These days the fashion world is much more relaxed about what colors to wear and when, but every year you will still hear people say that white after Labor Day is unacceptable, all thanks to some snobby millionaires who decided that was a fashion no-no more than 100 years ago.

Why Can't You Wear White After Labor Day ? Now that swimsuit season is almost coming to an end, you can turn your attention to more seasonally appropriate things: spooky vibes and this whole "no white after Labor Day " business.

Sure, there's a heat wave happening right now, but before you know it, you'll be packing away your sundresses and espadrilles to make room for chunky sweaters and over-the-knee boots. But do you need to ship your cream-colored skirts and ivory pants off to storage? Yes, we're referring to the age-old question, "Can I wear white after Labor Day?" The short answer: Yes! In fact, the story behind this arbitrary dress code is unconvincingly feeble.

The history: In the late 19th century-long before you could wear jeans to a Michelin-starred restaurant-the society ladies were engaged in an invisible battle with the nouveau riche, one that could only be won by the subtle manipulation of fashion.

Every year, as Labor Day rolls around, the fashion debate begins: Can you really wear white after Labor Day ? As a style expert, the answer is a resounding YES! Get ready to throw out the old rule book; here's how to transition you summer whites into fall and beyond.

40 comments on "Can You Wear White After Labor Day ?" This was a really hard rule for me to break…partly because I knew my mother would flip if she saw me wearing white after Labor Day .

The "you can't wear white after Labor Day," rule was created to separate the old money elitists from the new money group. "It [was] insiders trying to keep other people out," according to Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in an interview with Time, "and outsiders trying to climb in by proving they know the rules."

For those who had money and could leave the city during warmer months, white was considered vacation attire. "If you look at any photograph of any city in America in the 1930s, you'll see people in dark clothes," Charlie Scheips, author of American Fashion, has said. " Meanwhile, white linen suits and Panama hats were considered the "look of leisure."

Some etiquette authorities like Judith Martin, rebuff this class theory, however, saying, "There are always people who want to attribute everything in etiquette to snobbery. There were many little rules that people did dream up in order to annoy those from whom they wished to disassociate themselves. But I do not believe this is one of them."

And, for the love of God, you can — and should — wear white after Labor Day . Still skeptical? We've come up with over half a dozen ways to make white look good all year long, and in any fashion season.

The true reason could be much simpler: After Labor Day, the first Monday of September, became a federal holiday in 1894, it came to mark the end of summer. Vacationers packed away their breezy white dresses and linen button-downs in favor of darker-hued clothing, like navy suits and gray sweaters. "There used to be a much clearer sense of re-entry," explained Steele. "You're back in the city, back at school, back doing whatever you're doing in the fall-and so you have a new wardrobe."

Regardless of how this subjective rule really came about, no one in 2018 should feel the need to follow it. (I'm a fashion editor and I wear white year round, thankyouverymuch.) Style categories include winter whites and summer furs. Vetements even charges $1,090 for a bleach-white hoodie-that is now conveniently on sale-to further prove white clothing is seasonless.

Ahead, shop some white pieces to wear on or after Labor Day Weekend-you can do whatever you please.
