I’ve never really followed the "no white after Labor Day" rule. Sure, white is undeniably a summer color, but for me the connection is more about temperatures than dates on a calendar. So when the weather got unseasonably warm this week, I grabbed my favorite pair of white pants to head out for lunch. They’re the perfect length (no alterations required) and they have lots of chic details: cuffs, undersized pockets, and double buttons at the waist. To keep things within reason I steered clear of bright colors for the rest of the outfit— summer is officially over after all.
