Can I wear white after Labor Day?

There was once a “rule” that wearing white after Labor Day was a faux pas, but what do they say about rules? They’re made to be broken. It was a silly rule anyway.

It’s perfectly acceptable to wear white after Labor Day.

What you want to be careful about is what sort of white clothing you choose in the Fall and Winter months. If you are eyeing that short sleeve white dress shirt or a spring white jacket, don’t do it. Wear a sensible white suit or a white hat, even a long white waistcoat, but don’t make it look like you think it’s May.

 

Wearing white (especially a well-tailored white pinstripe suit) is an excellent way to show off your style when the days get shorter.
