White Pants After Labor Day

So the rule of thumb has been no white pants, shoes etc. after Labor Day.  I think in recent years, we’ve thumbed our noses at the rule.  Here are just a few reasons why you SHOULD wear those white pants into the next season (or two.)

  • White jeans, black turtleneck sweaters and black high heeled boots are Jackie-O-so-sophisticated.  Add large silver hoop earrings.
  • Classic jean jackets look better with white jeans.  If you wear a jean jacket with blue denim, it’s ALL JEANS, and  you look like you’re farming or line dancing.  (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
  • Rolled white jeans with a creamy colored cotton sweater look chic, especially with sunglasses and leather flip flops
  • Breton stipes and white jeans were made for one another…add a deep cranberry scarf and a blazer
  • White jeans with a t-shirt and a gauzy scarf are perfect for those warm fall Saturdays


What other combinations can you come up with?
