The most well-known fashion rule today… you don’t wear white after Labor Day. But do we even know why that’s a rule? I honestly had no idea why so I did some research (aka Googled and read the first three articles) and I’m annoyed at what I found. And once I tell you, you’ll probably feel the same.
Long story short: a group of snobby, old-money-rich housewives weren’t down with the fact that middle-class women who had new money were stepping on their turf. So they had this
brilliant dumb idea to implement secret fashion rules, including today’s topic, to distinguish themselves from the others. Since white is known as a summer color and Labor Day marked the end of summer, this is where the rule came to life.
Since I can remember, I have been following this dang rule and all because some snooty rich bitches created rules in the 18th century out of malice. Well here’s my opinion:
F*** it. Wear white after Labor Day!
I think by now, people should know that as long as you’re not walking around with your goodies hanging out, you should wear what you want and to hell what others say. Be expressive in your style, wear what makes YOU feel confident and just do you, boo.
I have days I want to look edgy. Some days I’m feeling girly and preppy. Other days, I want to walk out in my PJ’s. But I wear what I feel confident in. If I’m feeling bloated in my stomach, I steer clear from high-waist skinny jeans and grab a flowy top. If I’m feeling extra skinny, I throw on that bodycon dress I love. I wear what I want and feel good doing so…and so should you!
This look is all about the neutrals aka my favorite colors. All of the items I’m wearing are closet staples (more on closet staples here) because they’re not going out of style any time soon! This faux leather drape jacket in nude is the perfect ‘chic’ piece for Fall that will go with eeevery color and add a little edge to your look!
My white jeans are my second favorite white jeans. They are great for curvy girls and on sale right now! My second favorite pair I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year and I should have bought like 3 pairs (I love them THAT much!) Unfortunately, they’re sold out now but I’ve found a new love for SP Black jeans thanks to the #nsale! They fit so well because most of them are high-waisted. They fit my thighs and butt great and they don’t leave a gap between my back and my waist like most jeans do! I linked both pairs of white jeans and other SP Black jeans I have below:
What are your favorite pair of white jeans?! And the real question… what do YOU think about the ‘no white after Labor Day’ rule??
P.s. – Wouldn’t it have been way cooler if my name was Katy? To match the building behind me in these pics?! LOL
