I have a hard time following this fashion rule...I am a firm believer in "if you like it, wear it". There is no need to worry about what society is going to say about the color of your top or the length of your cuffed jean.
Freak what ya feel. This weekend I was feeling my favorite 3/4 sleeved dress that jut so happened to be white. But mostly because it went great with my brand new Dolce Vita booties.
Fall is here and fall is fun...fashion "rules" are not.
