This may be one of your dumber questions, but do folks in that area wear white clothing/shoes/purses/whatever ALL year around? Seems to be as if they would since it is Flah-rida...but maybe I'm wrong.
How long is the season there to wear white clothing?????

Well, you got my vote for dumbest question ever. And what exactly is Flah rida ? Some hickish midwestern attempt at an insult to Floridians?

Basically, I say wear it all the time with a few months off.. basically between December and March I'd keep it off.. Flip flops go all year for me, so do shorts and other "seasonal" wear..

I never wear white, other than my socks and shoes! I don't know why it would matter when you wear it.

You can wear white all year round. Compared to other places I've lived there is an extremely relaxed dress code here.

I have to stay, I have seen some of the most hideous outfits on people here, and on the most hideous body shapes. Sorry if that sounds a bit snotty, but it is true. Makes me want to buy these women a full length mirror, borrow them a friend to tell them the truth about their clothes and bodies, and tell them to burn their way too tight peach colored spandex sweatpants.

Thanks for asking that question, I have always wondered that too. I guess it is a northern thing.

I'm relocating, and the question is important when you want to buy clothes at a discount 'cause it's out of season up here. Might as well buy it when it's super-cheap, right?

Tootsie - have you definitely decided on Venice then? I know you have been asking questions on a lot of different forums, trying to find your best place.

Anyway, it seems like almost "anything goes" here in Florida. Wear what you want, when you want.
