Default When do you wear...

white? Do you follow the not before Easter/Memorial Day (or any other customary day) and not after Labor day rule?

I wear white all year round. I think it looks real pretty during Christmas, like the cream white. I'll through in a little red somewhere in my outfit (jewelry, scarf, purse or shoes).

Wow, thats a good question. I dont do white. I dont even own anything white....exept a couple of blouses which HAD to be white, they were part of a restraunt uniform.
Most would probably do white around holidays, though.

I won't wear white shoes after Labor Day/before Memorial Day, but other than for shoes I will wear white anytime.

IMHO, rules regarding wearing white after Labor Day are obsolete. You can wear whatever color you want, whatever season it is, as long as it's done with style and class. Winter white is extremely complementary.

This is what I love about living in Pa. As far as I'm concerned, no one is judgeing me about what I wear, no matter what color it is. On Long Island....I can still remember someone telling me on my first job that I was not supposed to wear white shoes before Memorial Day. Lucky, as young as I was, I thought quick and replied..."I'm Catholic, we're allowed to wear white shoes after Easter"

I only wear white when I'm absolutely sure I won't be eating anything with tomato sauce in it ...

I never knew white and Labor Day had any ties. Did I miss something, all these years??
