Can you wear white after Labor Day? This is an age old question of strict fashion rules. Wearing white after Labor Day was considered to be a no ma’am and no sir, but times have definitely changed. Black was considered only for mourning, and sequin was only worn after 5. As we all know that ship has longed sailed. I love ……… my black and now and then give me a little sequin embellishments too 🙌🏽.

Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894, and society eventually adopted it as the natural end point of summer fashion. So this rule goes back more than 100 years. Today’s fashion world is much more relaxed about what colors to wear and when it’s appropriate to wear them. Well for me ….. it all depends 🤷🏽‍♂️! When I say it depends, l generally considered fabric choice and how it is styled. Now if you live in Florida, Cali or anywhere that typically has mild weather year around, you guys can wear what you want whenever you want. ( expect maybe not fur but that’s another post all together 😏) But if you’re in areas like me where we experience all 4 seasons, I suggest we not wear your thin cottons, mesh, and linen fabrics during the winter months.

I went for a very clean look here. The creamy white suit with cream wool coat gave me a great contrast that still allowed the suit to stand out. The tannish gold in the boots, gloves, cuff of the coat, and in the shirt adds to the amazement of this look. Please let me know your thoughts. Do you wear white after Labor Day?
