The one thing you won’t catch me wearing after Labor Day? White pants . . .
. . . but that’s only because I don’t own any.
“No white after Labor Day” is such an antiquated fashion rule. I actually like the idea of winter white jeans, but I’ve never found a flattering pair that isn’t a little bit see-through. Plus, I know I’d be paranoid about food stains each time I sit down to eat with my kids.
However, I’ll continue to wear my white Converse sneakers until my toes crave the warmth of boots with socks. Chuck Taylors look better with cuffed boyfriend jeans and chambray shirts than they do with shorts and tees, anyway.
So I hereby give you permission to keep on wearing your white sneakers after Labor Day. But if you crave a change after kicking it in white kicks all summer, head over to Cool Mom Picks for my roundup of DIY sneaker makeovers, including these studded Converse from A Beautiful Mess.
Would you wear them?
