Nothing screams summer quite like a pair of crisp, white jeans. They speak of barbecues, sandals, fresh-squeezed lemonade and long lazy weekends. And now that Memorial Day is behind us, you can finally wear your stark whites, right? Well, just so we’re clear: the old “no-white-after-Labor-Day-and-before-Memorial-Day axiom” is about as passe as a $3 gallon of gas. It got tossed out about the time that those fickle fashion folks made a rule that there would be no rules. So go ahead, work those white jeans. And save some cash while you’re at it; the Converse One Star jeans (the pair on the right) are cuter, IMO, and are about 1/4 the price of the others shown.
