Color Me White

White shoes. You know the rule: between Memorial day and Labor day, and that’s it. Personally, that rule is something I have never understood. Maybe I’m just naive on certain nuances in fashion, but why the white shoe restriction? I mean, they’re white. They go with everything. And don’t tell me the rule is because white is too ‘summer-y’ a color for the fall and winter months because if you haven’t noticed, for most people winter=snow and snow=white, unless you happen to be standing near a busy road. White snow, white shoes. Voila!

There are certain rules of fashion that I choose to break (see earlier post on ‘the basics’). Case in point, my “staple” pairs of shoes are white, and they are worn all year round.


A friend brought up this question a few weeks ago, because she wants to wear a pair of white shoes to school but doesn’t want to commit a fashion faux-pas. I told her to disregard the fact that it is currently after Labor day, and to enjoy wearing her white shoes out in public! Why not? If she puts them with an amazing outfit, nobody is going to care that her shoes are ‘out of season’. Your thoughts on the ever pressing question of when to wear white shoes would be gladly accepted. ^ _ ^
