Labor Day Style Poll: What Fashion Rules Will You NOT Break?

BlogHer Original Post

Labor Day is upon us, and though the long-abandoned fashion rule of "Never wear white after Labor Day" seems as quaint as a violet posy, someone always brings it up right about now.

And then a discussion usually ensues about how following fashion rules at all has been one-upped by the fashion rule of NOT following any fashion rules.

For example: Mix your prints? Hells to the yeah.

Sequins for day? Absolutely. The more casual the better.

Sneakers with dresses? Totally adorable.

Also adorable? Socks with sandals. If they're the right socks with the right sandals. We're not talking black knee socks with Birkenstocks here, people.
