No white after labor day.
Have you heard this rule? It’s sort of silly right? But it had me wondering where it came from and why exactly someone had an aversion to light colors during the colder months of the year (if you’re in the northern hemisphere anyway).
Turns out the whole thing started from a bit of old fashioned snobbery. Like seriously old, like 1800s old. Some women in the know decided they needed a way to differentiate their “level of society.” And no white, as it turns out, was just one of the ways.
Fashion rules are funny, and honestly are best when broken.
