Why Wouldn’t You Wear White After Labor Day?

-------

Once, only the brave wore white after the first weekend in September (and by brave we mean French and/or those in possession of a generous dry-cleaning budget). But that old edict hasn’t really applied for a while, and judging by Fall collections from the likes of Thakoon Panichgul and Gucci‘s Frida Giannini, a pair of white pants is now a winter wardrobe essential. According to Jill Stuart, though, the shade’s prominence has less to do with breaking rules than harmonizing palettes. “Loden green and camel are big this season, and white freshens those darker shades up,” she pointed out to us. “A creamy color makes everything brighter.” That was certainly the case at Reed Krakoff, where full, ivory trousers were paired with a swaggering navy coat and charcoal sweater. And, of course, white jeans, like the cropped ones we’re coveting from Isabel Marant, can freshen up any outfit. Just remember to factor your cleaning bills into the purchase price.

    The link is incorrect. It goes towards lace.

    It really looks good on the runway, and it’s pretty hard to wear it correctly. I liked most of the stylings, but I would wear white pants only in dandy style – like at Emporio Armani, or at Chanel, where was a similar outfit, or

    The white pants are extremely elegant and illuminate the look as a whole. They are excellent for a special occasion.

    definately white for fall, white can really brighten and break up the melancholy feel, I just love it and who wants to put away summer whites right away anyway…..it is just divine.
