White Out! White In After Labor Day!!!!

Does anyone remember “white out”? That wonderful white liquid that could erase any typewritten mistake.  For that matter, does anyone remember the typewriter??? If you answered “yes”and “yes”, then I bet you remember the advice of Emily Post and others, “no white after Labor Day”.

White Out, White In After Labor Day! #Looks Speak

White Out, White In After Labor Day! #Looks Speak

The first Monday in September (next week folks!) is the holiday honoring all workers in America and the unofficial end of summer.  Some where along the way Americans decided wearing white after Labor Day was a fashion faux pas. In 1920 Coco Chanel made white a year long statement, yet still, many Americans can not do the same in 2016.

Looks Speak says, do it! Be brave, follow Coco’s footsteps, wear white after Labor Day. In fact, wear white all year long!  Can’t get your arms around it?  Here are five ways you can take baby steps toward incorporating white year round.

  1. Wear White with Fur (fur signals winter, perfect way to offset summer association of white)
  2. Wear White with Leather  (leather, a winter staple tames the white)
  3. Wear White with Velvet (heaviness of velvet offsets the summer feel of white)
  4. Wear White with Black Accessories (gloves, handbags, tights)
  5. Wear White with Heavy Sweaters (sweaters, a nod to winter is permission to wear white pants)
