I live in the midwest and white pants/shorts/capris/sandals, etc. are not worn after Labor Day. My question...do people wear them after Labor Day on a cruise, when where they are going is warm? Is this just a midwest "rule" or does it apply all over the country? Just curious.
No white after labor day is mainly because its winter and no one wants to look like a snow man. It is a "Rule" all over, but not really followed everywhere. If you are goig somewhere warm, I would wear whatever you are comfortable in. I wore white to hawaii after labor day. If you are asking cause you are wondering if you will look silly wearing white on your cruise, the answer is NO...not at all.
By the way...You aksed if it was a rule all over the country or just the midwest. On your cruise, you will be OUT of the courty. So, where whatever the heak ya want to and have fun.
When cruising somewhere warm I wear warm weather colors/attire . . . even white . . . even after Labor Day.

I've always taken white on a Caribbean Cruise. No matter what time of year.......
That idea of no white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day is sorta like my Grandmothers ideas. Subject to change. Like ladies having to wear high heels, a hat and white gloves to Church. When the weather turns warm - or stays warm, I wear summer clothes. The the more comfortable the better.
