Don’t wear white after Labor Day. I have heard this numerous times. If you live in the US, you have probably heard it, too. I do not follow this fashion rule, however. Personally, I think it’s idiosyncratic. Most fashion rules usually are. I say wear white after Labor Day all you want. In fact, why not do it the Coco Chanel way and wear white throughout the year?
Oh, before anything else, can I just say that I can’t believe how time just whizzed by this summer? I mean how is it already September? I know it’s not officially fall yet, but today is Labor Day and it is the last holiday of summer. Soon kids will be heading back to school (if they haven’t already) and adults back to their work routine. No more picnics in the park, beach getaways or lazy days by the pool. Say goodbye to Summer Fridays, too. Sigh. Some good things never last (cue Barbara Streisand). But I digress.
So, here are three outfit ideas to show how you can wear white after Labor Day and beyond. Yes, even in the fall and winter.

Lastly, if you’re curious as to how the no white after Labor Day rule started, I did some search and came up with this article from Time. Happy Labor Day!
