Fashion trends come and that pretty much goes for the fashion rules too. Now, I seriously doubt any creative individual would follow any given rule to the letter but some of those rules have really been out there for so long that we didn’t really get a fair choice. We grew up with them and they kind of became normal. Luckily, not even old, traditional fashion rules are not immune to “out with the old, in with the new” policy of the modern world so let see which rules can we finally forget:
1. Do Not Wear White after Labor Day

This is a very old rule practiced in US and, since we don’t have it here in Europe, I’ve never quite understood the reason behind it. Labor Day is somewhere in mid September and since weather usually gets cold and rainy in this time, I’m guessing it has a lot to do with that. Some even say this was a way to separate the members of low and high class. Anyways, until I find an acceptable reason, I’m just going to say this – If September feels like summer on your part of the globe, wear whatever you want to. You don’t need me to tell you that rainy days are not a good time to wear white shoes and pants but, if you have a coat on, I don’t see a reason why a white shirt or blouse couldn’t be a part of your after Labor Day outfit.
