Fashion can be demanding, and sometimes it’s just hard to keep up. With so many new trends and styles to try each season, the likelihood for fashion faux pas shoots way up. But no matter how many times we’re told to follow these rules, some of them are just damn too fun to break. Read on to find out how you can get those tricky fashion blunders right into the best dressed list.
THE RULE: Don’t wear gold and silver together.
This much shine might be too much for some people but take it from the pros to learn how to balance these metallics without dialing down on style.
THE RULE: Bag and shoes must always match.
Gone are the days when colors were matched to a T. Complement rather than coordinate and get color-happy with your bag and shoes.
THE RULE: Horizontal stripes are always unflattering.
Use that visual illusion to your advantage. Let those stripes accentuate your curves or wear them sheer with a sexy top.
THE RULE: Don’t mix blue and black together.
Just ‘cause neutrals go with everything, doesn’t mean they can’t go with each other. Get deeper dimensions with different textures of these classic colors.
THE RULE: Tone down crazy prints with solid colors.
More is sometimes truly more. Find the right play of prints and patterns by experimenting with their placement.
