I’ve been trying to get rid of this dress for a long time (because it’s super old and it slightly starts to show), yet it seems to find its way back to my closet every time. You could say that I can’t really move away from it. The fact that I haven’t found the perfect substitute yet, doesn’t really help either. They’re always too long or just a bit too short, and therefore can’t compete with this (t)rusty striped number.
Since it looks like were gonna be together for a little while longer, I figured I’d better make the best of it and wear it again. I threw over my favorite bomber jacket (found at the men’s department!) and put on my ankle boots. Oh, and a pair of tights. Opaque season has officially opened!
SHOP THE LOOK:
When it comes to fashion, rules were meant to be broken. Nobody ever really knows who even made these rules, they’re just a bunch of style myths. Besides, if fashion was restricted to rules, we would never be able to do something unexpected and probably look merely the same as everyone else. Fashion would be boring. Quelle horreur!
These are my favorite rules to break:
[1.] Gold and silver can’t be mixed together
Lately, I’ve been really into mixing jewelry, especially tiny rings or dainty necklaces.
[2.] Black and navy clash
I wear it all the time, in the picture above I paired a navy dress with a black bag.
[3.] No peep toes with stockings
It’s obviously not gonna keep you nice and warm, but a peep toe in winter worn with stockings can sometimes look really nice. I just bought a pair which are quite appropriate to wear during fall and winter, because of the materials and colors used. I’ll show them to you soon!
[4.] No white in winter
A fuzzy creamy white jumper or jacket? Hell yes! White can totally be worn in winter and give your look a cozy touch. Just make sure you opt for the right fabrics.
[5.] A bra can’t be visible
I love a bit of bra flashing now and then, as long as it doesn’t look trashy.
[6.] Faux fur looks cheap
I would never wear real fur, no matter how “rich” it looks. Cheap faux fur for the win!
[7.] Oversized on oversized makes you look bigger
Wrong! Sometimes oversized outfits can even make you look slimmer, when worn right.
[8.] A bag should match your shoes
[9.] No mixing prints
We’ve all seen how awesome print mixing can be, as it was a huge trend during summer.
[10.] Horizontal stripes make you look bigger
Wrong again! If you really do feel like they make you bigger, add a jacket so that the striped area is reduced.
What fashion rule do you love to break?
Gooood morning! Is it me, or has one week suddenly got multiple Mondays? It really feels weird that a whole week flew by again. I was just starting to get used to the weekend… 😉
Anyway, a new week is here and that also means a few exciting things coming up. One of them involves you guys and one of my favorite brands. I will tell you more about that tomorrow, so stay tuned 😉
