Fashion Rules Were Made to Be Broken
10 things you can absolutely wear
“Never wear these shoes again!” “Throw that out of your closet forever!” Thanks for the advice, peanut gallery. We’re grown-ass women, and we can wear whatever we want. That’s why you’ll often find us disregarding these ten common fashion “rules.”
You Can’t Do Denim on denim
Thou shalt not fear the Canadian tuxedo.
Wearing black and blue is a no-no
So you don’t want to look like this über-chic lady?
Never mix gold and silver jewelry
Actually, mixing metals is modern. Matchy-matchy is not.
No white after Labor Day
Hate to say we told ya so.
Don’t wear more than one print
Look at how big she’s smiling, then tell us mixing prints is a bad idea.
Maxi dresses overwhelm a petite frame
If you want to swath your small self in drapey printed fabrics, by all means, do it.
If you’re plus size, you should stick to looser-fitting clothes
Au contraire. If you’ve got it, flaunt it.
Take one accessory off before leaving the house
Coco Chanel might’ve thought less is more, but Iris Apfel doesn't. If you're a jubilant maximalist, so be it.

Just think of all the missed shirtdress opportunities.

Listen up: You don’t have to have anything in your wardrobe. A windowpane duster more your style? Awesome.
