5 Fashion Rules You Should Resolve to Break

Rules are meant to be broken, as the saying goes. But I’d argue that they have to be broken. Otherwise, fashion would never evolve; men would still be wearing top hats, and women would be hiding their bare ankles. Let the following tips set you free!

Outdated Rule #1: Your bag and shoes must match.

 This holds true only if you’re also coordinating your gloves and bonnet. Hello! It’s 2017. If they happen to match, it’s no big deal, but the modern look is to use an accessory to add a pop of color.

Outdated Rule #2: You can’t wear black with navy.

 They are both neutrals (like white, khaki, and brown), and it’s perfectly fine to pair any neutral with another one. The trick is to make the combination look intentional by choosing a medium navy (rather than a dark navy) for some contrast.

Outdated Rule #3: Don’t mix prints.

 What? That’s like telling a woman in 1954 not to wear a poodle skirt! The easiest way to pull this off: Find two patterns with a common color palette, or pair a bright print with a neutral print.

Outdated Rule #4: Never blend gold and silver jewelry.

 Remember how I told you black and navy are neutrals? Well, guess what, so are gold and silver. You can absolutely wear them at once. Just layer them evenly, or use a mixed metallic statement piece to pull it together.

Outdated Rule #5: Sparkle for only the evening.

 Shiny (or sheen-y) pieces instantly add oomph to an outfit. As long as the other pieces you have on say ‘daytime,’ you won’t look like you’re 12 hours early for a cocktail party.

Bonus tip: Add a hint of shine!
