Fashion rules have been around since the beginning of time
and every decade there are rules that change and some that stay the same. Remember when your shoes had to match your purse, or when white after Labor day was practically illegal? Often these “fashion commandments” from way back when become outdated and can leave you stuck in fashion history.
If you haven’t noticed from my previous posts, I have a love for fancy. I sneak sequin & metallics in whenever I can and not just for a party or on New Year’s Eve like the old fashion rule requires. So gold pants & my comfiest sweater blazer were perfect for an ordinary Sunday.
Now that we are a month into 2016, it’s essential to know which fashion rules you can leave behind. So here’s a quick list of 3 fashion myths to leave in 2015 so this year will be your most stylish year ever.
- 1. Fancy Fabrics are only for fancy events. When I bought my gold pants I had no plan of attending a party, I just wanted a cuter, dressier option to swap out with regular blue jeans. Since items like metallics, sequin and big bold prints are often considered party attire, people often don’t know that they can be worn with a regular outfit.
- 2. Flats= Casual. Yes, some flats are extremely casual, but there are some flats that can still be dressed up with pants or even a dress or skirt. This is good news for women who don’t like heels or the pain that often comes with them. Sticking to leather flats can usually guarantee a great option for dressy outfits.
- 3. Bright colors are only for spring & summer. For some reason, winter brings out lots of dark dreary colors & Summer is reserved for bright and light colors. I’m a believer that worn right, all colors can be worn in any season and there’s no need to reserve bright and light colors for warm weather. Adding these colors into your winter wardrobe can not only expand you outfit options but can be a nice pick me up on dreary days.
