Wearing White After Labor Day

Posted on: September 3, 2013

Are you a WALDO?

Do you have a White After Labor Day Outfit?


Growing up I used to hear people say that you should never ever wear white after Labor Day. Growing up we didn’t have many clothes so I probably didn’t have enough white outfits to wear the entire summer let alone carry over past Labor Day.


Now the older I get the quicker the seasons seem to change and the larger my wardrobe grows. I don’t know about you, but I never get a chance to wear all of my summer outfits in the summer months. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but September 21st is the actual date so I will continue to wear white until then and maybe perhaps even into Fall.

Yes, you can absolutely wear white after Labour Day! I wear open-toed shoes as long as possible, then I switch to boots because I hate wearing nylons! πŸ™‚

Yes, I think you can wear boots in the summer as well – I did that too – lol

You rebel you! πŸ™‚

I say you can definitely wear white every season! Love the outfit and the funky bracelets.

I am very curious, how did you get a scan barcode for mobile apps for your blog and can anyone get that added to their blog…I need info if U have time 2 give. Thank you so much.

Yes, there are several websites,
I also have other links if this is not what works for you.

U R A true sweetheart. I will try this one and let U know. Thank U very much.

You are welcome, I didn’t use that website so just in case, I have the papers at home and will respond this evening.

I used the 1 U sent me and I have it up on the site, but just in case, when U get time, send me the 1 U used if U don’t mind. Thank U.


Thank U much, I’ll check it out.

I have really never understood the rationale of not wearing white after Labor day. I wonder who made that edict, and we all followed.

Somebody who didn’t have a lot of White Clothing – lol!

My take is that you can wear white white as long as it’s not too cold or you balance it out with something darker or it’s a heavier material. When it’s winter time I switch to cream and off white.

Yes, that works, I always love the black and white combo.

You look great, and great find on the $1 pants! Due to children and dogs, I rarely wear white. I also feel like white washes me out. However, I do think there is a place in a woman’s winter wardrobe for a white jewelry, or even a cozy white sweater with a dark skirt or slacks!

oh yes, a big fluffy white sweater in the snow would be perfect…talking about being washed out! ((^_^))
Enjoy the rest of this short week and thanks for stopping by.

Living down here in the sub tropics…we don[‘t go by the Labor Day rule…thank goodness. Looking great as always.

I know which is why us in the Mid-Atlantic should follow suit! Have a fantabulous week.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wearing white after labor day. Those social rules are silly. I will definitely continue to wear white after labor day. There’s even “winter white.” I love your B&W outfit πŸ™‚

Hey, I know you will…no doubt about it – lol!

Here in Southern California white and sandals are year-round wear! πŸ™‚
You look beautiful btw…

Life With Lorelai

Yes, I miss the left coast – lived there a short while in my early years. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your evening.

You got those great pants for $1.00, you got me beat for sure. I live in South Fla and we wear white when it is not cold, like two weeks in Feb.

I love Florida and if I lived there would probably wear white all year long as well. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week!

BTW- the jeans was a fantastical bargain at JCPenney and I prayed they fit!

The point behind not wearing white after labor day is because the color washes you out as your tan fades. Thanks to being a mix of native american and Scottish I have blood hair and a light tan year round. I can pull off white any time well if i did not have messy hands grabbing me all the time. Peanut butter on my jeans now. I can;t wait for a shower after bed time no white for me unless going out.

Ah…now that makes a little sense – lol!

I can’t imagine NOT wearing white period, let alone because its after Labor day. I think that idea is so time to move away from…great pics keep wearing your white lets rebel πŸ™‚

Thanks sweetie, I love white and as long as it’s matched appropriately it should be worn every season! Thanks for stopping by!
