Breaking fashion rules in style
There are certain rules of fashion that we take for granted. Since time immemorial we have been told that good girls don’t wear two bright colours together in one outfit, there always has to be one nude or pastel. Reality check: colour blocking is a major trend today! Similarly following are 3 fashion rules that I believe are the most fun to break:
We usually pair our printed tops with solid colour pants or jeans. Take a break from this rule and go ahead and mix your printed separates! Depending on your body shape pick up two contrasting colours prints and pair them with solid colour shoes. If you want to play it safe then, pick up two different prints from the same colour family. There is no right way of doing this, so just try on different outfits and find what suits you.
For 2010 Grammy Awards Party, Taylor Swift wore this stunning silver dress with golden shoes. Metallics are neutrals today. You can layer on gold and silver accessories or even dare to wear something that has both gold and silver in it. Mixing metals is now ‘allowed’. Think of all the cute pieces of jewellery there is in this world! Kim Kardashian here is wearing big gold earrings and a silver cuff. If you have just begun to explore this trend, you can take a cue from Jennifer Aniston by keeping the outfit really simple and dark and pairing it with two delicate long necklaces mixing gold and silver.

If you are still following the golden rule of fashion (of 1950s) – a good girl always matches her shoes with her bag and belt- then you need to wake up and join us all in the 21st century. It is so boring to match all your accessories. The fun lies in mixing different colours accessories. You can even do this with your work outfits.
