Every once in a while, fashion rules come up on the Fashion Huntress. One rule that often comes up is “no white after Labor Day,” which we’ve pretty much all agreed is not really a rule anymore anyway. I completely agree, so I’m celebrating breaking rules, or lack thereof, in all bright white. I hope everyone had a nice long weekend; they always seem to just go by too quickly, right? Ah well, four more days until the next one…

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Summer white, despite no real rules, does seem to be slightly different that winter white. I actually saw an interesting article in Vogue about the apparent difference:
As you know, my general rule is that there are no rules, just wear what you love! But, nonetheless, I did enjoy looking through and reading the article. And, I agree that ivory and cream seem to lend themselves well to fall and winter.
2) Speaking of rules, I went back and forth about wearing hot pink shoes at work quite a bit. As you may know, I have worn them before at work and, ultimately, decided that they are fine at work if toned down quite a bit. I think the all white look makes the shoes still look quite bright, but not overly “showy.” I’m a firm believer that many things that can worn at work, as long as it’s done in a more “conservative” way. Fun shoes deserve to be worn, after all. I mean, you wouldn’t want them sitting all lonely in your closet, right? Lol, okay, I need to stop talking about how clothes and shoes have feelings.
Anyone else have white rules? Non rules? I hope everyone has a great day! Thank you for stopping by!
