White After Labour Day
No white after Labour Day. Who even decided to make that rule? I suppose that lines up with the old idea that all black was meant for mourning and denim overalls were meant for the farm. In other words: old fashioned thinking. The first rule of Fashion (or is it Fight Club?) is: there are no rules. And if there really are rules (which, hello? There are not.), these rules are meant to be broken.
I am currently obsessing over the monochromatic trend. I think the All-White, All-Black or All-Red look from head-to-toe that we'll be seeing this Fall is so ultra cool-girl and chic.
Really instead of all white, I went for a more tonal look by mixing creamy colours together in this outfit. It's monochromatic, but since I went for lighter colours and channeled an all white look, the monochrome becomes a little unexpected (and at much higher risk of staining), especially in the Fall. Although I absolutely welcome the darker colours, vampy lips and leather jackets that come with Autumn, adding lighter tones to your looks can add some interest and brightness to a traditionally darker season.
As a side note, I love my Zara slide sandals, but next time I think I would pair this exact look with some chic Gucci-esque slides or booties, tuck the t-shirt in, or tie it in a knot...just to avoid looking so Christ-like. Either way, I loved this look and loved experimenting with one colour tone besides my usual all-black security blanket.
What do you think of fashion rules? How do you break them? Leave me a comment!
