Vol 39 for VIP

No white after Labour Day

The last few years has seen the advent of winter white. The trend comes from Italy which rarely has to vie with the weather that most in North America deal with. Yet, North Americans have taken to the trend like bees to honey, essentially debunking the rule in the midst, right? Not necessarily so. It still applies to shoes and bags (but really, how many of us wear white pumps anyway) and, as if you need to be told, keep that white linen in the closet until the warmer weather hits. But there's no reason why you shouldn't embrace white wool pants and white wool coat. Both are great winter items. Just remember, you wouldn't want to turn those winter whites into winter blacks.
