Default No White after Labor Day?


Here's an interesting article on the fashion taboo on wearing white after Labor Day. I tend to believe the explanation that the "fashionistas" were in the North (New York and London), and set the styles accordingly.

But in any case, white has always been permissible all year in tropical and subtropical climates.

This rule, really needs to be put to rest......Around Boston though,, this will never happen, sooo very traditional. People I know who live in Florida, also dress differently in the fall /winter, believe it or not...

Yes, we do dress differently in fall/winter here in Florida. But, it's partly because we get soooo bored with dressing for great weather year round.

No less an authority than the Emily Post Institute says" White may be worn during the summer or when on a cruise". Who are we to argue with such an expert. (The only reason I have white dinner jackets is that I am a Freemason and we dress formally for BBQ's)
