White after Labor Day

“It's a new era in fashion — there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-and low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.” — Alexander McQueen

Fashion is all about self-expression and feeling like your best self in whatever you are wearing. There are no rules in fashion. I have worked in the center of fashion for years and what I have learned is that it doesn't matter what you wear as long as you do it with confidence.

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” — Rachel Zoe

Go ahead and wear those great white pants before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. White is not just a summer color anymore, and black is always in style. Wear your boots with your sundresses and your wedges with your rompers.

My personal favorite rule to break is that long-held belief that suede is for fall and winter only. Not anymore! I love suede. Suede shoes, suede boots, suede purses and suede clothes. What a great way to transition from summer to fall with rich colors and the texture of suede.

As long as you are expressing yourself through your clothes, regardless of how edgy, soft, sophisticated or classic your outfit might be, it is fashionable. Don't be afraid to push the boundaries and don't be afraid to go classic.

Now go be yourself and have fun shopping.
