Times when it’s appropriate to wear white:
- Your wedding day.
- A breezy evening on the beach.
- After Labor Day.
We’ve never been ones to follow fashion rules to a T. So, even though we grew up hearing “don’t wear white after Labor Day,” we regularly break that rule. (Winter whites anyone?)
But this “rule” that comes up every year is particularly interesting to us. Where does this belief originate from? After some quick research we found answers. A) The rule seems to have come from the practice of traditionally wearing white during summer months to keep cool. Labor Day signified the end of summer, so many people quit wearing lighter clothing to mark the end of the season and the transition back to school and work. But we also learned that, B) just about everyone is breaking it.
So, naturally, post-Labor Day we slipped on two of our current favorite LWDs, and headed out the door. Rules are meant to be broken, right?
