If you’re an avid reader of fashion magazines then you know what a struggle it is to follow some trends. There is constantly something we seem to be doing wrong! We don’t believe in succumbing to the pressure to look a certain way, on the other hand, we think there are a few fashion rules that we all SHOULD break. We’re in the new era of fashion where there are no rules - if you like it then flaunt it! Here’s a list of 10 fashion “rules” every girl should break.
1. Matching your nail paint to your outfit
The incessant need to match your look down to a tee is a habit you can let go of. Changing your nail paint colour is a whole different process altogether, not to mention a super tedious one! It’s absolutely fine to have your nails dressed in pink, while your dress is in a gorgeous shade of blue.
2. Don’t wear clashing prints
Excuse me, you can totally rock a print-on-print look. Use a subtle print to dominate a light print or mix them up with some neutrals. Have you seen how amazing polka dots look when combined with horizontal stripes? If you haven't already then go try it now!
3. Dress to impress!
Always wear what you want to wear. Every girl’s style is unique and our clothes are a reflection of that. Even if you’re dressed in an over-sized hoodie and comfy pajamas, you’ll look the best when you’re dressed as yourself. Because fashion is All About You! Check out this inspiring video by All About You from Deepika Padukone that captures real women and their take on beauty and fashion. It’s time to love yourself and celebrate yourself for who you are!

4. Put on a pair of heels if you're short
All we’re saying is, you can, but you don’t HAVE to. There is no real need to stagger around in those high heels when you’re clearly so uncomfortable. After all, how will you dance to the breakup song if you don’t break up with those uncomfortable shoes?
5. Don’t wear sequins in the day
Whoever says sequins are only for clubbing (or NYE), does not have enough sparkle in their lives! You can always wear sequins for a day out with friends and totally rule that outfit. We say - shine on!
6. Sneakers are for a casual look
No, you don’t have to wait to hit the gym to wear your funky new sneakers. Put on a dress, a gown or even a traditional lehenga skirt - your sneakers can be paired with literally anything!
7. Wearing crop tops only if you have a flat stomach
Just because you don’t have abs like a Bollywood star does NOT mean you can’t wear that cute crop top you’ve been dying to! You can wear anything as long as you feel comfortable and confident in it.
8. Wearing stripes can make you look wider
Stripes are classy, stripes are pretty and stripes should be worn no matter what. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. Okay? Okay.
9. Wearing glasses makes you look like a nerd
Have you seen Deepika Padukone wearing glasses with pencil skirts? Well, if you have, then you know that it is a good look for just about anyone. Use them as a statement accessory and rock that geek chic look!
10. You have to wear matching shades
Hello, have you heard of colour blocking? Don’t shy away from wearing pink stilettos with your favourite red dress! You can wear colours that are absolutely opposite on the colour wheel, and still slay. *This is a sponsored post for All About You
