Fashion Rule #3 That Was Meant To Be Broken….Don’t Mix Prints!

Fashion rule #3 that was meant to be broken….don’t mix prints and patterns! Well if you want to look seriously stylish then I suggest you do. But be warned it has to be done right, if not it might look like something my daughter would have pulled together when she was three (the tie dye dress and leopard tights, specifically).

Fashion Rule #2 That Was Meant To Be Broken…Don’t Wear Navy and Black Together!

In fact pleasd do! Although wearing black and navy together was long thought to be a fashion no-no, it is much more accepted today. In fact, many fashion critics contend that black and navy blue match because they are both neutrals. There is no fashion law against wearing black and navy together. In fact, as of recently, the fashion trends are leaning toward pairing the two dark colors together. One thing to consider when pairing two neutrals, especially two dark neutrals together, is adding a bright color to liven up the outfit. Adding a bright pink or red necklace or bracelet can really wake up a neutral outfit. Another fun way to add some color to a black and/or navy outfit is to add some brightly colored pumps!image
