Simple Style Rules

10 things you need to know about fashion

1. Update in small doses.

Not sure the urban gypsy look is you? Try a peasant blouse with jeans or tailored pants. Head-to-trendy looks ridiculous.

2. If you think you are too old to wear something (and you're not Madonna, Demi or Cher ) then you probably are.

When your gut feeling tells you that a trend is too young for you, you'll never really feel comfortable in it.

3. Don't be afraid to dress out of your age group. 

Go with how fashion makes you feel about yourself. If you feel great in a mini and you're 55, then go for it. If you prefer pantsuits and you're 22, then wear 'em. 

4. Black clothes always look more:

  • Expensive
  • Flattering
  • Sophisticated

5.If you're flat broke, skip shopping for a few months.

Cheapo, just-to-be-buying-something items are almost always a bad investment (unless you're 18 with a great body). Remix existing clothes, alter your hair, makeup and accessories or steal something from your significant other's closet until the financial situation brightens.

6. Fads are usually over by the time the public hears about them.

Fads are a blip on the fashion timeline. General trends have a longer shelf life and are a better fashion bet and can be found at all price points.

7. Leave your look for a while.

Ultra-conservative? Punch it up in a miniskirt, lowcut jeans or a fringed handbag. Downtown diva? Try a girly knee-length skirt. In other words, play, have fun, try to remember that style should work for you, not the other way around. You'll probably go back to your look after experimenting, but with a new approach.

8. Never sacrifice your professional image for the sake of fashion.

Strappy, see-through, extra-tight or downright sleazy styles won't ever do your career any favors, regardless of your career path. Many fashion spreads will trumpet high slits, plunging necklines, sheer and a plethora of inappropriate looks in the name of "femininity." But sexy doesn't cut it for 9 to 5. Ever.

9. Fashion is just one part of how the world perceives you.

Put much more thought into your reading repertoire, spiritual nourishment and personal relationships than your wardrobe. An inner peace and glow will never go out of style. Even designer Kenneth Cole says "To be aware is more important than what you wear."

10. Fashion is all about you!

If you love it, look great in it and can afford it, buy it. Yes, it's really that simple!
