6 Fashion and Beauty Rules to Break
Many fashion and beauty rules have been passed down through generations, but now they're completely dated!
Some beauty rules were meant to be broken!
Labor day is approaching, and if you’ve picked up any fashion magazine over the last 30 years, fashion editors always advise against wearing white after labor day. While beauty rules advise against wearing a white lace mini dress in the middle of winter, there’s nothing more beautiful than a winter white look with lots of texture, like knit and leather! They key to wearing white after labor day is sticking to heavier fabrics and textures to avoid looking too summery!

Don’t make your makeup look to monochromatic
It’s been said that you should avoid wearing makeup looks that are too monochromatic- but we think that there’s never too much of a good thing! If you find a great eyeshadow, lipstick, or blush shade that compliments your skin, hair, and eyes- wear it! You can even use your eyeshadow or lipstick shade as a blush to ensure a perfect match.
Choose silver OR gold jewelry
Choosing between silver and gold is like picking a favorite between children! Why choose when you can just wear both? Mixing metals has become increasingly popular in fashion and can be seen worn by fashion experts & bloggers. If you’re new to the trend start by stacking bracelets and rings in mixed metals! Some brands are even making pieces with the metals combined.
Don’t wear a bold eye and a bold lip at the same time
While we don’t necessarily recommend going to pick your kids up from school wearing a full smokey eye and a bold look- there’s definitely a place for it. You don’t have to choose between drawing attention to one feature or the other, you can easily highlight both with the right execution! A bold lip paired with a dramatic eye look is a great option for a night out.
Take off one accessory before you leave the house
We’ve all heard this before- take off one accessory before you leave the house. If you’re wearing 13 layered necklaces, you may benefit from following the rule- but in your opinion more is more, especially when it comes to accessories. You could be wearing a plain black t-shirt and your favorite jeans and add so much style and variety to an outfit through the accessories you choose to pair it with! Necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, handbags, hair accessories and sunglasses are what make an outfit original and unique.
Menswear is only for men
Stores are laid out with men's and women's sections, but as we’ve seen in fashion and culture over the decades, women look amazing in oversized men’s styles! Beauty rules aside, and regardless of which clothes are labeled as men’s or women’s, we believe anyone can rock anything!
