Playoffs, the time of year where you inevitably ban one entire color from your wardrobe for up to 7 games. With Boston facing Detroit in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, that means saying au revoir to red for a few games, no way will I accidentally wear the opposing color this year. Some of you may recall my tiny snafu wearing “Leafs” blue colored pants to a playoff game against Toronto last year — I’ve yet to live it down.
When it comes to fashion, I’m a firm believer in wearing what you want and in the grand scheme of things, there aren’t really any rules. Wear what you want and more importantly something that you feel good in, no matter the color or time of year. At the end of the day, it’s you who has to live with the outfit you walked out of the house in. That being said, I chose to wear white pants to the game. I’ll be the first to tell you, I think the “rules” of when you can wear white are stupid. If you want to rock a pair of white pants in the middle of a blizzard in mid December with a sweater and boots, do your thing. This whole, you can’t wear white after Labor Day or before Memorial Day is a rule that I consistently and happily break on a yearly basis. Why should I let a perfectly good pair of pants waste away in my closet for over half the year, then only break them out for 2 weeks of wear, because then it’s too hot and shorts become the article of clothing necessary due to the elements. Did the inventor of the white rule ever think of that? I’ll spare you any more of my white pants rant, but moral of the story — they came out for Game 1.
