Not breaking Fashion rules: finally understanding why

There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

In the early 1900s, the rule about only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day was started according to the vacationing schedule of the elite, when there “was a dress code for practically every occasion.” Those who could afford it would leave their homes behind and spend months at the sea or in the mountains, where they had a completely different type of wardrobe, including the light, bright white pieces most associated with the summer months. When those fun-loving summer days were over, the white clothes were packed away and the people went back to their regular lives, having escaped the oppressive heat between the end of May and early September. Those white clothes that they loved during the summer months had no place in their “real life” wardrobes, so the cutoff for white clothing became Labor Day.

Nowadays, you may have started wearing white on the first 90F (32 C) day of year or earlier.

dievca thought she still avoided wearing white until after Memorial Day because it was the “rule”, but she finally realized that she uses white sparingly—period, because….its New York City.

Can you imagine how dirty this Helmut Lang Leather Slip Dress would get?

And that is the true reason dievca doesn’t really break the “white” rule.

Happy Memorial Day! (and wear white for dievca)
