A very old and popular fashion saying is that “you can only wear white beginning on Memorial Day and not after Labor Day.” While many designers have disagreed with this statement, I have to say that I think there is at least SOME sensibility behind it. While I definitely can be found wearing my white and off-white tops in the winter, there are several items I would never be caught dead in other than over the summer months.
White pants, shorts, dresses and even some tops should be left to abide by this rule. With Memorial Day this weekend, your chance to wear these white items is right around the corner. The best part about white clothing is that you can match basically anything you want with them. You can also go for different looks with white—a nautical top brings out the preppy side of a white bottom, while a white flouncy dress can appear very bohemian.
