That rule is archaic and stupid. Do people actually seriously follow this rule anymore?

i have a white eyelet dress that i think is way to "summery" on its own, but...i'm definitely looking forward to layering it w/ a long cardy, colored tights, and boots to "fall" it up!!! :) i love it too much to not wear it until next spring!!

I'll be wearing my white all year round. I think it looks really interesting with deep, rich fall colors.

I normally don't wear much white because it's boring. I prefer color; so, yeah, the rule doesn't apply to me.

This rule is just weird. I'll wear white when I want and that's that.

i don't really own all too much white but somethings i will still wear - white ts and the basics. honestly, most rules are better broken, it's how we advance in fashion and come out with brilliant designers

What Not To Wear told me this was a silly old rule. I bow down to the experts

I can't let a holiday dictate my fashion choices...

White is white. No one has stopped wearing white shirts! It has to do with the fabrics and the individual, and also what climate you live. You won't being wearing dark colors in Phoenix AZ. Fashion has changed over the years giving you more freedom and individuality. That's how you create your own sense of style breaking "rules".

I voted yes...I'll put away my white linen dresses and other white items, but my basic white tee's will stay and out come the creams & beige. It's hard not wearing "still summer" outfits in stays warm a little bit longer. But, I am totally looking forward to the fall/winter. I miss my favorite burgundy sweater.

I love white, and I'm not following some silly rule!

Sorry but I don't follow silly rules I have no reason to follow. It's a color. What difference does it make what time of year it is?

I have some white dresses I definitely plan on wearing post-Labor Day.

I have this really amazing white winter coat so I'll definitely still wear white. And I just bought a nice white blazer. I'm not waiting for Spring 2010 to wear it.

I said yes. I definitely store bright summer whites and start to pull out the ivories, creams and beiges after Labor Day!

I'll switch it up to creams, beiges, etc.

It's not even really a "rule." It makes no sense whatsoever. While I might not wear white in December, there's no reason not to wear it for the rest of September into early fall.
