Labor Day is a federal holiday to honour the hard work of American workers, but it is also an important date in the fashion calendar.
According to an old proverb, Labor Day is the last day to wear white. Why can't you wear white after Labor Day?
In reality, there is nothing stopping you from wearing whatever you want, whenever you want. However, there are a few ideas about where the sartorial rule came from.
Since Labor Day is on the first Monday of September, it usually means the end of summer and the start of autumn.
People also think that the "no white" rule affected the summer wardrobes of middle-class people who went on vacation and left the humid big cities.
No matter how long the rule has been around, there is no real reason to follow it in 2021. Many stylish celebrities wear white after Labor Day.
In October 2020, Kourtney Kardashian was seen going out with her friend Addison Rae, who is a TikTok star. She was wearing a white satin shirt dress.
Hilary Duff was seen filming Younger in New York last November wearing a white outfit with a chunky sage green cardigan over it.
In the same month, actress Olivia Wilde wore white on the red carpet, and singer Ella Mai performed at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in a fun white feathered dress.
A lot of other fashionistas have also been seen wearing white to New York Fashion Week shows in September. This is because many of the shows happen after Labor Day.
