Do You Wear White After Labor Day?
Even though summer does not officially end until September 21st, many girls store their summer whites (especially shoes) when Labor Day arrives.
For as long as I can remember, I have always heard people say "White after Memorial Day and before Labor Day." If someone was seen wearing white shoes after the first Monday in September (especially in the South), fashionistas and traditionalists were horrified. How dare she wear white!
As for me, if the weather is still hot, I will wear white shoes. Here in the DC area, it can stay very warm until late September. I usually put the whites away when October 1st arrives.
My mother-in-law is from South Florida and she says the year-round warm temperatures make the "no white rule" null and void.
So, do you follow the "no white after Labor Day" rule?
