Who made these rules? Why did we listen? Well I’m here to tell you that rules are meant to be broken especially when it comes to fashion. This is a list of rules that I have followed in the past and am breaking free from!
Navy and black can’t be worn together
“Don’t wear this, wear that” is slowly fading out of the fashion vocabulary! We wear paisley and floral together, so why can’t we wear that deep inky blue with pitch black pieces?
Over-sized makes you look frumpy
Over-sized is only bad when it’s not meant to be “big”. There is a different from a boyfriend cut and one size too big. If worn right it could even make you look slimmer.
Gold and silver clash
Lately I’ve been into mixing jewelry. It all started with my Alex and Ani’s and stemmed from there. Now I mix my rings and necklaces too!
No white during winter
Winter white is the best! Just look at Olivia Pope! Plus it’s light, elegant and has a savoir faire that all black seems to lack.
Never mix your prints
Fashion is at the point where leopard and stripes are becoming “neutrals”. You can wear any prints with any color, designers are now encouraging wearing multiple matters at once.
Your bag should match your shoes
Umm, that’s lame and not true…
Take off one accessory before leaving the house
This is overrated. Sorry I know Chanel’s word is the gospel but this has to change because “more is more”. Take that necklace that you wear everyday and add three more! Trust me you’ll love the look!
Don’t go places overdressed
Why don’t we get dressed up more? I am in love with Downton and they wear black tie to every meal! So what if you want to wear a sequin tee to go grocery shopping or wants to wear a tulle skirt to the movies? I say do it and do it with confidence!
Your” body type” effects your style
Short people can’t wear midi skirts, tall girls can’t wear heels and curvy girls can’t wear skinny jeans? Um what?! First of all that’s not true and second you can wear whatever you please, so have at it ladies don’t let society tell you otherwise. You’re fierce!
So comment below and tell me if you think that these “rules” should be broken? What rules do you break when you get dressed! Can’t wait to hear! Remember keep wearing the clothes you WANT to wear not what Vogue TELLS you to wear.
