Break the fashion rules this season
By now you should know how I stand on fashion rules. If not, here's a quick recap: there ARE no rules! It's all a case of attitude and how to work it - dare to be bold, people, because life's too short to be a wilting wallflower!
That's the reason why I was so excited to see the Daily Mail debunking some serious style myths this week, showing how a few of the sartorial laws we unthinkingly live by should be thrown out the window.
First up was the old blue and green should never be seen malarkey. Well, HELLO?! Has no-one else ever tried a turquoise top with a dark green skirt?! The combination is divine! Take inspiration from Jessica Alba's colour blocking experiment - at the London autumn/winter 2012 fashion shows she teamed a sky blue coat with a pair of jellybean green skinny jeans and the colour combo was sooo hot.
The newspaper also challenged the misconception that prints should not be clashed. This had my blood boiling - I personally love mixing zebra up with leopard and spots with stripes. One of the most famous flags in the world clashes stars and stripes, and no-one hears the Americans complaining about it!
Take Diane Kruger as your example if you want to do clashing prints in a chic way. She donned a long floral shirt dress with a black and white striped pencil skirt for a recent photo call, topping the whole mismatched look off with a pair of bright yellow high heel pumps.
The final fashion myth to be smashed by the Mail was that old 'redheads should never wear red' chestnut. Well I defy anyone to tell that to the amazing Christina Hendricks, who regularly steps out in flame red to match her hair. Last year, when Scarlett Johansson went auburn, she turned up on the red carpet with a crimson party dress and nude peep toe shoes.
So this week, my little Wishers, go to and break as many style rules as you can. Tweet me your pics so I can see how you get on!
Hugs and air-kisses,
