As we go into the holiday weekend and begin to usher in the wonder that is Fall, I've been thinking a lot about cool weather wardrobes.
I grew up amongst traditional Southern women who were committed to not wearing linen, seersucker, white shoes and pants, sandals, shorts and flip flops after Labor Day and before Easter. To take it a step further, I distinctly remember not being able to wear shorts (no matter the temperature reading) before Memorial Day.
As an adult, I've kept true to most all of these sartorial mores but there is the matter of white denim pants. I tend not to be afraid to wear them beyond September. I've sported them with a wonderful heather gray sweater and a suede boot or cheetah peep toe. I contend that gray, chocolate and black can warm up white denim. Add a scarf and nice bag and you reek sophisticated chic. I do not mind being a risk-taker in this regard. Now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever gotten a second glance. Someone on Twitter said it best yesterday, "When it comes to fashion, do what you want."
