Q: Do the old traditions of not wearing linen after labor day still apply?
A: That really never has been a fashion tradition or rule. Linen, depending on its color, can be worn from early spring through mid-fall, weather permitting. The Memorial Day-Labor Day rule is for wearing summer white clothing or accessories. Therefore, if your linen clothing is white, you’d follow that rule. If it is another neutral or color, you may wear it according to seasonality, not according to defined days of appropriateness.
