Do not stress about the Do’s and Don’ts of fashion. The truth is, RULES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN! Your style is something that you feel and look comfortable in, not what the rule book has to say. You can create any type of look by mixing different articles of clothing you have in your closet. Here are a few fashion myths uncovered to help you embrace your style
1. No White After Labor Day
Wearing white in the warmer months is the main reason why people think that you can’t wear white after Labor Day. White is a neutral, earth-tone color that can make any outfit look polished and trendy. It is very versatile and can be paired with any color! Also, there are varying shades of white, some tend towards tan, and others yellow. It’s important to choose a shade that’s flattering with your complexion.
The secret to pulling off a great white look is pairing it with seasonally appropriate shoes and accessories! It can tie the entire look together.
2. Beware of Mixing Patterns
This fashion faux pas has been disproved many times on the runway. In past years people believed that mixing patterns was a fashion NO-NO, leaving them afraid to try combinations out of the ordinary. The key to mixing patterns is that each design should be on a different scale. Make one the focus!
Another tip is stick to the same color scheme, or have some consistency of color in each pattern. This gives your look a cohesive and balanced effect while still making a bold statement.
