Time and Tide to Go!

Get the white out with Tide To Go!

When I bought this white polo shirt, I was not aware there was a stain on it. Since I got it from my favorite consignment shop (no returns!) I had to find a way to keep the shirt – but keep it white. If you have not already discovered Tide-to-Go instant stain remover, go out and buy it now! It is amazing. You dab it on and watch the stain disappear. For my polo shirt, it worked instantly.

Spring is here and whites are jumping at the bit to take their place of prominence in your wardrobe. But if you are going to wear white, then keep your whites crisp and clean. No stain, even a small one, is worthy of you. The season is just starting – check your closets for any worn whites – remove any stains if you can but if not then let them go! Time and Tide to Go!

Post-Labor Day White Out: I’m buying it!

Fashion rules are made to be broken. One in particular is the old, out-of-date rule to stop wearing white after Labor Day. The Zoe Report knows about fashion do’s and don’ts. One do: wear white after Labor Day. In fact, you can, and you must. White is so crisp and chic; it will enhance your wardrobe year-round. The trick is knowing how. Here are a few tips:

white jeans (as seen above) are a staple here to stay. Mine are boot-cut, but a slim-leg works well, too, with a flat shoe or a simple pump.

season-appropriate fabrics are more practical. According to TZR, as the weather cools, it’s more on-trend to wear white cashmere, wool and twill fabrics. Linen, very light cotton, and seersucker are all associated with hot, summer months, and should be worn only during that time of year.

white blazers and jackets are refreshing alternatives to black. Try adding one.

Enjoy your Post-Labor Day White-Out. I’m buying it!

Women in white

We were three women in white. My cousin Michelle, my mother and me. We had met this week for a mini-family reunion and little did we know that all three of us had chosen to wear white pants with colorful tops. When we showed up for lunch we smiled, through our dark sunglasses of course. Summer arrives and the white pants come out. But it makes sense: it’s fun to go lighter after a season of black and brown and gray. And white pants go with everything and can be dressed up or down. Michelle lives in Florida: like many of us, she saves her white pants for the summer months. But Michelle can always tell a non-native because she can be found wearing white pants in the non-summer months as well. That gives her away!

Bring out your white pants! They say you can now wear white all-year round, but really … there’s nothing like wearing crisp white pants in the summer.
