Short Story

As the summer draws to a close, I feel an urgency of time and season to wear white whenever I can...while I still can.  I dread the eventual dismissal of some of my favorite pieces (like these high-waisted shorts) to the back of my closet where they await Easter Sunday. But truthfully, as a forward thinking individual, I have often thought that the 'no white after Labor day rule' is antiquated. In my opinion the decision to wear a particular color garment should be based more on the fabric type and weather conditions than on the item's color.

   I am not going crazy and suggesting that one should wear a white eyelet and seersucker on Christmas day. I am merely suggesting a small shift in perception concerning weather appropriate whites and their place all year around. So call me crazy, but I think these shorts would look great with a black chunky knit, structured coat, and tights on a cold day. Winter white this year? I say, yes. These shorts have not seen their last week.
