The color white works on most skin types and always reads 'pure, timeless' and always comes across chic if you know how to pull it off.

Summer 2012 brought us several blockbuster films, the Olympic Games, and hopefully, a few family cookouts here and there. Today, Rodeo Drive Resale (, premier reseller of 100% authentic designer bags and fashions including Louis Vuitton Wallets, Chanel Bags and Prada heels, looks toward the fall season and dismisses the fashion tradition of storing away all things white after Labor Day.

For most Americans, Labor Day signals two things: An extended weekend and the end of summer. Kids, if they have not already, return to school, family vacations come to an end, and white shoes, tops, hats and pants are stored away to make way for darker, more fall friendly colors.

While the origin of “no white after Labor Day” as a fashion rule varies depending on who you ask (some say it was an attempt by the wealthy to separate themselves from the lower class, others believe white garments simply do not agree with cool fall and harsh winter weather), at, we believe that fashion rules are meant to be broken. Fashion is a form of self-expression, and if white helps establish your personal fashion statement, go for it!

Latease T. Lashley, founder of Creatively Speaking, a Baltimore-based public speaking company specializing in fashion commentary, recently shared a similar regard: In the August 23 Baltimore Sun piece, “This Season, Designers Give You Carte Blanche To Wear White After Labor Day,” Lashley gave tips on how to make a white post-Labor Day outfit shine.

“The color white works on most skin types and always reads 'pure, timeless' and always comes across chic if you know how to pull it off,” Lashley said. “White is a great transitional color that crosses seasons seamlessly. Break the rules — wear white trousers with a navy blazer or pair white jeans with a jewel tone. Wearing white after Labor Day is like wearing black to a wedding. Everyone is afraid to do it, but you will stand out in a good way if it's done right.”
