Wearing White After Labor Day?
« on: September 12, 2009, 11:52:01 pm »
Is this really a fashion no-no this day and age or what?
I personally see nothing wrong with it.  What's your opinion?

i really don't think that "rule" is even floating
around anymore. i never understood the point
of it, but i'm sure a quick google search would
fix that  :P

as far as i know, its dead among other fashion taboos,
like the right ear being pierced on a male "means
your gay."

i pierced ears at my previous job and countless
people (of all ages &genders) would ask, "does it
mean i'm gay if i just get my right one done?"

gah, i'm not even sure if subjecting myself to the
ignorance was worth the trade off a paycheck  :bs:

I think this is an old wives tale that got started a century ago.  I have never paid too much attention to such thoughts.  Its ridiculous.

I think white works whenever. A great white winter coat can be very chic.

On the west coast, people have never followed those rigid rules.

I'm pretty sure it's not even a rule we consider highly anymore, if it was a rule at all.

I hear that all the time. I wear white and so does my daughter. Why should we have to wait around for Spring or Summer to wear white. If we have something that we love in white flaunt it and enjoy it.

I love the color white especially in jeans and the right fit. if I could wear white in the winter time I would. Labor day rules for not wearing right, who came up with that the fashion people. Maybe they wear white themselves and just don't want people to know

I think "What Not Wear" said that it is okay to wear white after Labor Day.  I always have, I have never paid attention what the current fashion rules are. ;D

Wear whatever you want I could care less about what other people wear.

The 'no white after Labour Day' rule is as old as  the 'match your purse to your shoes and belt' rule.  Nowadays, people stick more to the current trends than the old-school rules.

Personally, I don't give a darn about the rules and trends of fashion, and wear whatever I like. If it fits you properly, feels comfortable, and suits your tastes, who cares what colour it is?
