Here at Shumaker we couldn’t be happier that you get to express yourself in something a little bit more exciting!
The idea of wearing white only in the summer was probably dictated by the wealthy in the late 1800s and early 1900s. As more people became well-off, upper-class wives from old money families created fashion rules to exclude new money wives and the poor, while the nouveau riche tried to prove themselves by learning the many, seemingly subjective, fashion rules. Not wearing white after Labour Day was one of them, regardless of the temperature outside. White was for resorts and weddings and definitely not for any fall event after Labor Day. By the 1950s, the rule of not wearing white after Labour Day had trickled down to middle class America and Canada, who would not wear white before June 1st or after Labor Day for fear of making a fashion faux-pas. How boring is that?!
