I’m sure almost everyone has heard the rule floating around at some point in their life; “Don’t wear white after Labor Day.” More and more designers are dismissing rules from their collections. After all who is the one who started these rules, when did they start, and for what reasons?
If you look at the history of fashion, people use to dress in certain ways because of their culture, occupation, family status, etc. The world use to be much more structured when it came to society and what people use to wear. Fashion today is now another creative outlet to express who you are, no longer to say what economic class you are in, your occupation, and/or any other label from society.
The bottom line is, whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor Day is mistaken. The old rules no longer apply to modern day fashion. What I say is, “Real fashion has no boundaries.” As long as the look you’re wearing is well put together for the occasion and expresses who you are, then go for it!
