5. The History of the "White Pants" Rule
You’ve always heard you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day, but have you ever wondered why? In addition to being a traditionally-cool summer fabric, early 20th Century rich folk were often known to rock white on the regular.

So stick it to the 1% and OCCUPY WHITE PANTS!
