Ferragamo challenges one of the last great fashion taboos

Salvatore Ferragamo Calfskin Tote, $2751 via Luis Via Roma

“You can’t wear white after Labor Day or before Easter!”

Is there actually anyone out there who believes that anymore? I mean, besides little old ladies. Even I, as a daughter of the South and a woman introduced to pearls, slips and “proper dressing” at a young age, think this rule is beyond tired. Winter white is a beautiful thing, and if you’re not entirely convinced, this gorgeous Salvatore Ferragamo Calfskin Tote is here to talk some sense into you. When Ferragamo speaks, you listen.

Why would anyone adhere to a rule that limits the number of days one might be able to carry this beautiful bag? I can’t think of any reasons. Although this bag is graphic white, which is the last bastion of the No White After Labor Day Movement, it would look right at home with a grey sweater and a pair of dark wash jeans, particularly in the fall before the giant, dark coats of winter come out to play.

Don’t get it too close to your denim, though. The one caveat of wearing light leather in cold weather is that you have to be mindful of color transfer, which would be an utter pity if it happened to a piece this pretty. The solution? A long, fluffy cardigan to provide a barrier between your bag and your pants. As if you needed another reason to wear one of those in late October…

Buy through Luisa Via Roma for $2751.
