There are people who insist that one should not wear white shoes except in summer. Seasonal fashion trends in the nineteenth century may have led to this rule, which some applied to any item of clothing. The truth is that in today’s world, just about anything goes. On special occasions, such as a symphony gala, you may see people dressed like Egyptian queens, with heavy gold accessories, next to patrons in jeans and t-shirts. The jeans might bear designer labels.

An item of clothing designed for summer may not be appropriate for winter simply because it won’t keep you warm. Many summer fashions used to only be made in various white and other lighter hues, so assuming that the color was the reason not to wear white in cooler weather was an easy mistake to make. Current fashion shows frequently feature a rich variety of color nuances, providing a plethora of choices. Go to the website of a favorite retailer and see what is available in any color that interests you, including white. A site such as Offers.com can be your gateway to well-known merchants, with special prices to boot.
You can shop for white accessories, suits, dresses, shirts, or pants for fall or winter to flaunt your disregard of the old rule. If white garments or accessories complement your complexion, hair, and body type, by all means wear them. Remember that the seasonable suitability of a garment is determined more by design, texture, and fabric than by color.
