While I’m an open advocate for wearing white jeans whenever you want (see Winter Whites ) – I will admit that there is something that feels very right about wearing white jeans in the summer.
The “no white after labor day” moratorium was relevant in the 19th and early 20th centuries, when it made since to wear light colors to beat the heat because air conditioning had yet to come about. Summer was notably between Memorial Day and Labor Day, so the rule was practical……back then. It’s 2017 now.
Times have changed and while wearing white during the summer feels right, it’s completely acceptable to rock it year round. Wear whatever you want, whenever you want. Here is me, running around Brooklyn, New York in my white jeans by Melrose & Market. Top is a recent treasure I picked up at Target.
UPDATE: It’s now October and thus, officially FALL. The Summer to Fall transition is always rough for me not only because I lose my toasted mocha tint, my allergies also go BANANAS forcing me to puff on my inhaler every two hours like clock work….oh and don’t even get me started on the temps dropping……
But anyway, this year I’m relying on retail therapy to get me by. I squaded up with a few other blogger babes to talk about our favorite Fall trends this month. I knew I loved these gals when the first suggested trend was “white after labor day.” Check out their stances here:
