Steer your rebellious side toward your wardrobe because we have the fashion rules you should totally toss this holiday season. From ditching the overly glitzy jewels to wearing overalls to a fancy event, it’s time to set your own guidelines. There’s no reason not to dress the way you prefer, so today we’re sharing the “rules” to ditch this year.
While holiday dressing requires a tad more effort than throwing on your typical Monday-to-Friday look, it also allows you to explore new style ideas and outfit combinations. So instead of sticking to cookie-cutter holiday looks, use this time of the year to expand your style and opt for an outfit or item that’s unexpectedly festive.
Continue reading to say goodbye to these dull fashion rules now.
Break the rule by balancing a feminine dress with menswear-inspired lace-up flats.
Dress up your sleek black overalls with a pair of fancy heels and a fitted top.
Take a note from this look and style a body-con turtleneck with a miniskirt and statement outerwear for a completely daring look.
You don’t have to dazzle at every party. Instead, try something with fringe or feathers for an equally eye-catching and festive element.
If you don’t want to completely do away with statement jewelry, we suggest opting for something sleek and shiny, or layers of dainty jewels.
Try something more interesting, like belting your outerwear. Need more ideas? Look to Olivia Palermo for unique ways to style a belt.
Mix different shades of white and off-white for the perfect day-to-night look.
We’re all about a laid-back, effortless look, so we suggest breaking this rule as often as you can. Go for a messy undone cuff instead.
You’ve already consolidated your belongings to fit into the sleek bag, so why not carry it in the daytime, too?
