For some reason, generations past have so decreed that white shall not be worn until after Memorial Day and put away promptly on Labor Day. For those who live in warm climates all year round, what's up with that? Maybe white needed dried outside in the sun to keep it's crisp lack of color, but folks, white is as much a staple as black or navy. White makes all colors pop and appear fresh. White sets of black like no other color. Don't pack away your whites a few months from now....keep them in the all year round closet. Now your tropical prints...that is another consideration all together.
