Here I am.. breaking all the rules & wearing white after Labor Day! I fell in love with this linen mini shift dress as soon as I tried it on. It’s lightweight, fits perfectly, & requires minimal effort (aka no zipper needed). I’m also convinced that it looks cuter with more wrinkles so, that works out well.

Now, let’s get into those ridiculous fashion rules. They don’t mean much nowadays since fashion is much more of a personal choice than a set of rules. As a society, we’ve become much more accepting of weird sh*t that I don’t think wearing white after Labor Day is going to raise an eyebrow, ya know? Which brings me to Rule #1:
No white after Labor Day.
No one follows this rule, ever. White is a classic color that should be a staple in your wardrobe. The weather is wacky & because of global warming, we have 80 degree days in February & snow in May. Wear white all year round & be a bright light in a sea of black.
Don’t wear black and brown together.
There’s a lot of colors you “shouldn’t” wear together but chances are, they can work. Colors like black, brown, and navy are neutrals & should be treated as such. I love the look of an all black outfit with brown accessories (i.e. a coat or a belt) or a navy shift dress paired with a black leather jacket.
Don’t mix metals.
You’re either one or the other, right? Wrong. Mixing metals, especially rings & bracelets, adds some texture, contrast & charm to your jewelry stack. I wouldn’t wear gold hoops with a silver chain but I’d definitely applaud you for stacking dainty rings in a mix of metals.
Pantyhose are for old people.
This is a personal favorite because pantyhose are weird but necessary… in certain situations. You won’t catch me in a pair of thick, colored, or patterned tights but I am a huge fan of sheer tights, nude or black, for the colder months. Extra points if they feature a control top to really suck you in (I get mine at CVS). If you’re going for nude pantyhose, wear a pair that matches your skin tone – they give the illusion of a tan.
I could go on & on but there’s only so many hours in a day. These are 4 rules you can find me breaking on a weekly basis. What is one fashion rule you think we should all break? Shop my look below & I hope you had a great weekend!
