white party

diddy is not hosting, but it’ll still be really fun.

First of all, happy Labor Day! Second, this is not the event coverage from Diddy's last white party, but it is our first official trend report for fall.

You need to know about white leather because it's already become a big thing. Don't worry, black leather isn't going anywhere. We would never let that happen.

Here's why we like it and want you to wear it all the time: It looks tough and clean at the same time. (Unless you're a messy eater. We can't help you there.) If you're going for a dressier vibe, white tends to get that point across way better; if you're going for edgy, wear it with bright green or red.

It's our wearing-white-after-Labor Day loophole, and it's  pretty liberating.

Here's more on breaking fashion rules, not just for the sake of breaking them, but because we think they're stupid.
