Fashion Rules

Me in one of my first modeling shoots circa 198something

Do you follow fashion rules? I think there are some fashion rules that are totally made for a reason, and personally would not break, but others, are definitely made to be broken. Here are a few common (and not some common) rules/faux paus to keep in mind (or not) when you’re dressing…

  1. No white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day (unless of course we are talking winter whites and velvets)
  2. This time frame (above) also goes for linen
  3. No corduroy during the summer months
  4. No visible bra straps
  5. No mixing animal prints
  6. Don’t over accessorize
  7. Socks with word..ugh
  8. Don’t mix too many fashion trends in one outfit- reign it in girl!
  9. Too much denim! (on the top, on the bottom, and everywhere in between)
  10. Mixing black and brown (not all neutrals go together!)
  11. Clothes that totally don’t fit you- too big or too small
  12. Pattern mixing
  13. Dressing “your age”
  14. Say no to fanny packs
  15. Dress in this decade
  16. Wearing white to someone else’s wedding

What do you think? Yay or nay to these rules- I personally follow 1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 ALL. THE. TIMES. (Because ironing linen is a pain in the ass anyway and I literally wouldn’t be caught dead with socks and sandals!) As for other so called “rules”, corduroy mini skirts are freaking adorable, one might say you can never over accessorize, these fanny packs are the shit, and I almost exclusively try to dress out of this decade…so, there’s that…)

Here’s the new fashion rules for 2017, according to experts. 

And as for rule number 13…SCREW THAT! Here’s the BEST ARTICLE that speaks to dressing your age! And, by the way, wear whatever the F you want.
