Break the Rules: Here's How to Rock Fashion Blunders12:00 AM
Break the fashion rules.
Put aside all these years of conditioning and nay-saying. The key to being a fashion icon today is flaunting the fashion faux pas of yesteryear and adding your own personal touch to any outfit.
Here’s how you can up your ‘Wow Factor’ in an unconventional way.
Prints that are making huge waves are retro, tropical, Aztec, and animal prints. Coupling a bustier blouse and A-line skirt, or a shell top with a wide leg pants in the same or clashing prints will help you nail this chic look.
Sport This Look
Sneakers offer more than a fashionable upgrade to your outfit, they define comfort and functionality like no other. Lace up a pair when you go out for a fun brunch with your pals or even a long evening walk - they’ll add an edge to any outfit you wear.
Wear your bright sneakers with a floral printed dress and conquer the preppy look with ease. You can also don pastel shade sneakers with a bright printed dress, or wear neon printed sneakers with a more subtle outfit.
Rewind And Re-Boot
Nail that perfect boho look by wearing leather or suede boots with a floaty maxi dress. Patent boots are great for outfits with layers, and you can combine maxi skirts and dresses in earthy hues or pastel shades with ankle-length boots. If your maxi dress is sheer, you can opt for thigh-high boots, which will accentuate your legs beautifully.
However, 90s make up more than made up for the clothing. Make up trends that failed back in the 90s like nude shades and frosted lipsticks are making a huge comeback this fall. The nude shades have evolved and are now available in a variety of matte and glossy tones. Frosted lipstick has become more muted and is now a great red carpet favorite.
Mixed Metal, Bold Mettle
Playing safe is boring. Matching metallic shades is completely outdated. The key to thinking out of the box is treating all your metallic pieces as neutral. This gives you the space to focus on the textures and designs rather than on the color of the accessories.
You can wear gold, bronze, and silver bangles together to complement a cheerful sundress. You can even wear silver flats or carry a silver clutch when your dress has gold or bronze detailing.
We don’t actually care who pioneered this trend in the mainstream fashion scene, do we? This style is a little tricky to replicate. Pairing sheer stockings with open peep toe sandals is not everyone’s idea of fashion.
You can pair shorts with some sheer charcoal, black, or brown stockings. Slip on a pair of peep toe wedges or stilettos. This look is ideal for a casual outing or a movie date with your pals.
