Fashion Myths BUSTED!
You’ve heard it time and time again, these myths that we all know that hopefully we don’t all follow! I’ve compiled a few different versions of this so-called “list” along with my two cents!
I’ve heard my grandmother say you can’t wear brown and black together, now it has changed to navy? Gold and silver can totally be worn together I do it all the time. Horizontal stripes do not make you look big or small, its the cut of the top or dress! Mix and matching prints is totally trending, so that’s just silly. Sequins are life! I personally wear bold on bold because it empowers me and labour day is just another day of the week.

I’m guilty of saying I’m too short or the wrong build for things, that’s not a concrete truth just a personal preference. You get what you pay for? Thrift! Hell yeah I do! Glasses are so sexy. I do not understand why someone spends thousands on a gawdy dress they will only wear once then spill red wine all over. I’ve seen plenty of womanly looks with a box dress showing zero waist. Is anything really timeless these days?

I wouldn’t wear double denim, doesn’t mean it can’t be pulled off. I never have anything to wear! 😉 Newer doesn’t mean a thing. I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing socks and sandals, but I still see it all the time for comfort usually. I rarely wear maxi dresses and skirts because I am not very tall and many times they over power – that isn’t to say they all do, I just prefer the look of legs vs no legs.

I know a handful of women that never, ever wear jeans for a variety of reasons but mainly lack of comfort and fit. I’m a slave to thinking I can’t wear things because of my appearance, for example, I wouldn’t die my hair black or red as I feel like it would conflict with my wardrobe. All colours are in, all the time! My wardrobe has no theme haha! Clothing is absolutely the first thing I notice about someone. We could all use less fashion advice! The amount of “friends” I’ve listened to completely humiliate the one trying on clothes is quite sad. She loves it, let her love it and own it.

There are some looks you’d expect on a younger woman that isn’t to say an older woman can’t pull it off – I think its more a personal preference and comfort concern as you get older. Depending on what skin is exposed, a look can be stunning or in my opinion, trashy. I actually don’t believe leather dresses are flattering in the first place on anyone, jackets and sometimes simple skirts perhaps.
