White After Labor Day!

As I was packing up my summer threads this weekend, I realized I didn't want to say goodbye to some of my clothes just yet. I know what the Fashionistas say about white after Labor Day, but sometimes white just feels right. So, I'm saying screw the fashion rules, and siding with 5 geniuses who chose to wear the crisp color all year round: Mark Twain, Gandhi, Tom Wolfe, and Mick Jagger. I also added Sean "Puffy" Combs to the mix, who isn't technically a genius, but I figure Mark Twain's got extra to share.

Oh, and if that isn't convincing enough, a dapper Jay Gatsby is found showing off his whites in several scenes in The Great Gatsby. Q.E.D. Joan Rivers! Of course, on the other hand the KKK seems to revel in draping themselves in white year round, so I'm not 100% that it's the best look.
