Life after Labor Day means re-examining your wardrobe and deciding what's going to work for fall and what's going in boxes under the bed.
While you're likely bidding adieu to your Adidas slider sandals, we're here to make the case that your hot pants and disco earrings should stay on your shelves this September. It's not crazy, and here's why: with fall weather heating up and mod looks having their moment, keeping your outfits sparkly and short is a great way to make sure you hold off those winter blues for as long as possible.
Take a page from our September 2011 cover star, Christina Ricci, and go for Twiggy eyes and a silk printed blouse with your hot pants, because brighter is better and hot pants are hot! Who cares about rules!?
