Such a Rebel
I wore what I consider an unspectacular outfit to work today. My co-worker said she liked it but would never think to wear these items together. I believe any combination of neutrals works -- black, white, grey, navy, brown, tan and so on. She was surprised and asked how I know and keep track of these rules. I thought about it and told her to just break all the rules. In this case, the outdated dictums that say you can't wear black and brown together or black and navy or even red and pink (but that gets us into colorful territory). Maybe I'm just a mismatched rebel, but I tend to ignore most "rules of fashion." Petite women shouldn't wear large jewelry or prints... No hosiery with open toes... Always match your belt to your shoes. What are your thoughts on the matter of mixing neutrals, my fellow fashion-forward friends? Any rules you always stand by or love to break?
