White After Labor Day? Why Not?
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) –Fashionistas have September 8, marked on their calendars for the annual Fashion’s Night Out. That’s when retailers stay open extra late and offer special goods at special prices.
But now that the temperatures have cooled, the question is whether it’s really time to put away the summer whites.
When it comes to fashion – just about anything goes. But white after Labor Day? Not for Reagan Rees’ mom, Gina.
“My mom used to tell me that when I was little,” laughed Reagan.
But now Gina is breaking that old rule.
“It is very outdated. Especially the weather we have in Texas. It was 100 degrees, four days ago?’ said Gina Rees.
Could it be the people in Big D just march to the beat of a different drummer?
Neal Singh, walking through the NorthPark Center, looked like he was dressed as a rock star.
“Oh no. I can kind of play guitar a little bit. But that’s about it,” Singh joked.
He’d never heard of the Labor Day rule. Neither had Jonathan Wright, who was wearing white socks with grey sandals.
“Are you supposed to wear socks with sandals?” he was asked.
“If you want to. Yes,” he said.
We asked NorthPark Center’s Fashion Expert Victoria Snee about the “No White After Labor Day Rule.”
“I say winter white, plain white, whatever white you want to wear is perfect all year long,” Snee said.
That was music to Tatiana Glava’s ears. She’d chosen a white dress to play the violin in a group performing at NorthPark Center.
“I thought I have a good tan after summer. So I thought a good contrast with the skin would be nice,” she said.
“I think fashion is always going to be an individual sense of style,” Snee said.
But when it comes to white, it’s no white lie. White is definitely in.
Snee said, “If you like white. Wear it!”
