This is an issue that has been debated about since before Justin Timberlake brought sexy back. Today, I predict every girl will be wearing her white sun dress, shoes, or skinny jeans for the last time till next spring. Or at least for the last “legal” time.
It’s not like the temperature drops twenty degrees tomorrow. And in Columbia we will still be wearing shorts well into November. As a wise friend of mine once said,
“We’re in the south. We can wear seersucker on Christmas Eve if we want.” –Connor Mitchell.
It’s true though, dress for the weather, who cares the season. We stop wearing white after Labor Day because that’s what our mothers told us to do, because that’s what their mothers told them to do. It is an illegitimate, unethical rule that I am officially dubbing as outdated.
So here are the top ten reasons to defy the laws of Labor Day:
- Winter white is going to be hot this season.
- If we had class on Labor Day, the holiday would be ignored.
- If you’re still tan from summer, you should be able to flaunt it with white.
- My white skinnies are the most loved item in my closet, and I shouldn’t have to give them up yet.
- White matches everything. It looks awesome with black, red, floral, argyle… You name it, it goes.
- White is flattering and classy – two things every girl strives for. If that’s not what you’re striving for please stop reading this article.
- Breaking the rules is fun when it’s legal (and sometimes when it’s illegal but that’s beside the point). Bottom line: breaking this rule is hurting absolutely no one.
- It’s a shock factor. It makes people stop and stare for a positive reason. I highly approve such attention.
- Snow is white – that is all.
- Give me one good reason to not wear white after Labor Day. I bet you can’t.
This is not a license to look like an Easter egg or an angel every day. This is a license to rock white like it’s your wedding day.
