I think every woman believes in their own mind that they are somewhat of a “fashionista.” Some follow trends and some stick to the trusted style that works best for them. Others switch it up every once in a while and are quite versatile (I like to believe I fall under this category) with their looks.
Although we all like to believe we are doing things right, there are certain fashion myths that we have taken as gospel that seriously need to be changed. Here is a list of the 7 most common “rules” of fashion worth breaking.
Myth #1: Your shoes and bag should match
Myth #2: No Mixing of Prints
Myth #3: Navy & Black don’t go together
Myth #4: Sequins and Metallics are for the night only
I agree that sequins and metallics can be quite overwhelming for a day look. Keeping them to a bare minimum such as a skirt, camisole or jacket, with the rest of the outfit simple then the look works perfectly.
Myth #5 You have to be model tall to wear long dresses and pants
Myth #6 No stockings or socks with open toe shoes
Pairing tights with peep-toes is most definitely a look. But making sure to keep the contrast going, black hosiery with silver shoes, can add to the look. The same goes for sandals and socks, the school girl riff plays well a sophisticated look.
Myth #7 No mixing gold and silver
I hope this has been a helpful and fun way to dispel myths as well as break the rules, because all girls want to do is have fun with their looks!
