Here's a redo on a post from last winter. I often have people ask me about wearing white "off season".

Before we approach the subject of when to wear white, I need to give you a little background about myself and my white wearing opinions. I grew up in a tiny farm community in TN where Southern women are very serious about their hair, their makeup and their fashion and did I mention their hair?

The "rule" for white used to be that you wore white from Easter to Labor Day. Period. No white pants and heavens forbid no white shoes after the first Monday in September!! That also went along with the rules of don't mix black and navy or black and brown. Make sure your belt matches your shoes. I could go on. We all know that these last few have gone by the wayside. Mix it all and while your at it mix your silver and gold too. It's enough to give a southern girl the vapors.

Now back to 2016, plus the fact that, rather than living in the south, I am living in Southern CA. The land of beach going 10 months out of the year. Santa Anas blowing to keep things nice and warm. Where winter lasts approximately 2 1/2 weeks. Total. So what are the rules of wearing white now? In particular, white pants or denim.

Seems there are none. You can find articles in fashion magazines and blogs all day long on how to wear white in the fall and winter. What boots to pair your white denim with. Wearing white on white in December. Not to mention that around these parts, you will see white sundresses the minute the temp hits 75. I'll admit I've tried it, this wearing white pants in winter. But truth be told, I just couldn't do it. I felt like I was walking around with my dress tucked into the back of my nylons. I love the look. I embrace it for others. But, I couldn't pull it off myself. Those southern roots run deep.

What about the white shoes, you ask. Maybe it's my childhood memories of brand new white church shoes for Easter morning, but I still agree with no white shoes before Easter. That rule can be bent a bit if we are talking white flip flops. This is the Left Coast we're talking about here.

Check out this slideshow below for ways to wear your white through fall & winter. All of these images came from an article on hercampus.com. No one is wearing white shoes, so someone out there must agree with me! :)
