Much to the chagrin of sartorial purists, that skepticism of the Labor Day law has seeped into mainstream America. From 1960s counterculture to the present day — when would-be fashionistas get as many ideas from blogs and friends as from magazines and Fashion Week — more people than ever are breaking the rule. Even the 2004 manners bible, Emily Post’s Etiquette, 17th Edition, gives the go-ahead for wearing white after Labor Day.
Just for all of you fascists who think the “No white after Labor Day” rule still exists. For the record, Coco Chanel wore white year-round. I’m fairly certain you wouldn’t fuck with her when it comes to ideas of what’s considered fashionable.
