Today, I’m raising the topic of breaking fashion taboos. First thing, a taboo is a understanding that something is improper or unacceptable. For decades there have been numerous taboos in the world of fashion like never wear pink on red; brown on black, a dress that is shorter than the coat, and many more. Most of them have been broken already, but some people still feel insecure about them.
I myself used to follow certain taboos. However, being a fashion blogger taught me into being more courageous when it comes to clothing and accessories. Before I would have never worn white jeans in late November, because they are meant for spring and summer. To me they seemed improper for any other season. As you see for yourself, this is no longer valid. Let’s be honest – winter whites look so great and out of the box, and there’s nothing wrong about opting for them in late Autumn and Winter. The key thing here is not to be afraid of someone’s judging attitude. Being at piece, feeling comfortable and appropriate are the three aspects you should care about.
Having broken the white jeans taboo here, I opted for one of my favorite trends this season – turtlenecks. The grey palette was completed by the fedora hat, and contrasted well on the blue jacquard blazer. I also inserted a little pop of print through the tweed flap clutch. And that was it – a quick set breaking a fashion taboo the way I like it.
How do you feel about breaking fashion taboos, ladies? Which ones are you still following?
