It was bound to happen... when you break rules sometimes it pays off big and you forge new ground other times you learn why the rules were instituted in the first place.
Rule Broken: Sweater Vest AND Cardigan
Breaking this rule proved to me that it is A-OK to layer two sweaters without looking bulky and stay-puft-marshmellowy.
Basically, this part of the outfit, I loved.
I would argue that from the waste up, this look is a winner. But things go horribly wrong once you head South of my ribcage.
Rule Broken: Cropped Sweater Vest AND low rise trouser.
Rule Broken: Dress Pants AND slipper-like shoes (instead of something with SOME kind of heel).
Now, I'm not sure either of these rules that I've "broken" are actually codified. But I believe the picture I am submitting here, for your review, is pretty good evidence that they should be. Soon.
I guess even in personal style you win some and you lose some.
Are you breaking any rules today?
