It is not a must, just a niche. You see, white dresses mostly are either worn on special occasions or at summertime. The beginning of the September (Around The Labor Day) is the time to put off the summer clothes. After that neither today nor anytime in the history you can't see many people wearing white anyway. Some, weird rich people at the end of ninetieth century made a rule out of it to not wear white during off-summer occasions. Which coincides with The Labor Day. And that's why it is none of our business today.

White reflects the sun and therefore keeps you cooler which is why it is popular to wear in hot months. Dark colors absorb heat keeping you warmer. The rule should actually be more like, "Wear clothing appropriate for the season." That being said, even the big fashion names make wool coats in winter white, white parkas, etc. But a lightweight sundress in October looks a little silly. So put away your white strappy sandals which would get dirty quickly in messier weather and have fun with colorful scarves and hats.
This is an old rule that my mother and grandmother insisted on as I was growing up in the 40's and 50's. It mainly applied to shoes and purses and possibly slacks and skirts as well. One only wore white from Memorial Day to Labor Day. I still follow it and have already put away my white slacks.
Never judge the clothes by the weather,- white clothes match my white face,- my wife loves her white mink coat, we are masters of our fate,- why not the color of our clothes,- super marketing may make the weak minded person buy dreary clothing,- white is angelic and beautiful,- , be the captain of your clothes self master charley pownall
They say that because in some places it will actually start getting colder after labor day then going into fall and winter. Apparently you cant wear white with snow. It clashes. Dont really know why so me and my best friends wear white the day after labor day and nothing happened to us.
