This question is one that has boggled the mind of many fashion scholars sparking ugly debates and fits of fashion rebellion. What is it? “Is it okay to wear white after Labor Day?”
Now, this question is a valid one. Every year, the information released by fashion gurus on the topic is sketchy at best. Oprah sends out the word that it’s perfectly okay to wear white after Labor Day while her competition Tyra Banks says it isn’t. So who is right? The answer is both. Certain clothing attire are okay to wear after Labor Day while others or not.
The rule of thumb to follow after Labor Day is not to wear anything white below your waist. So that means that you should store away all of your white pants, skirts and shoes. Wearing them after Labor Day will make you look like a fashion reject. Instead, replace these items with beautiful fall colors: greens, blacks, blues and browns. These colors will make you look festive and ready for Fall. And, if you are really into white, you can top them off with a nice white or crème sweater.
Feel better now? I know you do. The question of wearing white after Labor Day is a big one. It can ruin holidays and other festive events because the fashion police are always lurking around reading to give you a verbal ticket. However, now you know enough information to fight it. You can wear white after Labor Day as long as you follow a simple rule and be the bell of the ball.
