  • it's supposed to be because you're saying goodbye to summer and light clothing. doesn't go any deeper than that

  • That use to be a "fashion rule" that most followed but not many do so today.

  • I thought that just applied to white shoes not clothing...either way doesn't matter for me since I live in S. FL and it's pretty much summer all year

  • I hate that rule. When I was growing up, it was strictly abided by. Now, I wear white when I want to.
