There are a few theories about wearing white after labor day. The fact that labor day is a nice honorary end to summer makes sense. Starting new fall lines after labor day makes sense too. But….
“Although white clothing was clearly an upper class luxury, after the Civil War it became harder to distinguish women coming from old money or new money. The higher class ladies then made inane fashion rules to weed out those who were “out of place.”
Seriously? This old rule dates back to rich people trying to separate themselves from other rich people?
Happy Labor Day!
