Ever wondered what the saying “don’t wear white after Labor Day” means? It’s an old-fashioned adage dating back to the early 20th century, when well-to-do Americans often wore light-colored dresses, white linen suits and Panama hats on vacation. The end of summer marked a return to darker, work-appropriate fall clothing.
Times have certainly changed since then — white is an acceptable color all year round. But in honor of the good old Labor Day tradition, we’d like you to send us your best white-themed snapshots.
Has something white captured your eye recently? Maybe you went whitewater rafting or baked a white chocolate cake. Perhaps you painted your fence white or picked some daisies during a picnic. Maybe you took home a white kitten from the shelter. The possibilities are endless, and we want to see them.
Feel free to interpret the white theme however you wish. Whether you’re shooting on a cellphone or a DSLR, all photos are welcome. Send us your best shots of white — we can’t wait to see your inspiration.
