    White wouldn’t you?

    Well it is officially fall (even though it is going to be a hot and sunny day in Boston today) so the question today is would you wear white after Labor Day?  My friend Aleena and I were discussing this issue and I said I typically do not wear white jeans, cropped pants, or linen pants in the fall/winter.  Although, I continue to wear white blouses and cardigans and I still carry my winter white handbags in the fall and winter.   However, after seeing some of these great 2010 fall looks featuring white and ivory pants by Thakoon Panichgul, Gucci, Jill Stewart, Reed Krakoff, and Isabel Marant I would definitely reconsider.  I love the looks so much that I think having a pair of white pants is now a fall/winter wardrobe essential!

    What are your thoughts on wearing white pants in the fall and winter?

    I love a well-cut pair of white pants, but since I can't pull them off anyway, I'm lucky that this question is irrelevant for me…

    Oh my, I love white anything. White trousers are so chic. I don't wear them very often because they get dirty too quickly… shame, really. I need to change my ways!

    The rule makes more sense for white shoes in winter than clothes.

    You have an awesome dressing sense. Will look up to you for some inspirations. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I love white so I never followed the rules!!!! Especially here in North carolina…It's officially Fall but it's so hot….Anyways I think I've my own rules, be it Indian clothes or Western!!!! Love the Thakoon look…..

    that rule has been a no go for a LONG time now – WHITE in the WINTER is totally a GO! .. all the designers and fashion people say it's GOOD TO GO and i AGREE – i SO will wear white jeans in the winter!!!!! .. i think it looks FABULOUS!

    I look super fat in White Bottoms so I avoid them throughout the year but if I had the legs I would wear these regardless of fall/summer!

    September 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTanvi

    Goodness I wish I can afford The Row! I'd wear white, you know back here, I'd totally blend in with the mountain of snow!

    Love the Gucci and the Pucci. Oh, that rhymes haha.
    Can never so no the Pucci. That coat is fabulous with the white.

    Erika-that is great!!! I love mine and literally wear them ALL the time. So glad you got a pair.

    I always adore winter white in the cold months.

    September 22, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercoolkids

    I think material is so much more important than color! White linen in winter? Never! But white wool is a whole different story. BTW, will you be at the Halston movie screening next week with Sammi? Hope to see you!
