    My mom and grandma are adamant about the "no white after labor day" rule. How do you ladies feel about it? For me, if I feel like wearing white, then I wear it whenever. As a matter of fact, I am going to wear white suit and a black on Tuesday. :grin:

    yes ma'ma. Away with the rules I'm a rebel!!

    Really I love to wear white jeans and I really love to wear off white in the winter time. But I will also wear white.

    I'm a true southern girl. No white shoes, skirts, or pants after Labor Day. Also no searsucker, no linen, no straw hats (I don't wear hats anyway), and no summery florals after Labor Day. To each her own, but that's how we roll in my family.

    I used to never wear white. I thought it was the height of tackyness. I have 2 small leather stachels and i have a cream pair of jeans i have never worn. I'm sorry i just can't wear white trousers! Don't get me started on white shoes

    I wear white after Labor Day. I think it's a silly rule. Nobody's gonna tell me what to wear or when I can wear it.

    I believe that we can all wear whatever we want when we want, but for me, winter white is a great look after Thanksgiving, and I hate white shoes everday any time of the year (once again YOU can wear whatever YOU want to wear). Well, I do have a cute pair of off white sandles that are lovely, but they're almost nude.

    a high fashion designer would laugh at such a "rule."
    to be honest, that's really big in the south where i'm from, but in more fashionable cities like in ny and la no one abides by that. most have never even heard of it!!
    i wear what i want when i want to.
    i love white around christmas holiday.
    i just love white whenever.

    No... and to me it sticks out like a sore thumb after Labor Day. I also don't consider winter white really white. So that doesn't count.

    I wear whatever I feel like whenever I feel like as long as it is appropriate for the setting.

    I'm originally from the midwest and heard about that rule all my life. I moved down south and also heard that rule. Have friends in NY and CA and they also have heard of that rule. I don't wear white after labor day but do wear winter white, off white, cream....whatever you want to call it. I honestly have no desire to wear white after Labor day. White is a summer color to me and after Labor day I am sick of the heat and ready for Fall to come anyway. This is in regard to pants, shoes, shorts, skirts, etc.... I still wear white tops depending on the type of top.

    With fashion changing all the time I think its just an old rule that some people stick to and some don't.

    Great question. It's always interesting to see the replies to this question. People wear what they feel comfortable in. I don't think its a "rule" at all really. Either you wear white after Labor day or you don't. I don't personally because I feel a little silly wearing a bright summer color during the Fall or Winter months. It does get a little hard right after Labor day because its still pretty hot and I haven't stopped wearing my summer clothes and colors.

    I think you are right on by wearing what you like when you like it.

    I love "winter" white after labor day. I don't wear white, but I will definitely wear creams and other "winter" whites during the fall and winter. I actually wear creams almost all year.

    Yes, I also love "winter" white. Off white, ivory, cream, etc..... Great winter colors in my opinion.

    I agree! Some chick at my job said some thing to me about a white shirt or some thing and I told her that until she can afford to buy me new clothes, then don't even bother to address me about not wearing white.
    It was also the first time I knew about that rule.

    I really don't care.

    I don't care about the 'rules'. (My grandmother would SO not approve) I wear what I want. Now, I absolutely HATE white shoes. I don't think I've owned a pair since I was saying easter speeches in church. BUT, I love white pants and I wear those all year 'round. Winter white is so pretty. But so is bright summer white. I always feel so fresh and so clean when I wear white. :yep:

    I have a pair of white boots that also love to wear in the winter. They also draw positive attention.
