Growing up, we watched the people closest to us follow specific fashion rules. Our fashion sense stemmed from what we saw our family members wear. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that even as we grew up and developed our own sense of style, we still stay within some boundaries we witnessed growing up. These boundaries were passed down through fashion history. We’re reviewing some style cliches that are holding you back and tips on breaking them this year.
Trench coats are meant for winter
There is the common misconception that you only layer up when it’s winter, but trench coats are super stylish, and you’ve been missing out on creating amazing looks with your favorite trench coat. When the weather may not be trench coat friendly, the best thing to do is dress a trench coat up or down by pairing it with a short dress or a camisole and pants.
Floral clothes are for our moms
Many times, we find ourselves raiding our mom’s wardrobe whenever a themed party comes up. There’s a reason why you reach for her floral clothing. But the thing is, floral prints are gorgeous and shouldn’t be reserved for when you have a throwback photoshoot or an 80s party.
Wear demure colors when you are going for an interview
The importance of putting your best foot forward when you are job hunting can never be overemphasized! Dress for the type of position you are applying for and if you need to mix colors to create a fantastic look, do not be too shy to do just that!
Never wear white pants after Labor Day
A common fashion no-no is not wearing white pants after Labor Day. You may have noticed that this rule is fading away. Winter white pants are hitting runways and stores. Forget about this rule and wear white all year long!
Developing a unique sense of style is not a skill that can be acquired in one day. It takes doing away with cliches and remembering that fashion has no rules! Use these tips to redefine your sense of style!
