While I dread the declining temperatures, winter’s arrival sparks the beginning of a new fashion season. Say hello to knee high socks, coats, scarves, turtle necks, alpaca, angora, fur, suede, leather, wool, and the list goes on. ‘Tis the season of layering!

Multiple layers not only keep you warm, but developing an art of layering means more clothing options, accessories, and decisions — essentially emphasizing your personal style.

A great coat is an important winter wardrobe staple.

“NO white clothes after labor day.” This is a misconceived notion that most of us have believed. I, for one, never follow such rules. I figured that if designers produce white apparel post Labor Day, then there is absolutely no reason why I should not wear white.

Nonetheless, I was curious as to how this belief came to be and why so many of us continue to follow it.
