    • I’m pretty sure that rule does not apply in hot and tropical areas.

      So I say wear them if you feel like it!

      Before moving south (today will only be 91) I would have said no way to wearing white after Labor Day!

    • Hi Diane, its good to hear from ya! In my opinion "NO"  in this era its safe to pretty much wear anything, any style, any color that fits your appetite in fashion, I've gotten away from the stigma of letting others decided what I can wear when and when I can wear it, and besides, if they are making white boots for the fall and winter months why not white shoes? And I don't mean the winter white either, I have seen the white boots in catalogs, online and in stores being sold in the winter months so my friend I say to you wear your white shoes proudly.happy

    • I do agree the rule about not wearing white after labor day is a thing of the past especially as the summer heat dominates the rest of the year in the South

    • I agree with the others.  Wear your white shoes whenever you want to.  But if you‘re going to wear white shoes, make sure they are spottlessly clean.  Nothing looks worse than dirty white shoes!

    • For me it is.  I wear white skirts or pants though.  But with a dark top and dark shoes.

    • I agree with everybody.  I don’t like white shoes because of the high maintenance- it gets dirty very fast.

    • I love all of these answers! I have a function to go to in 2 weeks and I was contemplating the same question. I live in Florida so it’s still hot as heck here. My other thought (too myself) was “do I really care?” ... Thank you, ladies, for putting any doubts I had to rest. :)

    • There is nothing wrong with wearing white after Labor Day - personally, however, I was so conditioned by a Southern mother that I could not do it.  Funny how those lessons of childhood make an impression

    • If you have a pretty pair of white shoes, sure, wear them and enjoy.  I looked in my closet the other day and noticed I have no white shoes, will make a note of that as white is always very fresh and clean looking especially with a snazzy pair of jeans and a white t-shirt.happy

    • I have no white shoes either.  I cannot even begin to keep them clean so I haven’t had a pair in probably twenty years.
