Break The Rules: Wear White After Labor Day

September 8, 2012 ‐ By Temisha Palmer

Rules are set in place for a reason, they give us the structure and standards that allows us to determine the rights, wrongs, the dos and don’ts of the world. But when it comes to fashion, some rules are meant to be broken. And now that we have unofficially welcomed the fall season, the old adage “No White After Labor Day” happens to be one of those very rules we can actually forego. So if you’ve planned to put away those white jeans you loved during the spring and summer season, keep them out–you’ll be able to work them into fashionable outfits well into the fall season. One tip to remember: When embracing white after Labor Day, wear white garments that are of a heavier weight; stay away from linen and lightweight fabrics—this way you’ll still be seasonally appropriate.

Here are a few white garments you’ll love breaking the rules wearing….

    Most of these items seem overpriced, maybe am just too cheap!


    that is one stupid rule coz it doesn’t tell us when to start wearing white again so am assuming we are not meant to wear white at all year round only on labor day lol. As for me i wear what i want when i want as long as it is occasion appropriate i am good to go!

  • I really don’t have much white to wear anyway. Not sure why they came out with that anyway.

    I still think white after Labor Day is tacky. Maybe i’m just old fashioned like that….

    I was wearing white jeans and a white blouse with green gladiator sandals and my green purse, earrings and bangles yesterday. My co-worker tried to make a joke about it , and I just looked at her because she sounded stupid as hell, seriously I’m only supposed to wear white on labor day and no more? Girl boo!
