Several fashion myths

Don’t you think that there are so many rules in our life? Certainly, the rules which have a certain attitude toward our system of life should be applied, but if we say about fashion, they are not necessary. It’s a nonsense that the industry which is eager to be creative and full of fads and fancies has so many ridiculous rules. You should know that most of them have been the fashion rules since your granny was choosing her pieces of clothes, contemplating what to choose. That’s why we want to break some fashion rules which are not relevant nowadays.  Remember that inside all “don’ts”  there are always “dos”.

To be stylish is being fearless and not believing various fashion myths.

Horizontal stripes

A lot of women avoid horizontal stripes. They think that they look wider and heavier wearing the pieces with such print. There is a myth that horizontal stripes make you appear much wider, and the vertical stripes make you look leaner and longer. It depends on the area where they are. If you want to reduce the effect of wearing stripe prints you can layer it up with a cardigan or a blazer. Also you can choose the item of dark colours with thinner stripes. It will look stylish and elegant and you will wear stripes without any fear.

Stripes are rather universal. If you are very slim, small stripes and cute fitted shape will create the illusion of beautiful curves. In case if you are an owner of an hourglass figure, thicker stripes will look the best.

Wearing double denim

As you know denim on denim is the trend of this season. But many women are still afraid of making such a combination not to suffer from the tuxedo jokes. But don’t fear. Add some dimension to your common look – “skinny jeans and chambray shirt”.  Wide-leg jeans and denim top can look perfect even on their own, but if you pair the outfit with a sleek high heels and a stylish coat, you’ll catch everybody’s eyes.

Sparkle at daytime

Many people avoid wearing sparkle and sequins during the daytime not to look like the decorations. To be honest, they are true in cases when the sparkle is overdone. For example if to wear a sequin dress and put in a blazer over it, the sparkle will not tone done and the whole look won’t be finished. So, what to do to tone down the glitz? Try wearing sparkle tops or skirts, not the whole outfits during the daytime. You can pair them with cardigans or jackets to pull the sparkle down a notch. Pants or jeans make the look more casual, even if the top sparkles.
