Hi again.
Ok, this is a question this time.
In the winter, in the Caribbean and Florida and other year-round warm places, do people wear white or is it a faux paux (sp?) like up here in the great white north?

I believe the protocals for wearing white dinner jackets and formal ware in North America are from Memorial (Victoria Day in Canada) to Labor/Labour day.

In the tropics, they can be worn year round.

What happens on the ship....stays on the ship.

White is fine!!!

Although this was one of the things that was hard to overcome. After 50+years of white only after Memorial Day and never after Labor Day being drilled into my head. (My Southern Mother took this very seriously)

Whenever we cruise, I bring out all of my whites. White capris, shorts, sandals, even my handbags. Everything and anything is okay on the ship. You won't believe what some people wear! I also live in the Northeast and we put away our "whites" after Labor Day and they don't come out again until Memorial Day. Do anything you desire!

I live in Tallahassee, Florida, and I don't wear white from Oct- Jan. By Feb our winter is over and spring is already here. I would definitely say no problem wearing white on the cruise.

I can't wait to get out of this great white north and wear something other than black ! LOL

Stacy and Clinton of TLC's "What not to wear" say it's ok to wear white after Labor Day. Anything, respectfully, goes today.
