White was supposed to be strictly a "summer" color. The snobs believed "one simply doesn't wear white after Labor Day. Summer is over then." My parents said as long as your clothes are clean and decent, and the colors don't make your eyes hurt, wear what you want.
I break the rules. The minute I let some snob tell me what I can and can't wear.... It's suppose to be light colors for spring and summer, dark for fall and winter. I say who cares? If they do they need to get a life.
