If you're a traditionalist you are probably getting those whites in your closet ready for a long nap. But as it turns out this fashion faux pas of wearing white after Labor Day is no longer so defined. 

According to Emily Post, back in the day, the signal to mark the change between summer resort clothes and those worn for the rest of the year was summarized by the mandate, “No white after Labor Day.” But we live in an age of relaxed rules and warmer days that extend well past the calendar definition of fall.

Darrell Hemsley , what do you think about white after Labor Day?

White after Labor Day is acceptable as long as you mix colors, and have a falll aesthetic. In fact, Vogue declared this archaic ideology void a few years ago. I just may write about this.

Would you write a tip about this for the community? Darrell Hemsley

Here in Spain, white dresses from Ibiza are very popular, and you don't need a very special occasion to wear them if you combine them with denim jackets and boots. It looks really boho if you like this style.
