This time of year always brings out the debate regarding whether or not it’s acceptable to wear white after Labor Day. As a professional, I’m here to tell you, IT’S FINE! Seriously, calm down. It’s not a real rule.
Where did this lame rule originate, anyway?
Sometime in the late 1800’s, women needed to find another way to exclude other women. So, they created a nonsense rule. “It’s not acceptable to wear white after Labor Day.” Now imagine this being said with a lot of vocal fry, “We only wear white for weddings and resort wear.” If women wore their white clothes for other occasions and/or after Labor Day, they were judged. They were viewed as “less than”, because they didn’t have other options. (Imagine what they would think of a capsule wardrobe.)
Long story short, the rule is bullshit, and even Coco Chanel (my kitten’s namesake) thought so.
So, I put together a catalog of outfit options, just for you to feel more comfortable wearing white into fall! Check them out, and let me know if you have any favorites!
