Exactly. Wear what you like; wear what's suited to the weather, and to hell with everyone else.

I'm thinking the only non-negotiable rule about white is that you don't wear a white dress to a wedding.

Unless it's your own.

In the South, it's still in the 80s and 90s, can one wear white pants or white shorts?

So who is deciding you cannot wear white at a specific time? The fashion police? Who the hell cares what you wear or when you wear it. Your clothes, your choice unless of course you are a fashion trend follower then by all means follow all the rules that few others care about.

Weather is key- you see more white and brighter colors in the Sunbelt- all year..

People wearing bright colors during the cold parts of the year, in Northern areas, kinda stick out like a sore thumb...I know it did in Seattle anyway...However, I notice the elderly or adolescents dont seem to care about coordinating clothing colors with season.

The weather, your location and region dictate whether or not this "no white after Labor Day" rule will be observed. If you are in Southern California, Arizona, NM, Florida or the Caribbean then I would not worry about the rule.

Wear what you want. The dictate was from the North East and does make some sense when one thinks of the climate and the geography there. White shoes on a brisk Autumn day would look silly.

Since this edict was issued, Winter White has been introduced. Warmer and more creamy, it is accepted almost everywhere in winter.

I do not live in the sun belt, but I have friends who do and all of them adjust their wardrobe as to season.

That rule is no longer a rule. You can wear any color you wish all year long without being criticized for violating fashion rules. Also, it seems to me that the only reason a person would not want to wear white after labor day is because white is viewed by many as a summer color. However, when you consider that in some states the climate is warm all year long, the rule never made much sense to begin with.

This is a very outdated nonsensical fashion rule. Even the fashion designers don't adhere to it anymore.

There are no "rules"....

If you're in an area where it's hot year round, then white is worn year round. And, don't forget, there is a "winter white".

Sure, if it's 40 degrees out, you will look silly in bright white capris or shorts...but you aren't breaking any laws!!!

"Official rules" for fashion are nothing more than pure bull manure used by the wealthy to segregate the rich from the poor.

"Official fashion rules" are a vile holdover from the old slavery class system in early America.

As long as you ,and your clothing, is clean well kept "Official fashion rules" don't mean squat.
