I don’t know who really comes up with these “Fashion Rules”, as fashion is meant to be fun, experimental and personal. Fashion is a tool for self expression and shouldn’t be tied to any rules. You should wear whatever you like, whenever you like.
If you wanna wear a bikini to work, wear it! You’ll probably get fired though… I agree there’s certain guidelines that should be taken in consideration, but when it comes to ‘rules’ fashion shouldn’t be confined by them. Black and navy can be beautiful together, even though the ‘rules’ forbid them. On paper gold & silver aren’t a match, but in reality if styled well, they can be eye catching and beautiful!
The weather here in northern California has been PMSing lately, we have been getting some warm & sunny days but also a lot of windy, overcast days sprinkled throughout. The ‘rule’ to white in fashion is to only wear it after Memorial day until Labor day. Why? Actually for some stupid snobby reasons! Even though I always wear white after labor day, (what a rebel right?) I rarely wear an all white outfit in winter, for a number of reasons. But as soon as the weather gets warmer, an all white outfit seems to be a perfect fit.
Last week the weather got really warm in San Francisco, so I got excited for my first all whiter of the year! You guys know how much I’m enjoying the off shoulder trend this season, that practically all my new purchases have been off the shoulder pieces. No surprise this top was no different from the rest of my recent scores. Costing only $18 but looking like a high end item, this lace top was definitely a score! Unfortunately, I got it from a boutique nearby that doesn’t have an online store, but I’ll link below some similar options.
Living in San Francisco has definitely made me so much leaner when it comes to “fashion rules”. If you ever visited SF you probably know why. People here are so comfortable in their own skin and their style. You can literally get away with any outfit here in SF without even standing out. Odd is normal here, and fashion rules are for fools, and I love it!
So don’t conform to rules when it comes to fashion, just have fun with it!
