I never believed in fashion rules… It’s meant to be fun and expressive, why limit creative freedom? In the past few years these fashion ‘faux pas’ have not only become acceptable, but even on trend! Embrace your inner rebel and break the rules.

I never got this one. I think it looks super chic.

13) You Can’t Wear Coloured Or Pattern Tights Over The Age Of 5
