Labor Day has passed.
Please put the white pants away.
Now, I’m not a big fan of white pants, shorts, slacks, or capris any time of year, but rules are rules.
The “when can you start rule” is clouded, and doesn’t matter anyway, I’ll not belabor the point, beat a dead horse, or go on about it…but just in case you’re interested: Not until Palm Sunday-if you’re in the South, and not before Easter for the rest of the country. But the Labor Day dictum is a hard and fast rule – universally.
White shoes on men, are a complete and total no no, unless they are running shoes, sneakers, tennis shoes, or you’re the Drum Major of a College band.
White shoes on women are bad enough. But after Labor Day, c’mon!
And, there are some things that should just never be worn together.
Quite frankly, this girl should know better, and has enough money to do better!
And since ‘white pants’ are generally unflattering (with the exception of white jeans) and according to the Urban Dictionary are code for a guy who can’t handle his liquor, and a guy who is “whipped” and several things one can’t post on a “family friendly” blog (…yes it is, and if you don’t think so, you’re just too stuffy!…), and since it’s THE code phrase for to ecstasy…
…and is used when around inappropriate or unsuspecting company, i.e. parents, teachers, probation officers, let’s just stop it with the white pants.
Frankly, I think it should be a “year round’ rule!
Furthermore, since there is no such thing as “winter white” unless it’s a sweater, and since Labor Day has passed, lose the white.
It just ain’t right!
