Who Said You Can’t Wear White after Labor Day?

Who Said You Can’t Wear White after Labor Day?

No white after Labor Day? Who made up this rule and why should people follow it?! Wearing the color white can be chic, fashionable and even glamorous when worn appropriately. So when did it become common culture to not wear this color. Well, back in the day (early 1900s), the post–Labor Day moratorium on white clothing and accessories was one of the major fashion etiquette rules. This rule did not last for very long as people realized that white can and should be worn year round (think Coco Chanel and her signature white suits!).

Without further ado, I leave you with my interpretation of all white and the futuristic aspect this color brought to my photo shoot with the awesome photographer Dion Burton.

    First, you look gorgeous. Love the look, hair and makeup. The location is calming and looks great with the look. Yes, I am all for white after labor day as long as the the fabric is a fall/winter fabric (ie no white linen).
