Start With an Outfit...
Dear Adam: You've said it's okay to wear white jeans year-round. But what type of shoe goes with them when it's cold outside?

A: White jeans are more than okay for post–Labor Day weekends; they're seriously cool—and more sophisticated than blue denim. It's important to pick an ungimmicky straight-leg style and avoid bare, summery footgear (strappy high heels, open-toe sandals, flip-flops). Boots, preferably in suede or rough-hewn leather, are excellent for taking these pants into fall and winter. Brown, because it's more casual, is generally better than black. And white denim is a great canvas for a hit of metallics or animal prints—two of my favorite ways to depart from the usual neutrals.
