Say “Yes” To White After Labor Day!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

The Wind of Inspiration Blog - Say “Yes” To White After Labor Day! (Frenchi Boxy Coat, Mexx Turtleneck, Gap Khakis, Cole Haan Oxfords, Audrey Brooke Satchel, Ralph Lauren Belt, Michael Kors Sunglasses, Wittnauer Watch, Asos Pendant Necklace, Sally Hansen Nail Polish)

Obviously, the star of this outfit is the herringbone topper coat that I was lucky to buy on Nordstrom anniversary sale several months ago. Couldn’t wait for the colder weather to wear it. To some people it may look awkward and unflattering but I love its loose, boxy shape combined with traditional tweed fabric and an interesting, vintage cut that makes it a real stylish staple. I adore strangely shaped pieces of clothes like this coat that catch your attention and make you fantasize about what else would you wear it with. And, believe me, it can be styled in lots of different ways. Hope you like it, too, guys! What do you think?

As for the “no white after labor day” rule, I neither liked nor ever followed it. If the weather is appropriate and a white item isn’t too summery then I’d easily go for it. If you, on the contrary, were always afraid to wear whites during fall/winter, then don’t be scared anymore! White color is one of the leading trends this season. Plus, one of the best things about it is that we all have white clothing in our closets, haven’t we? So you don’t need to spend any money to try this trend, just shop your closet!

What about you? Do you follow “no white after labor day” rule or break it?

Also please welcome my new bag (you might have already seen it, if you follow me on Facebook)! My DSW retail stores visits become more and more fruitful every time I go there. This time it's this beautiful and very convenient satchel by Audrey Brooke that also fits my DSLR camera perfectly if I need to carry it with me when I'm dressed up. It’s adorable, isn’t it?
