With Easter Sunday quickly approaching next, there is a lot of chatter about pastels, florals, dyed eggs and even a bunny or two. Religious or not, Easter also brings with it "old school" southern fashion rules. Be it white pants (and by pants we also mean white dresses, shoes & accessories) or patent leather, the traditionalist would state that both should only be worn between Easter & Labor Day. However, modern day theorists are much more anything goes.
In the shop we are often asked, what actually is the rule for today's world. And honestly, there isn't just one rule to follow anymore. We've found a lot of factors contribute to each person's decision and ultimately it just depends on what makes you feel good. While there are still many loyalists who abide by the white pants & Easter rule, most don't for patent leather shoes (caveat unless the patent leather shoes in question, are of course white or another spring pastel color). Sometimes it depends on how late Easter is.... when the weather is already mid-80's most people are ready for their spring layers of clothing. Another key factor is the lowcountry life, being a coastal city many consider "resort wear" a year round staple.
Regardless of wear you are on the topic, you can always side with style. Life's better with options & this year it is all about the hem. So when it comes to white denim, take your pick between the trendy raw hem or classic cuffed, both by AG. You can look great and feel good all summer (or year) long!
