The long time debate about when to and when not to wear white is back again, like it is every year around this time. With that being said, we went to our customers on our social media pages and asked them what they thought was the appropriate time to wear white, and let me tell you there is such a mix of opinions! We got comments saying, “Starting the first day of spring.”, “Whenever you want.”, to comments like, “Not before Easter and not after Labor Day.” So when is it okay to where white? It’s a tricky answer and it really depends on you and what you feel is okay.
The first thing I think when asked this question is, ‘How did that rule even start?’ So I did some research and interestingly enough I found that this all started in the early 1900s when there was no air conditioning during the hot summer days so people began to wear lighter colored clothing (like white) to stay cooler, and darker color clothing during the winter to keep warm. Naturally, as time went on people began to think this was a “rule” that you could only wear white during that time, when in fact, it was never intended to be a rule in the first time!
Like any rule in Fashion, they are meant to be broken. Fashion changes daily as society grows and evolves, and I can confidently say our society has definitely changed and evolved since the early 1900s, and so has the fashion.
After reading about it all, I personally believe it is okay to wear white whenever you want. I mean, why not? One of my favorite fashion quotes is, ‘Forget the rules, if you like it, wear it.’ You should determine what you’re comfortable with, and what you like. You should never let anyone else tell you what you should or shouldn’t do.
