Conventional fashion—no white before memorial day

Conventional wisdom says it’s a major fashion faux pas to wear white before Memorial Day. Traditionally the only exception to the rule is a white wedding dress, so—unless you’re tying the knot—keep the pearly whites in your closet until June. In case you don’t remember, Jamie wrote extensively on this topic in her three-part editorial, Pre-emptive white pants Wednesday. From our perspective, only truly fashion-savvy women have enough self control to abide by this rule, whereas the rest of us defy conventional wisdom and celebrate sunny spring days in white.

We think it’s great to have fashion rules, but, like all rules, some deserve to be broken. After all, it’s doubtful that you’ll be reprimanded for wearing white in April … but pushing back into February is a different story. Believe it or not, there is an undercover fashion police. Members of the elite fashion rule enforcers walk amongst all of us; in fact, you might be one, and if not, I bet there’s someone in your office or circle of friends who is. 

What’s your take—do you wear white before memorial day? The ladies at Fab Sugar are conducting a survey to find who wears white before Memorial Day.

    First of all winter white is super chic, but fashion rules such as not wearing white before labor day are from our grandmothers time they are not modern rules and should not even be considered
