White After Labor Day -- You Won't Get Shot

     Not everyone's a fashion expert, but there are some things everyone knows, as, for example, you don't wear white after Labor Day. It's a rule so entrenched it even inspired homicidal behavior in the 1994 dark comedy Serial Mom.
     And apparently the fashion police has decided it's time to put an end to that. Word is out that it's okay to wear white in the fall, with fashion designers becoming the instigators of such season-color upset. If you like the way your white jeans fit, there's no fearing for your life any longer any time of year.
      Glamour magazine gave it its blessing last year: http://www.glamour.com/fashion/blogs/slaves-to-fashion/2009/09/will-you-wear-white-after-this.html And fashion website Style.com reports that not only will white pants be allowed this fall, they will be essential: http://www.style.com/stylefile/2010/08/why-wouldnt-you-wear-white-after-labor-day/.
     What gives? Color rebellion, I guess. So go ahead and lighten up the winter wardrobe.
