Fashion rules are so incredibly outdated and fortunately, rules are meant to be broken - fashion rules included.
In fact, being fashionable is often associated with not following any rules at all, and wearing exactly what it is that you feel like wearing. Style is a representation of who you are, and ladies, you'll be damned if you can’t wear a stunning pair of comfy white linen pants in October simply because of the date.
So, here’s to breaking out of the laundry basket and rebelling against old, silly fashion rules that truly make no sense anymore.
You can’t wear white after Labor Day
With that said, it only makes sense to start this fashion blog post off with the ridiculous rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day. Wearing the chic and crisp shade of white should never be limited to only a couple of months. It’s a complete staple within every wardrobe, and when does “before Labor Day” officially start anyway? This rule doesn’t make any sense, and it definitely needs to be broken.
Keep in mind that there are some white fashions that are best when worn during the summer season, such as a white summer dress, but don’t write this shade off altogether.
Your bag must match your shoes
Your bag is your bag, and it really doesn’t have to match anything in your outfit at all. Sometimes, your handbag is the only way to bring some excitement into a rather dull ensemble, and that’s not to mention that matching your bag with your shoes can actually be a serious fashion faux pas.
Just think about it for a second - a tapestry or fringe handbag would definitely look much better on it's own instead of paring it with tapestry shoes. So, scratch this fashion rule off of your list. There are some handbag styles that are just better off as being JUST handbags.
You can’t mix prints
Well, this is just silly. Mixed prints are one of the biggest fashion trends. So, stop fighting off the temptation of this outdated fashion rule, and indulge! Pair your stripes with Paisley printed pants, and pair your plaid with a graphic tee, animal print with lace and polka dots - you name it. Whatever you feel like, wear it. Mixing prints is a total must, and following this fashion rule would simply mean that aren’t treating yourself to the current fashion trends.
You can’t mix black and blue
Says who? If we learned anything from the Backstreet Boys in the 2000s, it was that black and blue looks absolutely fabulous together. It adds a layer of sophisticated with classic, and sets a mood within your ensemble. So, do the black and blue! If done properly, it can even be the brightest collaboration to date.
You have to be tall to wear long dresses, rompers or high pants
This is a fashion rule that is way too discriminatory for 2016. We live in a world where anyone can wear whatever they want. A boy can wear a dress if he wants to and that is totally okay. Hello, Jaden Smith.
So, who’s to say that you have to be model-height just to indulge in the tall fashion trends? Maxi dresses and long pants are perfect for anyone. However, you may need to wear some heels with them to ensure that you look sleek and slender and not short and frumpy.
