If you read fashion magazines or blogs, you might have picked up a few slightly strange ideas about what counts as a “fashion crime” these days. Things like…
WEARING THE SAME OUTFIT ON REPEAT
According to the fashion elite, wearing the same thing over and over again is boring and uncreative: instead, you should be constantly experimenting and evolving, by finding new ways to wear older clothes.
We say: who has the time to put so much thought into getting dressed every morning? Sure, if getting dressed is your hobby, and you genuinely enjoy the challenge of never repeating an outfit, go ahead and implement a “no repeats” policy – but the fact is that most of us just want to look our best – and we don’t really care if that means wearing the same thing, in the same way.
NOT BEING ‘FASHIONABLE’
It always surprises us to see some people still un-ironically declaring that something is “so last season” or “out of fashion”. If you like it and it suits you, then who really cares if it’s not at the cutting edge of style? Keeping up with trends will make you “fashionable”, true – but it won’t make you stylish. Wearing what you like, regardless of whether it’s “in” or “out” is a much better way to do that.
NOT DRESSING YOUR AGE
There are SO many stupid rules relating to what women should and shouldn’t wear at different ages. We say forget them all, and wear what makes you feel good – as long as it’s appropriate for whatever you’re wearing it FOR, obviously. You can be dressed inappropriately for the occasion – you can’t really be dressed inappropriately for your age.
In other words: don’t pay attention to fashion “rules” – that’s what fashion victims do, and look where it gets them! Instead, wear what looks good, regardless of what kind of rule you might be breaking: you’ll never regret wearing something you love.
