Fashion, as sophisticated as it sounds, in its very essence is a vast la-la-land for endless exploration. Despite all the seemingly restrictive fashion dos and don’ts, at the end of the day, it’s you who has the final decision on what you’d wear. Be critical and ask: why not? Because when it comes to fashion, really, no rule is the ultimate rule. And here are some fashion rules that we suggest you to consider breaking:
- Do not wear t-shirt over shirt
Button-up shirt is known as a quintessential part for clean, polished get-ups. Quite contrarily, shirts are made for more relaxed, casual look. Combining these two items in one outfit is—although quite common—usually only conforms to the shirt over t-shirt formula. But how about turning things inside out? As it turns out, t-shirt over shirt creates a look which is unexpectedly swell.
- Do not wear shocking colors
Basic colors are indeed a foolproof styling elements. But what if you don’t want to be merely foolproof? What if you’re more daring than that? If you’re not afraid of making a statement, shockingly bright colors is a way to go. The color will speak louder than a mere “Hello” as soon as you enter the scene.
- Do not leave clothes crumpled
We’ve always been told that in order to appear presentable, being clean and crisp is key. But it’s never been told that it is the only way to present ourselves. If you’d rather be seen as dynamic beings who are not afraid to actually go down and do things, go ahead, rock on those creases!
- Do not look distressed
There are enough pressure out there which demand people to look perfect all the time, so there’s no need to add one to yourself. Embrace imperfection by wearing pieces that feature details such as unfinished stitching and distressed fabrics. Such details will create unexpected impression which will be worthy of your next styling exploration.
- Menswear are for men only (and vice versa)
These days, women are walking for menswear runways and men are gracefully adorning themselves in big bows. We have, indeed, entered the time when clothes are designed to be worn fluidly by men and women. So, if you have that one piece you’ve been eyeing, but doubted buying because it belongs on the shop section that doesn’t fit your gender—this is the time to rock them!
- Do not mix prints
Not mixing prints might be one of the oldest rules in the book. But if you feel like it and you deeply trust your styling instinct, challenge yourself and tap along to this fashion’s biggest don’ts. Be fearless for instance by clashing floral and geometric in one ensemble. Then it is guaranteed that there will only be few people on the street that will rock an outfit like you do.
- Don’t be slouchy
Clothes are made with various sizes, and we have accustomed to choose ones that are exactly our size. But why adhere to sizing if a little more room on your sleeves also means a little extra comfort? We don’t see any problems in wearing clothes that are twice or even three times above your size. Because the more comfortable you are the more room there will be for your personality to show.
