With Labor Day weekend right around the corner I wanted to bring attention to a fashion rule that In my opinion needs to be reevaluated, wearing white after labor day. I started to do some internet research for the sake of my curious mind. I wanted to know where and why this rule came about so I did what any reasonable person would do I googled it & believe it or not I could not find the source of this rule.
One of the reasons that I found that made sense was temperature. This one is kind of obvious
not much explaining to do. It’s safe to say that we know that white is a cool color and can be worn in the summer to keep us feeling fresh so clearly people tend not refrain from wearing dark colors in the summer simply because they attract sunlight.
Pretty reasonable right? Well some people do not agree. Another explanation that I found had to do with social class, this goes as far back as the 1920’s. We’re all familiar with Resort collections right? (If not click here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cruise_collection) well if you had money to go away for the summer to say perhaps a resort you would be considered to be of a higher class and therefore once you returned from your summer vacation it would be appalling to be seen in white ha ha or so imagine.
Regardless of the reasoning behind it (which I don’t think has any logic) or who decided to implement it, I believe white can be worn gracefully all year round, don’t believe look for yourself.
Coco Chanel was known for wearing white year round
