The idea of a fashion taboo seems quaint in this age of informality and individualism. White after Labor Day? Been there, done that. Jeans every day, every way, everywhere? Ditto. You get the idea. Yet there still is a subject that arouses passion and discord even among the fashion cognoscenti: Is wearing white—or black or red—inappropriate if you’re a guest at a wedding?
Over time, white became off-limits to guests, and the wearing of funereal black, and fiery, passionate red also discouraged. But does that rule still hold? Should it?
The rule of the game is, if the bride is fine with it, why not add a little edge to your look?
