Outdated Fashion Rules You Should Break
As we get older, it gets harder to rebel, so whats the grown up way to fight out of the cliche fashion statements? Breaking style rules, of course; while looking all the more stylish.
Here are a few Fashion statement rules meant to be broken:
Rule 1: Never Wear Navy And Black. Both colors are great, but the trick in styling is choosing pieces that complement each other, rather than compete with one another. They’re just as easily thrown together for an off-duty weekend look – think a navy polo shirt with black jeans and white trainers.
Rule 2: Don’t Wear Joggers Outside Of The Gym. This is one of the new Rules You Should Break. Without athleisure, the world would feel like a lot less comfortable place. The cut of any joggers worn as part of an everyday look should be streamlined and come as close to tailored trousers as possible. Similarly, the color should be neutral, and there should be minimal-to-no branding.
Rule 3: Never Wear Hoodies With Tailoring. If you’re accustomed to this fad, its a definite Rules You Should Break. A fairly lightweight hoodie free of brash branding, cut from a premium material and in a color that reads more smart than slouchy will ensure your outfit comes off sports luxe as opposed to just sports. Keep things on the slimmer side with a well-fitting two-piece in black, grey or lighter neutral hues.
Rule 4: Never Wear T-Shirts With Suits. You’re already making a statement by not wearing a shirt, so there’s no need to shout by adding in loud prints or blinding hues – its a definite Rules You Should Break. A classic cotton crew neck shape in a tonal variant of the color of the suit is much more suitable.
Rule 5: A Tie Always Needs A Suit Jacket. A shirt and tie can look pretty sharp without a two-piece. The secret here is a solid outer layer.
Wear it closed over a shirt and tie and revel in the satisfaction of looking sharp without the stuffiness of a suit jacket.
