Here at Who What Wear, we strive to decode the latest trends and fashion news in such a way that is sartorially inspiring. That being said, we want to emphasize that despite certain style tips or recommendations, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to style. Firstly, the fashion industry is constantly in flux. Secondly, you are the one who gets to decide what makes you look and feel good! That's why we love when we catch someone breaking a style rule or two and making it work.
Diane Kruger just stepped out this week in an amazing pair of velvet platform heels from Miu Miu. Normally, you would think a luxe, typically heavy material like velvet would be a no-go for summer, but it works here. Kruger made it just one subtle piece of her outfit to gave the whole look a slightly retro twist. Plus, she styled it with an insanely cute printed dress that brought the whole look into the right season. We have to thank the actress for showing all of us the right ways to break a fashion rule. It totally worked here!
