If you want to showcase your personal style to the world while you wear your heart’s desire, be prepared to break some rules. Take a cue from these celebs who dared to go against the fashion ‘No-No’s, and pulled it all off with élan.
LIGHTEN UP, LINGERIE
Although we fully support wearing undergarments to suit one’s outfit, we are definitely not against some tease. So if you think you can carry it off, show off your bra-straps or offer a peek into your bra under those cool sheer or net tees.
NO MORE NUDE BRAS
Whoever said one has to wear only a nude bra or one that matches your complexion under light-coloured tops has not seen how many times Sarah Jessica Parker has broken the rule. It was Sarah’s character Carrie Bradshaw, in the hit TV series Sex and the City, who popularised the trend
Curvy women should opt for vertical stripes and avoid horizontal ones, they said. But if you see some of our favourite fashion icons, you’d think twice about junking those horizontals, and you’d think differently. Very differently, we say
PRINT OVER MATTER
This is yet another ‘no–no’ that has been blown to smithereens. So if you crave to go all prints, know this: print on print is very much the in-thing. One must, however, knowwhich print would go on what.
DENIM ON DENIM
It’s a beautiful, multiseasonal fabric— denim. But when worn and re-worn in excess, it’s usually got the thumbs down from the fashion police. But Kylie Jenner and others show us why they can be wrong. Load ’em those denims, we say.
SHOES UNDER DRESSES
Fine, we love our heels, but it doesn’t mean we want to always sport stilettos under our dress. For those who weigh comfort over anything else, this is your cue to flaunt that super cool sneakers under your chic dress.
THE DRESS CIRCLE NO MAXIS FOR SHORT GIRLS
Is it us or is this a rule too mean? Any woman can flaunt a maxi dress or long skirts, we think. And the little-over-5-ft-tall Eva Longoria proves our point right there.
AIN’T NO SHINE WHEN IT’S DAY
We refuse to believe that sequins and shines are best left for the evenings. If you are up for some bling, we think you must flaunt them, no matter what time of the day!
THE COLOUR CODE NAVY WITH BLACK
We don’t know about you, but we love this combination in an outfit. Black and navy is elegant enough for talking business or night-out fun. Though the look is especially apt for the winters and fall, you can try them out in other seasons too.
BREAKING THE COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS:
We no longer buy the theory that colour blocking must restrict to a warm colours from the colour wheel, like a red and fuchsia, wear it all by means. Create your uber cool statement, right there.
BLACK AND BROWN COMBO
This combination livens up your ensemble and brings out the trendy and elegant you. We wonder how it was ever considered that mixing both these dark and strong colours was a fashion faux!
