As trends seem to come and go, it can be a struggle to keep all the Do’s and Don’ts straight, so just make sure you get rule #1 down…rules are meant to be broken! What was once a fashion faux-pas is merely a myth today. Below is a list of common rules to dispel the myths that do not necessarily apply anymore in the ever evolving fashion world.
#1 . It’s OK To Wear White After Labor Day:
Although you will want to save your white linens for the summer season, a cozy white wool sweater, coat, and even jeans are standout pieces that can be worn into the next season…think winter white!
#2. Your Bag DOES NOT have to Match Your Shoes:
If you are into matchy, matchy…by all means go for it but you do not need to abide this rule all the time. Mix it up! A playful blend of accessories always elevates a look.
#3. Play With Prints: Mix & Match:
From Polka dots, checks and stripes to leopard and paisley, print mixing is hands down one of the most popular street style trends of the last few seasons.
#4. Navy + Black:
Wearing navy and black together has gotten a bad rap in the past but now-a-days it looks ever so chic paired together!
#5. Why Not Wear Sequins and Metallic’s in the Daytime Too?!
Who can turn down a little flare?! Although you might want to save your sequin dress for a night out, why not wear a little sparkle in the daytime too. Just keep it to a minimum. By adding one piece to your ensemble like a skirt or jacket, it will keep your look simple yet edgy.
#6. Short Women CAN Wear Long Dresses and Pants:
The Midi length is in! Whether it’s a long dress or wide leg trouser, what it comes down to is a flattering fit.

#7. Stockings and Tights with Open Toe Shoes:
Pairing stockings, tights or even socks with an open toe shoes is certainly an outgoing look. For the fall season, make a statement by pairing a contrasting color shoe against black tights.
#8. Be Bold, Wear Both Silver And Gold!
Mix your metals! Whether it’s your jewelry or accessories , metallic’s of any shade can be complementary instead of clashing.
