Listed: The Rules – Arbitrary Fashion Commandments

Over at xoJaneonly one of my favorite sites for snark and culture commentary–Editorial Assistant Olivia is hosting an open thread on arbitrary fashion rules. The premise: In a comment for all to see, list your “rules” as they apply to fashion, apparel, and personal style. This concept is totally dope not only because it allows you to make a list (seriously, who doesn’t love to do that?!) but it also gives you the opportunity to get the inside scoop on the fashion philosophies of your peers and/or internet randos. It’s great.

…So I’m piggybacking on it here at Mieux & Mieux. Here are a few of my arbitrary, totally random, completely personal, and oft-changing fashion rules:

  1. Avoid socks at all costs, unless they’re over-the-knee/boot socks/leg warmers. Or, you know, tights.
  2. Always always always try “weird” clothing on. If it’s super odd/ugly but could be cute, it’s worth a trip to the fitting room.
  3. If it’s rainy, snowy, slushy, or otherwise disgusting, wear boots. Unless it’s late April–then it’s time to bust out the flats on sheer principle.
  4. No athletic shoes outside of the gym.
  5. Always push up the sleeves on every long-sleeved thing, ever. (Except parkas)
  6. Leggings are only pants when I want them to be.
