Fashion is filled with a long list of rules that are made to be broken! There are colors that are only for the summer, fabrics only for the winter and everything in between. Though there are many different guidelines on what is appropriate to wear during every season, some rules are meant to be broken and often are by Fashionistos. Wearing white after Labor Day is one of most well-known rules of fashion. However, many fashion designers and icons look past these simple rules. Designer Maison Martin Margiela has shown many all white looks during his fall/winter 2013 collection. Style icons Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are often spotted in white looks all year ’round. So who needs to follow rules when you have style?! This Fashionisto effortlessly rocks white during the winter.
He starts his look with a white, black and gray colorblock shawl pullover sweater from Express. The sweater is a perfect example of how to wear white in the winter. He pairs his sweater with a pair of lightly distressed denim jeans. He accessorizes his look with a gray Polo by Ralph Lauren beanie, a black metal watch and a stylish black leather book bag. The color palette of white, black and gray is very on trend for winter and spring 2013. These colors can be styled to add a touch of class and allow you to create a simple chic outfit.
Hint: Be a bad boy and break rules! Fashion is all about expressing yourself and having fun—there are no rules to fun. Many Fashionistos take the rules as set in stone when they are not. Styling your clothes is more important than each individual piece. Don’t be afraid to take risk and break a rule or two as long as you are comfortable and confident in your look.
