I feel like this generation’s take on style is so free, wild, and limitless. I love that rather than living by the rules we all have heard of (navy and black don’t mix, black and brown don’t work, never wear white after labour day, etc.) we challenge them. I can recall being told to never mix black and brown together, and for a long time I didn’t. But upon receiving this skirt I immediately felt like it would pair well with one of my ol’ favourites, this comfortable and warm black turtleneck sweater. And so I threw it on and thought, screw the rules! Click through as today I am talking about the style rules you need to challenge, bend, and break.

While this at times can definitely clash, I have found that sometimes brown paired with black can look very sleek and sophisticated. I feel the key to this is playing with texture, for example mixing a suede or leather skirt with a black shirt creates a really unique and stylish outfit.
Seriously one of my favourite combinations, pink and red always looks so sweet, bright and playful. This off-beat pairing can look incredibly chic. It’s a great way to make a statement, so if you’re feeling bold try rocking these two colours together!
Screw no white after Labor Day! White jeans, dresses, and tops tend to be my favourite pieces and I’m not hiding them away cause of some silly outdated rule. I love crisp white pieces and I intend to wear them year round.
To be honest, I love navy and black together. Always have, always will. I think a navy dress paired with some strappy black heels will always look chic.
The idea that your belt needs to match your shoes is bizarre to me. What’s wrong with a good statement heel instead? Rather than turning to your shoes for belt advice, look to your outfit. Things don’t always need to be matchy matchy to look great, sometimes things just have to go together.
