By now we all know {or at least I hope we do!} that not wearing white after Labor Day is a total fashion myth. You can wear any color you want during any time of the year. It’s really all about the material, not the color.

This week’s Thrifty Threads post is an ode to the girls who wear what they want, when they want, like this head to toe white look that features a mix of thrifted pieces and cheap chic department store finds.

If you follow along during my Snapchat {@PatriceJWill} shopping chronicles, you saw my Macy’s visit last week. I purchased an amazing jacket, but also this white sheer skirt that was on clearance for $17. Again, wearing white is all about the right material for the weather, so white linen pants won’t work for winter, but white jeans absolutely will. And I can still get a few months of wear out of this sheer white skirt, especially if I pair if with a seasonal material {this time I went with a classic Hanes men’s tank}.

As for accessories, it was all about my fave thrifted pieces, including nude Michael Kors heels that I wear at least twice a week. Nude always gives the illusion of longer legs, so maybe that’s why these are in heavy rotation. A mix of gold and silver bangles and a large cocktail ring worked well with my elephant barrel purse I scored from a vendor during Essence Fest a few years ago.

I absolutely love this look. It’s simple, clean and chic. And somehow I managed to not stain my clothes at all during the day. That’s pretty epic for me!

Do you wear white year round? What other fashion myths do you think need to be debunked?
