Can I really wear white after Labor Day?The most important detail is FABRIC…if it’s white linen or a light weight, sheer cotton, save it for summer. Weightier fabrics such as moleskin, flannel, velvet, corduroy, weighty silk or satin work because they have a “heft” to them that reflects the season – the color is secondary. It’s also important to consider the SHADE OF WHITE. Cream, bisque, ivory and “winter white” are naturally warmer-looking hues, and that warmth makes them work post Labor Day. And finally, you can get away with white basics such as denim and basic cotton shirts by LAYERING.
