Wearing White After Labor Day


Photographer: Krysten Robertson

Everyone has heard the age old rule “you can’t wear white after labor day”. Ever wonder why there is (or was) a social rule placed on colors and clothing? This rule (more like societal trend) came about at the turn of the twentieth century. Wealthy women believed that it was not acceptable to wear white (which is meant for cooler temps) when the season of summer officially ended. Once labor day came into effect in 1882, high society decided this would be the official end of summer, therefore the end of white clothing.

But we will leave the past in the past, and luckily most of the world is leaving that fad behind. Wearing white throughout the fall and winter is being embraced, and I love it! I am seeing so many amazing white pieces in stores and online. I snagged this white tunic from H&M and I look forward to wearing it all season long.
