When can you wear white pants after labor day?

Whenever you want! I think the rule of no white after labor day is a major fashion faux pas! It started in the early 20th century but seriously, no longer are those rules! Just as we mentioned about the warmer months before memorials day, the end of summer and early fall can be very warm too. You totally can wear white shirts, white pants, white jeans, white shoes. Basically whatever you want. The old rules of no white after labor day are long gone my friends!

So although Memorial day used to be the start of wearing white pants appropriately, that is no longer true!  It’s not too late to wear white pants this winter or even as we move into spring! We know, the weather has been a little chilly (we have 10 inches of snow outside) but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock your favorite pair of distressed denim jeans with crisp white button-downs or silk blouses before summer officially arrives. To keep things looking fresh in the warmer months ahead, try pairing them with bright or neutral sweaters for daytime looks or go all out on an ultra-casual outfit by wearing them with white sneakers.
