That is such a stupid rule. Who cares what day of the year it is ... if you like a color, wear it!

Rules are meant to be broken, especially in fashion.

I thought it only applied to shoes like in "Serial Mom" when Kathleen Turner murders Patty Hearst for wearing them too early. Anyway, I live in the South too so if 80 degrees hits before Memorial Day - white's in!!

That rule always reminds me of the movie "Serial Mom" with Kathleen Turner. I don't follow that rule...I love white too much and wear it on different pieces all year round. Plus, I always thought the "rule" only applied to shoes.

You mean there's actually women under 50 who still follow this silly rule? LMAO

Yes, I agree, wear it when you want to but white does say to me warmer weather except for maybe the holidays when off white works.

I always thought the rule was white after Easter and before Labor Day. Oh well, I've been wearing white since Easter and no one has shunned me yet.

Of course. That "rule" is outdated.

I always wear white, I think that "rule" is ridiculous.

I'm from Louisiana, and in the South the rule has always been no white until Easter. I guess because of our warmer climate, our 'wear white' date is earlier.

i live in canada and lots of people wear white even when it's -25 celsius and snowing non-stop. besides, there were some really cute white winter jackets this season.. so why not? ;)

Well here in Vegas, I see white all yr. long but maybe if I lived in the snow it MIGHT have some affect as to what my choices would be and I would be I guess a bit more selective.

I wasn't born here so I really don't care about that "rule". I love white so I'll wear it when I feel like it.
