Learning of how to break the rules of style can raise your confidence and will help you give a sexier look of your own.
The 3 beautiful and stylish women Madonna, Diana Ross, Katharine Hepburn all are style rebels who built their signature looks and break fashion rules. So if you are stuck up in jolting fashion styles, it may be time for you to bring out the fashion diva sleeping inside you.
So are you ready to take the challenge? And bring out your very own personal fashion designer? So here are some fashion myths and rules you should break.
Don’t wear white after Labor Day
This lame myth has been followed for so long that it’s getting old day by day. White is definitely appropriate for cold and also gives you fresh and modern-feeling. One thing to keep in mind when tackling the white-in-winter trend: It’s all about the fabric. Just keep in mind not to wear lighter fabrics, be sure to deal in white wool, cashmere, mohair, flannel, silk, or leather, p.s. roll out white boots for fall, and get on it!
Navy and Black don’t go together
And that.. makes no sense at all!!! Together with Navy and black look super-sexy. This combination started during the 2012 fall collections, in runway looks. It’s a rule worth breaking, even if only wearing a navy blue dress above opaque black tights.
Shorts are only for summer
Rocking a pair of shorts in the winter with dark colored tights and ankle booties. Stay away from lighter fabrics and rock yourself in shorts made of leather, wool, jacquard, denim. They will give a super-cool paired with ankle boots, tights, and a chunky sweater come fall and winter.
Mixed prints are too busy
Mixed prints give you an extremely fresh and mesmerizing look, and emphasizes your body tone and persona from ordinary to street-style. Street style pros know how to carry melding motifs (floral with stripes! polka dots with Ikat), beginners should keep in mind that whatever print you choose, you should add a leopard belt, shoe, bag, blouse or any other accessories.
Wear silver or gold jewelry only, not both
Mixing metals whether gold or silver jewelry can gives you a dominating look. Make it look deliberate by stacking bracelets of varying widths and shades of silver and gold. Same goes for rings: wear both thick and thin in silver and gold. You can also toss some rose gold in the mix.
Horizontal stripes make you look wider
That’s a pretty cliché rule that horizontal lines can make you look larger. A skin-tight shiny bodycon dress with horizontal lines not only look good on a model figure, but pieces that are made and fit well, imagine a classic cotton Breton striped shirt tucked into dark jeans, or a layered skirt filled with stripes flatters every lady.
Don’t wear red to a wedding
There were times when red was thought to be a sexual, attention-stealing color. Yes, it might look awkward wearing a skin-tight, plunging red gown to a wedding, but nowadays, there are lots of stylish red gowns that look perfect and gorgeous at weddings.
Sneakers are only for the gym
When styled with sneakers and dressier pieces will give a modern twist to your outfit. Recent trends have shown that wearing right pair of sneakers can make you look extraordinary. Wedge sneakers, slip-on sneakers, sporty Nikes, New Balance, and Adidas are now trending with everything from sleek skirts to leather pants.
Every lady must own a trench coat. Or ballet flats. Or a black shift dress.
This fashion rules feel wildly outdated these days. There’s no specific reason behind it that says every woman should own or wear these coats or dress, so break the “rule” and wear the flats you like instead.
Don’t mix Dresses and Pants
Pairing a mini-dress with skinny jeans, or a chiffon midi dress with leather leggings, gives a flattering and extraordinary look trending on runways and on street style stars.
