NO WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY




ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE FROM TIME.COM "WHY WE CAN'T WEAR WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY", "THE ORIGIN OF THE NO-WHITE-AFTER-LABOR DAY RULE MAY BE SYMBOLIC. IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY, WHITE WAS THE UNIFORM OF CHOICE FOR AMERICANS WELL-TO-DO ENOUGH TO DECAMP FROM THEIR CITY DIGS TO WARMER CLIMES FOR MONTHS AT A TIME: LIGHT SUMMER CLOTHING PROVIDED A PLEASING CONTRAST TO DRABBER URBAN LIFE". BY LABOR DAY (THE END OF SUMMER) DARKER FALL CLOTHING WOULD REPLACE THE LIGHTER SUMMER CLOTHES. "BY THE 1950'S...THE CUSTOM HAD CALCIFIED INTO A HARD-AND-FAST RULE". HOWEVER, THE FASHION ELITE, SUCH AS MADAME CHANEL HERSELF, RESISTED THIS COCKAMAMIE RULE BY MAKING " WHITE A YEAR-ROUND STAPLE". I DON'T BELIEVE IN FOLLOWING ANY RULES WHEN IT COMES TO FASHION. WEAR WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF. ENJOY THE WEEKEND!
