heated state like Texas, summer really doesn’t end,weather wise, until mid to late October, so fellow Texans–hold on another month and a half before going to fall with your wardrobe or you may overheat!
