This is always a fun debate! Personally, I think it's unseasonal to rock white after Labor Day. Besides, it makes white more fun to wear because you can only wear it for part of the year. But either way you go, here are three tips for making white work all year long with made in USA fashion finds.
How to Wear White After Labor Day
1. Accessorize well. Since white isn't slimming, let your jewelry do double duty.

- Pick a long necklace to create the illusion of length.
- Select earrings that stand alone well and draw attention up toward your face.
2. Add color.
- With white pants and a colorful top, you can easily transition from day to night, depending on what shoes you wear and how you accessorize.
- Add even more color by adding a bright jacket or sweater.

3. Create height.
- Select shoes that give you height and stand out against white.

I see no problem with wearing white after labor day! Times and fashion changes!
I’ve never really understood why you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day. Of course, now they have ‘Winter white’ so I guess the old rule doesn’t apply, lol.
I say yes! Who cares about silly rules? If it looks good, wear it.
I used to wear white jeans with boots any time of year, but haven’t in years now. I probably would, but I think I don’t fit into them anymore, and don’t want to try to confirm my suspicions, as I would probably eat a pint of ice cream to feel better!
Normally I do not wear white slacks or shoes after labor day. I do wear white shirts and sweaters.
I grew up being told it was just white *shoes*….I don’t ever buy white shoes, so not really a problem. White isn’t exactly my color due to being so warm toned, but I do love to wear white sweaters in the winter.
Nope. I always feel funny…
I often wear white after Labor day because I have some white sweaters I really like to wear in the fall.
I love the fun of bringing out white clothes in the late spring! I do wear white tops, scarves, mittens, etc., but not white skirts, pants, dresses. Also, I do love winter white, and have items I do wear in winter white in winter (not fall or spring).
Unfortunately, white is not a good “color” for me, as I tend to find some way to spill something on it or stain it immediately. So not wearing white after labor day is easy for me. Thanks for the write-up.
It was a hard rule for me to break, but now I embrace it! I think it looks great with other soft neutrals (cream, gray, tan) for an elegant look, or I go graphic with black booties and a black turtleneck!
I'd say yes. Whats the big deal?
White is not conducive to fall/winter light….try walking outside in white shoes with snow on the ground! See how they disappear.
I always WANT to wear white after Labor Day, but I feel so uneasy, I usually don't. Old habits are hard to break!
