A while ago, I asked Summer Wind readers on the Summer Wind Facebook page if they do white before Memorial Day. Here was the response:
Quite honestly, I think that it is because before I went to college, I was in Pittsburgh and sometimes it would even snow on my birthday (April 14). So it really didn't make sense to wear white. However, being in the south, and having such gorgeous weather all of the time, it only seems right to wear my white pants. But I haven't... yet. Something is still holding me back and I think it is the tradition of the rule. I am big on tradition and rules and don't like to break them, however, I think that this is one that I am going to start to break.
I have decided that I am going to start wearing my white after Easter. It just makes sense here in the warmer climates. I am going to start small by just wearing white pants, but the closer it gets to Memorial Day, I am going to start sporting my white dresses as well. Check out my past posts on white here and here!
"There used to be rules of dress. White was to be worn strictly in the months between Memorial and Labor Days. No one pays attention to any of that anymore, but there is no denying that the first appearance of a white lace sundress..." -Town and Country, May 2012Have you worn your whites yet? Are you a rule follower or do you like to take a fashion risk every once in a while? Comment away! I am so interested to hear all opinions on the matter! Have a fabulous day!
