Pardon my French, but Europeans really give AF to this outdated US fashion rule. And no, not because its American. But because it really doesn’t have any sense anymore. Besides these 6 cold season’s white outfits are too good not to wear them just because of some rule. So stop asking “Can I wear white shoes after Labor Day?”. Because the answer is clear. Yes, you can.
If you are from Europe, then you are probably wondering what is this all about. And why no white shoes after Labor Day. Moreover why no white after Labor Day. If you are American, then you are probably hoping I will prove you right. Well, I’m not sure if I will do so. Nevertheless, I will definitely show you there is no reason for you to put all of your white clothes and white shoes away at the end of the summer.
NO WHITE SHOES AFTER THE LABOR DAY? IS THIS EVEN A THING?
Again, there is no such thing as no white after Labor day in Europe. Not even for the white shoes. As said, not because we don’t have a special day that would mean the end of the summer, and because we don’t celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday of September. But because we don’t believe in showing our social status through the colours.
In short, we don’t like snobbery. And wearing no white after Labor day is nothing else but snobbery. Well, thinking better, I shouldn’t say it’s snobbery since people don’t even know what this rule was all about in the first place. I guess it’s more about not understanding the true meaning of this rule.
Anyway, explaining more about this later. First, something for all of you who come from Europe and don’t have a clue about what am I writing about in the first place.
THE MEANING OF NO WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY
So what is the meaning of no white after Labor Day? As you read, it means you shouldn’t wear white after the first Monday in September. Since white used to be reserved only for summer and vacation. And no one wore white in the city.
But the truth is, this is just nonsense people came up with to show they have new clothes to wear for the new season.
According to Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (in an interview with Time), people created this rule to separate the old money elitists from the new money group. Apparently, this rule helped the insiders to keep other people out and outsiders to climb in by proving they know the rules.
Anyway, all in all, this rule of not wearing white after Labor Day has nothing to do with fashion and style. It’s just some society rule that used to be a golden standard in the US. But you shouldn’t mention it to your Europen friends. Or you might get that look.
